Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.
Yesterday John took Hazel and I up to Aberdeen to visit " The Papeterie". Aberdeen was part of John`s Area when he was working so he knew exactly where it was. He was taking us up so we would know exactly where to go when we went to see Sue Wilson doing her Demo Day there in July.
A Huge place with lots and lots of fantastic space for classes and workshops. Great wide open shopping space with lots of "stuff" at reasonable prices and two lovely ladies to welcome and chat to us. The place was not busy when we arrived so we had lots of time to chat to the ladies. They were excited and looking forward to this coming weekend when Nicky Hall from Polkadoodles is there doing Demos and Classes.
We told the ladies why we had come up, they were saying that they were also excited and looking forward to Sue coming. They were getting rather concerned at the amount of people that will be coming that day and will the car park cope. It is an "open" day no bookings just come along and enjoy. Hazel and I are now having doubts about going. We feel that there will not be enough room to move or even get near to see what Sue is actually doing. We have talked about going the night before and staying at the Travel Lodge along the road, we will see.
Today`s card is a request from Hazel`s younger daughter Tammy. Tammy and her husband have a friend who LOVES "Highland Cows". Hazel has got the task of making a "Beer Cake" no! not a cake using Beer in the mixture..........................a cake made up on a Large Cake Board with a central box containing lots of Goodies surrounded by cans of Beer. They will be covered over with green paper/card cut to represent grass and some pebbles as the ground or a wall. Hazel has fantastic ideas for this type of thing, really looking forward to see what materialises. The cake is being topped with a Highland Cow so of course the request was "will you ask Auntie Pat to make a card with a Highland Cow on it"..............................oh! right where did I leave that "Magic Wand" again.
I knew right away where to get an image.......a Joanna Sheen CD I bought years ago and never really used, one of those that you just had to have.
So here is the card, gave it to Hazel yesterday and she was delighted, said Tammy would be as well.
Base card Kraft Card approx 5 x 7
Cream and green card for matting
The image is printed on canvas paper I got at Aldi some time ago a great buy must keep my eyes open to get some more
Computer generated sentiment as requested
I put some glossy accents on his nose just as a bit of fun
That`s it for today
