I have yet to confirm the date for my Memory Album workshop as the operation was postponed till Jan.  I have set the 20th of Jan as a guide but may have to change.  I will post as soon as I know for sure.  Happy New Year to you all and look forward to crafting with you soon again.

Hi, at last I have finally uploaded some pics from my workshop in Tullow last Sunday.  We had a great day and the 16 ladies there were very pleased with their cards.  We didn't get to finish all 7 and the feeback was very good but the ladies felt 7 was too much and yes I have to agree but I knew we wouldn't get 7 done.  Thje objest of this workshop was to explore the use of the grapfic 45 and prima papers. My next workshop is on Sun the 9th Dec same venue and we will prob do a special memory album just for a change from cards and this would make a lovely christmas gift for a special person.

My felt piece.  I sold this piece last week and I was sorry to part with it The lady who bought it wanted it for a jacket that needed a lift. .  I created this with needle felting and I used lots of different textures.  I am working on other pieces and really like felting

Oh I'm back.  This is a card I made for a lady who didn't really know what she wanted.  I used my new spellbinders grande dies and they work a treat. And of course a Joanna Sheene from boutique image I just love that c d.

Well I never thought I'd see the day when a yella belly would be dressing teddies in the KK colours.  Anyway they turned out really well and sold a good few.  Hope you like the KK teddies ( hope Galway wins)

I am not dead.  Wanted to do something nice and girly again. Heres a card I used the martha Steward around the corner punch.  I have started doing two markets at weekends and I love it.  I'm trying to keep it crafty and hoping to introduce kids to crafts again.  I will upload my little bits later.  Hit me please.  Pádraigín

Up up and away.  This card we made in my class.  I had some Tim Holtz wax paper and I embossed the image of a hot air balloon and stitched on the embelishments with twine the girls loved it especially as its a mans card,  men not easy to make cards for.
You know me I love the bit of romance.  This is a very simple card I cut our all the elements on my brilliant cricuit.  Havn't found anyone for it yet.

Strolling through Paris
I love this card, reminds me of Paris.  The background was created by putting little blobs of wet glue all over background white card and used a cocktail stick to make the glue into little circles.  Then I used mustard seed spiced marmalade and antique linen distressing to get the desired effect,  I just added a few embellishments and I was happy enought with the finished card.  Would like a few comments.
