Good morning everyone, what a difference a day makes. Settle down with a cuppa because this is an epic tale :o)
Four of us set off from Derby before 8am yesterday in the lashing gales and rain. We were on route to the wonderful Viv's at Macclesfield for a crafting get together and as we were approaching Leek we came to an abrupt halt because there was a huge tree down across the road! Luckily, there was a right turn just before the blockage so we took a chance and in less than 5 minutes were were back on the main road past the fallen tree and on our way again. We were the first to arrive and soon we were all there having our obligatory bacon butties and cuppas. We had friends from Spain, Basingstoke, Liverpool and Chapel-en-le-Frith, altogether 10 crafters and two long suffering males who had driven their respective aunts and wife up for the day. After the bacon butties, the two men went off for a trip around the peak District in the pouring rain and we ladies set off to C&Js at Edgely for some brilliant retail therapy.
When we got back we had delicious broccoli and stilton soup (made by our friend Pam from Chapel) with cheese covered tiger bread, folled by crackers/cheese and chocolate cupcakes made by our friend Issy from Basingstoke. They survived the 4 hour journey intact but soon disappeared.
Are your mouths watering? Have you fallen asleep yet? :o)
After that it was crafting all the way until dinner. Viv makes a wonderful chinese chicken curry with prawn crackers, and this was followed by sticky toffee pudding and sauce which our good friend Dizzy Di had made and brought with her from Liverpool.
We all thought we had died and gone to heaven :o)
Are you still awake? This morning we have wall to wall sunshine! Believe it or not, I am sharing a card with you today so here it is!
I don't think I could have made it much more simple!
Materials and equipment used are;
Marianne boat die
Bazzil and white linen card, gems and cord from stash.
I did put together 6 cards yeaterday for a Christmas card commission, but I had cut out all the bits and pieces at home previously. I am not uploading them because they are the same as my 3 card in an earlier post :o)
