"Hello!" to all the ladies (and gentlemen!) who came along and I hope that you're using the things you bought and not just looking at them! Below is just one of the cards which I made on the day. As you can see, it features the little penguins again, but I just wanted to share the idea of making a tall slider card with you. This card stands up nice and high, but it folds absolutely flat and will fit inside a DL envelope with no trouble.
Notice the lovely 3D snowflake from K&Co...these have been so popular, so if you see any on the shelves - grab them as they are like gold
We survived the drive to and from Holmfirth...it is a truly scary road with impossibly sharp corners, inclines and no barriers beside the sheer drops....lovely!!!
Today we went to Redesmere again, but this time were armed with loads of stale bread. The lake was a sheet of ice apart from the edges where most of the birds were congregating to be fed. The man who runs the hot food stand said that it was only the second time in four years that the water
has frozen. The larger birds looked very comical as they skated across the surface, but we did feel sorry for them - their toes must have been painfully cold! I tried to get a good picture of the Gulls who were very impressive with their mid flight bread catching skills. They are much too fast for a digital camera, though I liked the way this one had the vapour trails from the planes in the background! Redesemere is in Siddington which is a few miles from Alderley Edge, so if you live anywhere within reach it is well worth a visit.
It is now time for another cosy evening! I shall be adding details of the Making Cards workshops after I complete this post and will be putting the Topaz workshops schedule on as soon as they are confirmed. Dawn and her team are still very busy moving everything from the Mill to the studio, so it may take a day or two longer to get the details.
I hope that you have all had a great weekend with time to craft, relax and enjoy good company somewhere in the mix! Till next time, Lindsay
