A Warm Welcome Back At The Wednesday Crafting Group
Hello dear friends! Many of you will know that a few months ago, before Mum fell so ill, I was invited to join a lovely group of 'crafty' ladies to join them on a Wednesday evening! I had only managed to attend twice, when Mum fell so ill and needed all my attention and I was unable to attend again, until now!
I was asked if I would like to attend again, now that things have eased off a bit and I have a little more time to do a little for myself again. Of course, I said yes! I have to admit, I was a little nervous, as I am shy around new people, and especially groups of people, bearing in mind I had only met these lovely ladies a couple of times, and although they were very sweet when I first met them, it had been quite a while ago! Why, oh why, do I worry myself unnecessarily all the time? Of course, they were as lovely and welcoming and friendly as they were the first time I met them. I had to decline the wonderful offer of Lemon Drizzle Cake and Scones that smelled divine, (I'm still trying to lose the weight I had put on over Christmas), that our wonderful hostess Moya had made, but I did accept a cup of tea, and soon, we were chatting and giggling all over again! I had a wonderful evening, thank you ladies!
This is what I had partially 'cobbled together', having not been for a while, I couldn't think what to take, so I grabbed some card bases, layering panels and some die cuts, glue, and scissors. I finished it off today with some gold foil accents, a sentiment and a few sequins. Oh, yes, and a spritz of gold shimmer. This is the card I ended up with. Not my best work, but I will be better prepared next week!
On a side note, I am not happy with how my photographs come out now that I have had to move my light box, so I will be experimenting with different placements over the next few weeks, so please bear with me, and normal service will be resumed ASAP . . . I hope!
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know! If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
