Jo Firth Young comes to Carnforth!!!

Hello there my lovelies - well it was a rare treat on Saturday for me when the lovely Jo Firth Young headed north and led a workshop at Carnforth Station visitors centre ... hosted by Rowan Tree Crafts. Sharon is the main lady there and is really lovely - if ever you get the chance to visit the shop - its really friendly and stocked with loadsa goodies!!!

Anyway Jo is a really lovely lady - I have so many sets of her stamps but have never met her! It was just lovely and her project was fabulous - here's her make ...

No automatic alt text available.

it used two of her new sets of stamps plus some an older set and three different stencils.

Here's a smiley picture of me and Jo...

I really enjoyed meeting Chris and hope to meet again.

Now to my make ...

Here's the whole thing ....

the left hand side ...

the centre - i used one of the new Alison Bomber stamps here. They had arrived into my hot little hands on Friday and I was desperate to ink them up!!!

and this is the right hand side.

To be fair to Jo I won't go into details ...but lots of fun was definitely had!!!

Have a great Monday - we have a busy day. The coffee pot ladies are coming this morning and its the girls sports day in the afternoon. In the evening Lucy is going by Limosine to her school leavers do! I don't know - it seems a bit crackers but she is super happy so has to be worth it!

Big hugs

  11. Wow - just as I'd imagined - the flower quotes combined with lots of JOFY florals - and directly from a JOFY workshop too! I love your triptych panel, and I'm honoured that my words made it on to such a special creation (well, Nathaniel's words, but you know what I mean!).
