First time at NEC

Lilian and I decided to give the SECC a miss this October and go to the NEC instead.
It was great. It took us all day to get round the many stalls.
We took part in the Matthew Palmer watercolour class. I was very pleased with the result.
The next day we spent doing several workshops including a sunset pastel snow scene class with Jeremy Ford. This picture looked unachievable when we started but the result was fantastic. I have bought mounts and frames so I can put them on my wall.
We didn't buy much this trip as we were hand luggage only on the flights we booked. Quite a good strategy to keep pennies in our purses.

Mr Tumble Spotty bag.....

I made a Mr.Tumble spotty bag to use in my class at school.....
I was really pleased with the result.  I got an order for another one from another staff member when I took it in!!

Christmas cards....

These are  the cards I have made for some upcoming christmas sales and craft classes.
Some of the cards were made using Digistampboutique downloads.  I used the samples on the site as they were quick and simple.  I also found some ideas for using my Cricut cartridges.  I made about 10 of each of these cards.
