Getting ready for the weekend

I've been quite busy this week, working at the school; the students are coming up to their French oral exams, and I help them with those. I also took my daughter on a visit to Ipswich Uni yesterday, for a look around to see if she rather go to a Uni closer to home when she goes back in September. Unfortunately Ipswich doesn't come anywhere near Teesside for facilities, so we discounted it immediately.

We had a good day with the 'in laws' on their Golden Wedding Anniversary, they were very emotional, bless them, and the day went without a hitch. Quite remarkable with 19 family members all together! I had a lovely Mother's Day too, Terry and the kids took me to the pictures and we had a meal out afterwards, and I had a virtually housework free day.

I'm going to my Mum's at the weekend, and we're off to the Great Northern Papercrafts Event at Harrogate. Hopefully, I'll be able to squeeze a visit into the beading fair too, which is also at the same location on the same day! I'll be hurrying my Mum around the cardmaking fair, so that I can have a supersonic whizz around a select few stands to buy specific items at the bead fair I think, but it will be worth it. Because Mum lives in Darlington, I have to do a lot of driving to take her to the fair, and I'm always really tired, so I'm staying until Tuesday. I'm then going to Graphicus (HURRAY!!!!!!) to see Glenda and the gang. I'm waiting until Tuesday, because Glenda told me that she closets herself away on Mondays to do all things creative. I'll then have to drive home from there, (4-5 hours) hopefully in time to pick my son up from school! Life's never easy as a crafting woman is it?

I'm posting four cards that Michelle has made in the classes over the last couple of weeks, I hold my hands up, they're not mine- I've been too busy, but she's had my guidance! They all use papers from Artylicious CD Roms, the first one she has overstamped with a stamp from the Daisy Collage set. She has then coloured white card with cat's eye inks and stamped flowers from the collage sets and cut them out and layered up with foam pads. The second card is from the Collage sets again using the beautiful butterfly cut out and some lovely fabric flowers. The Greeting is a stamp from A stamp in the hand. The third card is from the mask stamp sets, painted with H2Os.

The fourth card is a Golden Wedding Card made with the Harlequin Rose stamp, coloured with cats eye ink pads. The Rose head is decoupaged. She has used a computer generated greeting.

Well, if I don't post before my very busy weekend, I'll be back next week, full of ideas! Judith x

Lovely cards and lucky you going to a craft fair a bead fair and Graphicus - I'm too far down south for any of those.

Have a great time

Hi Judith. You are going to be busy. Love the new cards. I'm also going to Harrogate on Sunday and will look out for you. I'm hoping to resist the bead fair. Don't think that will be possible as all my friends are heading over there. I'll look out for you. I've a good memory for faces, so I'll apologize in advance for tapping you on the shoulder. Have good weekend. Debbie M.
