First Card! :P x

Hello Everyone, 

So I've had a busy week and have finally made my first card (two actually). :) I was very excited on
Thursday morning when I took the bus back home to go to a card making lesson there. Cloud Nine is a fantastic little craft shop and I am very grateful to Clare the owner for her patience with me. It was fantastic, I had so much fun, the ladies that were there to make cards were so welcoming. I now have two beautiful cards to show for it, as you can see. :P The session was called 'Springtime in Paris' and 'Stamping in Paris'. I think I got them to photograph reasonably well too. :) Which I'm really chuffed with. :)

After the lesson I had lots of fun picking up stamps I liked from the shop, some ink (essential obviously), some bleed proof paper even though I don't have any markers to colour with yet, and a few other essential bits.  I spent almost three hours in the shop and came away very happy if a little tired from getting so excited. lol. I spent the night with my family and they brought me back today, we have a wander round the city centre and went into the craft shops that were open. I picked up a few more things that I hadn't picked up from Cloud Nine, like a cutting mat, dies for my Big Shot, and other odds and ends.  I'm going to be really good though and not make anything until my actual birthday. Which is only just less than a month away now. :P As I just mentioned I brought dies for my Big Shot which will be coming my way on my birthday, only a almost three weeks til I get it. lol. :) I have enjoyed myself so much and it's just so much fun, as well as satisfying to see the end result. :)  

Well I'm going to sign off because its been a long few days and I have a fun filled weekend ahead, so I need to get some rest. I have afternoon tea at the vintage cafe tomorrow. Looking forward to it immensely. I get to have a snoop round the shop too while I'm there. :) 

Bye for now.

P.s. I will try and find a link for the shop or Claire's blog if I can.

(Edit: Links now up. :))
