Christmas Card Evening Class 22/11/07

I thought you would all like to see the cards that we made last night on my Christmas evening class.
The snowman fold over card is made using doodlebug papers & glitters, Syntego embellishments, Hippy Chick cuttlebug Alphabet & mock stitching.
The Santa card is a zig zag card using the new doodlebug Christmas papers and doodlebug Christmas stamps.
We had a really good evening, everyone brought goodies and we happily munched our way through two cards. I even sang bits of the odd Christmas song, I wasn't asked for an encore???? I wonder why!
Thank you to all the ladies that made it an enjoyable evening and I will see you all soon.

Thank you all for the lovely emails & cards you have sent thanking us. We raised £247.20 for St. Catherines Hospice - Thank You. After such demand we are planning the next one and will let everyone know as soon as it is finalized!

Crafts U Loves Shops 1st Birthday!

I can't believe a year has passed and we have had our Shop's 1st Birthday! With Helen, Caz & Jackie doing Demo's we had a packed shop. Everyone got a goodie bag and a free stamp designed by us. Paula (one of the owners) inherited a crafting friends craft stash when she sadly passed away with skull cancer. Paula decided to raise money for St Catherines Hospice by hosting an Auction at the shop with some new & used stamps, inks & Quickutz Alphabets. We manged to raise over £300 for the Charity which we will continue to support in future events.
Thanks for everyones support over the past years and we look forward to seeing again in the future.
