Brace Yourselves - this is a long one!!!

Hi everyone again, just wanted to upload some pictures of what I've been up to these past few weeks to make up for my silence, be patient with me got some pictures.  First of all the holiday.  We rented a villa in La Drova, Gandia, Spain for two weeks, we went with some friends and we also know a family that live locally to that area too, this is the villa and the views...





None of me yet, those are on my hubbies camera and we haven't got round to downloading them yet (need to vet them first)!  We had a fab time with gorgeous weather all the time.

So I came back on Saturday afternoon and on Sunday morning, drove down to Rugby to a Jayne Nestorenko workshop.  We used her new Adorables stamps.  We only made two cards, but there was quite alot involved (including a Sunday lunch).  Here are the cards I made...

We made a twisted easel card (minus the sentiment because mine smudged and I didn't have time to do another one).  The stamps are from the 'Wash Day Wishes' set and I coloured them with Copics - I just love the cat!

The other card we made was a stepper card.  The image is 3 separate stamps from the 'Secret Garden' set, so we had to do a bit of masking, I coloured it with Copics and I'm really pleased with how it came out.  I was also sitting next to Paul Church (demonstrator on Create and Craft) and he though the colouring was "gorgeous"..


Sorry it's a bit blurred.

So that's about it for now, hope this justifies my absence.  Still haven't sorted my LIM card yet!!

Bye for now.
