.... And relax !!!

Today was a day of play..... Had a thoroughly relaxing afternoon in the studio with Paula and Suzanne  making Christmas cards..this is the earliest I've ever started !!! Just have to remember to post them now LOL !! Here's a little sneak...
This was a well deserved rest after 5 days teaching at the HobbyCrafts show in Birmingham, but oh the fun we had...
One of the things we got the customers excited about was all the Fab Foils including 3 brand new colours.
Sweet Stevie (as he's known locally) never fails to entertain us all through the show and in the evenings, here he's getting in character at the chinese restaurant we often go to up there.
Our last night saw us go back to the pub in Allersley (we always try and visit this place when we're up there) the food is fabulous, meats served on hot stones, and this time they had a DJ and the music was excellent, 70's and 80's tracks...brilliant.
The show was fabulous, lots of love for WOW and so many new embossers out there now. Thanks guys for such a great time.
Lastly, I'm so proud to announce that my eldest son has proposed to the lovely Nicky after a 10 year courtship...we knew he'd get there in the end.....and she said YES !!! We're so happy and I'm now getting excited at the thought of wedding planning :) :)
Hugs

SHARING THE LOVE...

I feel very privileged to have been asked to design some cards using the fabulous Oakhouse Studio Products. Not only does she have some great stamps, ink pads and accessories but she also sells some amazing dyes that are so versatile, I love them !!! You have to check out her pipettes!!
Here's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
