Monday...already! Canvas canvas....

Hello friends
Yesterday saw the very first class in my studio/shop, homemade chocolate cake was definitely order
of the you think I overdid the buttercream just a little! 
 Six lovely ladies joined me in making a Spellbinders Valentine canvas, 
here are three (the others hadn't quite finished...)
We certainly stuck with the 'love' theme and everyone did a superb job.
Talking of canvas - Jennie from the Artistic Stamper is going to be holding a class at my studio
creating a 8 x 8 canvas featuring inks, stamps and Spellbinders.
Here is a sneak peek....
more canvas images here.
The class is taking place on Sunday, 3 March 10am to 1pm and the cost is £22.50.
Please email me to book, it is now possible for me to take debit/credit card bookings 
over the telephone....(quick I had better read the machine manual!)

Thanks you to all my ladies for making my first class such a brilliant one.
Apologies to Sally ...I was getting used to the new till and nearly bankrupted her!
New till, card machines ...I'm on a learning curve for sure - good job I stick to craft mostly.
Take care friends - I'm back tomorrow.
