This was the view looking our front door earlier this afternoon..xxx
Anyway, back to January's classes.... I thought I would give a little sneak of a teeny bit of both of them...so here they are.
So, now I need to start on Febs pages.....talk about wishing the year away LOL!
I am really not sure where this year has gone, its really flown by hasn't it! maybe its true what they say about time passing faster as you get older?!?!**!!
The weather is still atricious today, although to be fair the wind does seem to have settled down a bit now, but we are still experiencing large downfalls of the wet stuff. Hope it clears up though as I am on holiday this week...alas not going away anywhere, but just to get 3 and a half hours of extra sleep each morning by getting up at 7am will be fabulous, I have NO intention of letting go of the quilt before that.
Have a smashing Sunday...xxx

So tonight we are all off to see this!
I love Jim Carrey, always have done and I hope this film is as good as his others.
I think there is something very sexy and appealing about men that can make me laugh and each film of his ( apart from the Number 23 and The Trueman show) have had me roaring. The one that sticks in my mind most and still makes me die laughing is the one from Ace Ventura....in the rhino outfit ( do not watch if easily offended) ...I ache from laughing at this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7LrMoLba0c
I also love The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.
So lets hope tonight is not a let down.

Yesterday we had our monthly crop at Jills ( Cardinal Colours) and as always it was a fabulous day out with some very lovely company. Most of us were cardmaking yesterday and I was lucky enough to have a chance to try out some Promarkers and some Copics ( thank you so much Lynn and Linda, you are gems.) I have to say I got on better with the Promarkers, although the stunning array of colours that Linda had in her huuuuuge set of Copics had me feeling like a kid in a candy shop!
Here is a card I made yesterday using Lynn's Promarkers and a lovely Tilda image that Karen very kindly gave me in a huge envelope filled with stamped images ( thank you so much Karen, you are so kind).
I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and am looking forwards to finding some time this week to make some more.
We were celebrating Linda's birthday this month and Lynn bought along a beautiful display of yummy cupcakes that she had made and put on display in a gorgeous cake stand.
I made a Raspberryoffee Pie, its the exact same recipe as a Bannoffee but you substitute with Raspberries instead.
One tip I would give, if you decide to try it yourself, is to use frozen rasps, its so much harder trying to spread caramel and then the cream over them if they are fresh and soggy, the frozen ones are still full of flavour and sit nicely behaving themselves whilst you do the rest of the pie. I also use the Nestle ready to pour Caramel, its soooo much easier than faffing about boiling a tin of condensed milk for goodness knows how long. T o finish the pie off after topping it with whipped up double cream, I crumble up a Cadburys Flake and crumble across the top. Yummy!

Its crop day today and I am soooo looking forwards to it! A whole day of playing with paper and catching up with some very special friends, not to mention sitting in a purpose built studio and being surrounded by delicious stash in a rainbow of colours! What more could a girl want?
Hope you have a great weekend too...xxx

I love the cheeky little Magnolia Tilda Snowman, he is sooo cute and I can see him appearing on several cards for Christmas in an array of colours this year.
The other card is just a blank at the moment, not sure what occasion it will be for, but both cards are very sparkly with lots of Stickles on.
After I finished the cards I wanted to make some jewellery and was totally inspired by the cards and the colouring in them. I made 2 more Bag Charms( based on the design of the Blue and White one from the other week) with some of the new beads I bought a couple of weeks ago and also made a silver and lime nugget bracelet with a toggle clasp on it, so quite a productive day really.
I also got all the kits sorted and packed for this weeks classes at Jills ( Cardinal Colours).....I really think I may *need* to get me some more of those delicious E-Line Prima crystals and Pearls tomorrow or thursday night whilst I am there....well it would be rude not to wouldn't it???? Right, I am off to do the washing up....and maybe make something else beady.....
