Card Marathon

Hi there guys I hope you are all well x Thank you so much for my WOYWW comments I am trying to get around to you, so I apologise if I haven't yet but I will soon. Anyway on to other things. I have had the BEST day ever. Julia from WOYWW and Ally are 2 scrap ladies and today was their card marathon. It was based here in Tidworth in the community centre which was perfect as just down the hill from me :-) I went with Kelly from Caesar Crafts and we had the most amazing time. I learnt so many new things - alcohol inks, nesties, glimmer mists, how to tie a bow lol. There were 34 cards (I think) to complete and I managed 22. I have bought some more home to finish too. I have to say that maybe I would of completed them all if I hadn't spent most of my time eating cake!!!!!! Oh and the food was outstanding. Lunch lady Jan who if you have read Julia's blog you would have heard about already, spent the whole day slaving in the kitchen so we could have cakes, drinks etc when we wanted them. Lunch was brill and I was stuffed afterwards so I only had one slice of cake for pudding........... One pic with flash on and one off - sorry about bad piccies. There was talk about them having a summer marathon too so if you are close by I urge you to sign up as it's a great day. I have had the most amazing time spending the day crafting side by side with my best friend making some fabulous cards. Thank you so much Julia and Ally you worked so hard for today and it was very much appreciated/ Take care Laura xx
