A fantastic weekend had by all who attended!!

Evening all

I have spent the weekend at a Craft Retreat in Prestatyn, organised by the lovely Patsi, who did a tremendous job organising the whole weekend. We all arrived on Friday, had a lovely tea and then the drinks flowed. Saturday we crafted all day, completing challenges and watching demos by Patsi, Shell and Nat, Sunday was the same as sat with demo's by Sally-Anne and Sharon. I took part in all of the challenges and made 6 cards, which is a first for me!!!!

I will be back later to upload the pics of the cards i made!!!

as promised here are the cards i made at the craft retreat minus one as i want to add something else to it, so will upload when complete, So here goes with the rest ..

This card was made following a sketch which was provided by Jen, but there was also some conditions, we had to follow some elements and the card made needed to be for a male.
I coloured the image which is a digi from Victoria Case with my new promarkers and then i
distressed the image, the papers were given to me by Sally-Ann so i don't know where they are from. The brads used were from my stash.

The challenge Sally-Ann gave us for this card was to make a shaped easel card but as a added extra we could only use 6 different items, hence the same image. Sally-Ann showed us a range of different shapes including a brilliant heart shaped card.

i used a Hangler and Strangler image which i coloured using my new promarkers and distressed with distress inks, the papers are My minds eye.. i just love this pack, ribbon and card candy from stash.


This my box card made following a demo by Shell, I'm very impressed with my creation i didn't think i would be able to make one myself but it wasn't as hard to make as i thought it would be,

i used a Martha Stewart punch, the papers were forever friends, i decoupaged the image, flowers and pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
hope you like my creations xx
