We're all going on a Summer Holiday...

...No more working for a week or two (or eight in my case!) In honour of the long, hot summer holiday period I've changed the blog background - actually the blog decided for me as our other background had disappeared when I logged on. Still gets us in the holiday mood!!

Michelle and I are not heading off on our respective family holidays till after the July workshop and will both be back in time for the August one, so business as usual with the Ashtead Card Club. We know there are a few people away this month, and expect that some of you will be away for the August workshop too, so please keep us up to date on that. We will also be starting to take bookings on Wednesday for the Saturday workshop on September 11th. We are planning to do an Altered Art session and have already begun discussing ideas with Kay. Please check your diaries on this one and let us know.

Kay is helping with demos this month too. We have arranged with her to bring along her melt pot and for her to show you some techniques with UTEE. (Ultra Thick Embossing Powder). Michelle will also be giving you some top tips on using UTEE without a melt pot. I will be demonstrating triple embossing techniques for those of you who prefer to work with the regular embossing powders and heat guns.

Well done to everyone who entered our Membership Pack Card Competition this year. We announced our winners last month, as chosen by Andrea McLean - big thank you to her for doing this for us. Kay won first prize with her elegant butterfly design.

Our second and third prize winners nearly didn't enter their cards, but I'm sure they are glad they did now! Linda B came second with her penny spinner design and Sarah P came third with her butterfly design easel card.

Well done to all our winners and all of our entrants.


  1. I hope Great Yarmouth Beach looks like that! So what do you reckon? P'haps I should take some craft stuff with me just in case it doesn't?!!! ;-) Please do leave us a comment from time to time as it's nice to know that we're not talking to ourselves!!! See you Wednesday love Michelle x

  2. That's amazing - it is Great Yarmouth!! How did you recognise it?
