Christmas Greetings, Class News and Haircut!

Hello friends,
A bit of a long blog post today...
Here comes a Christmas card!
Again this one is featured in 'Make Christmas Cards', I did quite a few for that magazine!
The magazine comes with these papers and some die cuts - the sentiment and tag is included.
I added an Eyelet Circle and Layered Poinsettias - in lovely traditional red.
Again a simply constructed card - perfect for batch making. 
Shame I'm not heeding my own advice here! 

Other news:

Christmas goodies are arriving at the crafty studio ready for classes....
I thought for some of my classes,  it would be a nice treat for each person to have a
paper stack of papers to use and then any leftovers are useful to take home,
(plus I love shopping and get carried away when ordering papers!)
For the Christmas Plaque class on 24 November we are using Echo Park - Very Merry Christmas
(there is one place left on this class).

For the Festive Full Day class on Sunday 9 December I've chosen Simple Stories - Handmade Holidays -
it is a 12 x 12 paper stack full of 12 sheets of patterned paper, 2 sticker sheets,
photo overlays and more, (there are two places left on this class).

Due to popularity of the Advent Frame class, I am running it again on Sunday 4 November.
Here are advent frames in production.
And, in case your curious and booked on the Christmas Tag classes we are using the beautiful
 Authentique - Festive paper stacks.

Now to the Bella haircut ....
Yet again I have to do a double take to check it is Bella!
So quite a lot of news today - as always any questions or if you would like to book a class,
please feel free to email me:
Have a lovely day dear friends.

Bella has been transformed from the 'tousled' look to the 'coiffured' look, sleek and absolutely gorgeous. 'Bella'of the Ball.

Love green and red together - they are sooooo nice Christine. I am drooling over those papers they look wonderful.

Now to the beautiful Bella - she looked so cute with the twine in her hair keeping her 'fringe' out of her eyes! Now though she looks chic and elegant. Simply gorgeous.

Hugs Sue Pxxx
