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 back and created.... I 'played' and came up with this.... Sorry, I didn't get photos of Pol' time.
I even stitched a border .... I have to say using Emma's stamps makes it an easy task, then I added a few of my own from WOW Embossing Powder, some grunge paste, embossing and stencils and .... TA DAH !!!!
My previous one today was this little gem...... I think I like circles LOL !!!
I'm working it in my Dyan Reavley book....nice thick pages :) 
Here we are showing our masterpieces, as taught by Emma and Paula

This is my card using the Tonic goodies and the WOW Embossing Powder Stamps

It's a shame you can't see the pearliness going on...... Lush !!!

So I'll be getting my paints out more...good job I've got loads !!
As we all blow you a kiss goodbye......
Take care

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...

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
