Hothorpe Hall

 Hothorpe Hall is a wonderful venue.  Why not join us next year: only £260 for a single room, all meals and two and a half days of crafting with all materials supplied.

This year we decided to include a Christmas card.  

I have used a Tonic die and lots of glitter.

Bee Crafty

An idea from Bee Crafty....certainly different

Back from a great weekend at Hothorpe.  Everyone seemed to have a good time and made lots of cards which Ginny, Cindy and I had designed.  I'll post some later this week.

More sponging

Unfortunately, my computer has been down for a week and it was all my fault!!!  I am really not technical. However, I had time to make one or two cards.

Really like this card; sponged background and coloured with watercolour pencils.

Have a great week.

Hope you are all having a lovely Easter break.  I have two workshops this week and this is one of the cards I have prepared.

Second go!

Have tried a much stronger pencil but the photo doesn't show the depth of colour, especially on the two supporting flowers.  Need to keep practising!



I am really trying to come up with different backgrounds.

Sponged background, but flowers not strong enough.

Have a wonderful Easter and go easy on all that chocolate!!!!  Like me!!!!

This card has an unusual background.

Cajun Craze ink added from an acrylic block overprinted with white craft ink.
