I had so much fun with this sketch and these new Grace Taylor papers....love love love the patterns on these...and they're from Big W I tell you...all together in a huge pack for about $10....woohoo!! They are soooooo gorgeous. That's pretty much all I used on this card....with some tea dyed lace, a die cut tag, my new loop edge border punch from Martha (the obsession continues!) and a ribbon scrap.  

Oh before I go, check this out.....it's my Chrissy pressie from DH coming to me this week from Shop and Crop....look at that great discount!!...can't wait to get it on the wall and fill it up.....

Weekend Workshop

Hey there...hope you're having a happy hump day.

I've managed to get some more Christmas shopping done and have also prepared a hostess gift and lucky door prize for a workshop this weekend.

The group of crafting ladies that originally formed when I was a SU! demo want to continue our crafting get-togethers so we have one this Saturday. I have played with a range of Christmas goodies to make some gift tags which I will bundle up for the hostess and door prize winner.....here they are all laid out together....

....how grateful am I that my Mum saved all this beautiful ribbon of all shapes and sizes for me...cause that's where I found 2 long lengths of this scrummy red ribbon....just perfect.

Okay, I'm off to get some dinner happening.....I'll be back early in the morn to share my news....can't wait til it's not a secret anymore:))
