Rockin my world Friday

Hello Rockers and Rockettes - Friday has flown by again so time to share the positives from this week that set me up for the weekend :0)

Huge thanks for all the lovely comments this week - it has been lovely to share so many projects from my weekend last week and also to share the variety of things I like to play with. Stamping is a passion now and I just love "making" things so its been fun to explore a little.

The week started off well with Stamping club last Friday where we continued playing with less is more. Here is a card I made for a friend - using masking and inks its so simple I love it! Cards don't have to be complicated and thins is a wonderful technique if you have little time but still want a home made card.

On Saturday it was time to go to Angelas and craft with her and the lovely Anne. It was a wonderful weekend brought about by the internet and blogging - so huge thanks Mr Blogger for allowing me this wonderful experience of meeting with new friends and enriching my life. Angela came on the Lovin' ink craft retreat in march with her wonderful daughter Belle. Retreats really are a place to meet and make the most wonderful people.
Here is a simple card I made last weekend for a colleague at work who is getting married. yesterday I made 20 favour boxes as her wedding gift and another colleague is filling them with cupcakes!
Simple but there again the wedding is - simple and elegant hosted in a Scottish castle on the 18th August - wishing you all the best Sal and Rushie xx

Monday saw me back at work and one of my colleagues has been off sick for a while - it was lovely to give her a hug - she was greeted with flowers and love from us all - we missed her so.

Tuesday the week caught up with me and I was sooooo tired having worked the early shift of 7-3 i collapsed into bed early having achieved very little!

Wednesday I had a class at home. 6 Ladies came to learn how to use the simple brushing technique on their cards here is the first card we made.

and here is the second.

It seemed to go well so i hope they enjoyed it!

and yesterday i made favour boxes. :0) and had a lovely afternoon with a crafting buddy checking out the local shop and chinwagging over coffee.

As always I am very lucky to have family and friends around me who are so loving and thoughtful and this is my biggest "thankful" every week but is all so true.

So thats my week - Lots to be happy about hope your week was too x Stop by The Celtic House and find more folks beginning the weekend with lots to be grateful for x
