his weekend was spent playing with my 3 year old son in the sandpit, playing trains, going for walks with the dog and cat, watching a new Thomas The Tank movie for the 6th time straight, reading stories and doing numerous trips to town with more entries into the local show. My husband and daughter had gone down to Melbourne and left the two of us to our own devices, so somewhere in amongst everything I still managed to get some cards done for the World Wide Card Making Weekend over at LSBS. Still on a bit of a learning curve with card making but getting the hang of these little pieces of art. Everyone else makes it look so easy but I find it quite a challenge getting everything to fit and be well-balanced on such a small canvas! Hopefully LSBS will add a few more card making weekends into their calendar 'cause it was a really great weekend and the gallery was plenty full by the Monday.

Miss Helen (LSBS DT member and card maker extraordinaire) set three challenges: 1) Card Sketch Layout (which I made using Kaisercraft Tudor range of papers, BasicGrey Rubons and Pearls) 2) Make a set of Christmas Cards (Products Used: HeidiGrace Christmas Paper and Embellishments, Kaisercraft Rubons).  3) Set of three birthday cards using the same theme or colour scheme (Products used: The Paper Loft 'SlugBug' Paper Range.)

Benjamin and I had a wonderful weekend 'bonding' and I managed to have a touch of 'creative-me' time. Very happy indeed!

From farm to you...
