Last Coffee and Card

Hello there and Happy Saturday to you! This week I ran my last Coffee and Card event at the Mill Kitchen. I will be running the same event from my own studio with effect from Tuesday 1st March. I have loved being at the Mill Kitchen every Tuesday, a fab place for a coffee and food but it's time for pastures new and we were outgrowing our space there.

Today I am sharing the card we made this week at Coffee and Card. Have to say the ladies have never been as quiet, lots of colouring and concentrating going on! 
I used the Blender Pen and Shimmery White card stock for this card and of course the background is Pool Party swooshed all over some Watercolour paper with an Aquabrush. I'd like to thank all my ladies who have come to the Mill Kitchen week in week out to craft with me. I'm looking forward to sharing my new space with you all.
So whilst I was making the above card I also needed to make an extra one for my lovely friend Di who had her birthday on Monday. I made Di's card a little bit fancier by adding some Crumb Cake Stitched Satin ribbon and I actually watercolored this one to see the difference with the Blender Pens.
I must say I am really loving these Pool Party backgrounds, look out for another one coming soon from this weeks Tuesday Club.
And here are both cards side by side - Blender Pens on the left and Aquabrush on the right.

Birthday Blooms again!

Phew it's Friday and today is a Mollie day and my boys break up from school for a week today too!
Today I am sharing a card that I half made whilst at a class with my ladies. I don't normally craft at classes, I spend most of my time instructing, talking, distracting, serving drinks, washing up and clearing up! However, at my Technique Class in January things were slower paced and I demonstrated to my ladies how to watercolour this flower. I also showed them the background technique with the inks and an aqua brush so I basically had half a card made which I finished at home a couple of days later!
I must say I really like this card, apart from the sentiment is on a slight angle, yes it happens to me too! My ladies pull my leg about using Crumb Cake card all the time, they think I have had a discounted job lot, which of course I haven't, I just love how it matches a lot of the other colours. 
I gave the flower on the card the Wink of Stella treatment, you should be able to see the sparkle on the photo below!
Right that's it from me for this morning! Better get myself sorted before my little friend arrives! Could be interesting today as she has been potty training! Yikes!
See you tomorrow
