More News From Me....

Between Christmas and New Year we spent a couple of days at the beautiful Coombe Abbey just outside Coventry.  Unfortunately we could not take full advantage of this impressive place as Paul was unwell.  However I did want to go and see Coventry Cathedral which I dtudied many years ago when I was at school.

The original catherdral was bombed in the blitz. The new one is attached and I love its modern design and architectural features.  I have photos and postcards to show you if you are interested.

Getting back to arts and crafts we now stock stamps by PAPERBAG STUDIO.

Suzi B used "newsprint house" on her very simplistic card.  It came out well stamped onto fabric.

STAMPENDOUS produced a very lovely lace effect stamp that Christine C has used on the following two items:-

Greeting Card:-

Book in a Box (which is another Woodware product).  The outer paper mache box is covered in background paper that has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The lacy stamp can be seen through the aperture which is surrounded by a MEMORY BOX die - so intricate but so beautiful.  The scissors are a MARIANNE DESIGN die.

Inside, Christine's usual attention to detail.....

We now have two dates pencilled in for "PLAYDAYS"

Saturday 19th January is just a general group get together - all are welcome!  Saturday 2nd February will be focused around art journalling.  Come and share tips and techniques especially if you are new to it.

Usual cost applies - £2 if you stay all day.  £1 for either the morning or afternoon session.

Hope to see you.  CAROL:)
