A little treat.....


Today is the long awaited workshop at Craftwork Cards. Kath and I have been die cutting leaves, butterflies and clouds in their hundreds. I have discovered that excess use of the Big Shot is good for the upper arms, but very bad for the old joints. So I have dragged it all onto the train, and here I am, with butterflies in my case and a few in my stomach!

It's always a bit of a downer to hear about other people having fun when you are not one of 'the gang', so to soften the blow and to keep you going until I get home on Sunday, here is a little giveaway for one of you. A brand new pack of the brand new Craftwork Cards Jacob papers - you get 36 sheets of 8 x 8 paper, and I am adding four sheets of the matching paper bows, all ready for you to decorate your cards. Just leave your name under this post, I will draw a winner on Thursday, and as always, I will mail to anywhere in the world. Good luck (and wish me luck too, Kath is a veteran of workshops, it's a bit of a step into the unknown for me!

  57. Hi Enfys, Believe it or not, but I have been following your Blog for quite a few years and I have never left a comment. Shame on me really. I just want to say I love everything you do and I truly mean that! I receive an email whenever you make a Blog Post, but I have never actually clicked over to your Blog to leave a comment on it. I have even voted for you when you were trying out for Design Team Members with different companies. Your stories are always so full of fun and laughter and love. So I finally decided today to leave you a post and hope to do it more often from now on. I am sure that you will be great at your Work Shop!! Don't fret your talent is endless.

    Take care,
    Diane
