It was a lovely day, and we spent the whole time chatting about crafts, eating cakes and drinking tea, we ended up in the garden as the weather was kind to us.
Then Connie gave us a demo on needle felting, and now we're all itching to have a go.lol
Thanks for a day to remember Connie.

For the second one "Curiosity" I printed the black cats face back ground on card stock, the silver cat is sat on some recycled packaging on which I added the blades of grass with the green glitter pen, the 9 and the count down 8-1 depict the cats nine lives (curiosity killed the cat!) I printed and cut the no 9 out of card, added Anita's 3 D clear gloss to the eyes of the background cat and to the no nine, and edged the card with silver embossing.
The third one "Cats love the sun" the background is from a recycled junk mail envelope (I love recycling lol) the letters are alternately, stamped on the background and stamped onto card and then stuck in place, I chalked the ones cut out, but it doesn't show on the photo, The sun and the edges of the card I silver embossed added the gem to depict "Love" then put Anita's 3D clear gloss all over but around the gem and while it was still wet pressed the cat into it.

Now thanks to my daughter in law Shell and, my grandson Richard and one new hard drive, more memory and a lot of tweeking, it seems to be working perfectly and much better than ever before (fingers crossed).
Sue and her Hubby Frank (aka Frankiesue) came to stay at a nearby hotel last weekend , so that they could spend some time with Angy and her family and myself.
Would't you just know, that I had to go and get a nasty tummy bug, so was unable to join them at the meal out on Sunday.
Feeling a bit better on Monday I enjoyed the day out to a local beauty spot with them, a quaint olde worlde town called Bridgenorth. The weather was a disappointment though, with gale force winds and it threatened rain, which we were able to avoid by having a very nice meal in a fish and chip restaurant there. Despite the weather we all had an enjoyable day together and Sue and Frank have promised to come again soon.
I forgot my friend Connie's advice to strap my new camara around my neck LOL, and forgot to take it with me, but Sue took some photos for us to remember the occasion, and if she lets me have one or two , I will put them on my blog at a later date.
This picture I got from Google again. It seems that I will never learn LOL.
