February Flower Fairies

Well Valentine's Day has come and gone - I'm sure all your cards were appreciated by their recipients. Hopefully I won't ruin anyone's secret admirer status by publishing photos of the cards below!!

Michelle's demo card

Musical Mandy!

Claire W's Heart fold card

Linda B's Ruby Wedding Anniversary card

February's workshop theme is "Flowers and Fairies" - two popular theme categories so we decided to combine them to welcome in the Spring (we hope!) Michelle's demo will be stamping silhouette images and building up a scene on to colourful backgrounds. I am also doing stamping, but with paintable images, and I will be demonstrating how to mask your stamped images to add depth and build up a picture. We will be painting with Cosmic Shimmer powders and if there is time we can have a go at spritzing too.

A few more memberships will be up for renewal this month, so don't forget your extra pennies to cover that.

Our new venue went down well with everyone - lots more space to get around. Jan has arranged for someone to put away the tables at the end of the evening, but if you can all remember to put away your chairs before you leave, then that is a great help. It also makes things easier if we can collect the cups back in a little earlier than we did at APMH, so the dishwasher has time to finish its cycle before we leave the hall.

Finally I'm sure most of you noticed the big lamp post in the middle of the car park, surrounded by planters? - well Michelle didn't! (should have gone to Specsavers!!) Just in case you hadn't noticed it, please take care when reversing. Michelle's bumper is now held on (very artfully!) with duct tape - fortunately the planters cushioned the blow a little and she didn't dent her back door, so it could have been a lot worse. Don't tell her I told you!!

Looking forward to seeing you next week.
