A LOVELY SUNNY DAY.....

Here in Yarm it has been a very lovely sunny day, the birds were singing on our dog walk this morning, and it felt very Springlike altogether. Some of the trees are also starting to bud.  The mud is at last beginning to dry up and we had a coffee and a chat to some friends in a very sunny spot in the park.  Hope we've seen the last of the horrible constant rain for a while and Spring is really on its way.

Last Sunday I had a trip to the NEC and 'Stitches' trade show.  So lots of lovely products, great demos, and lovely crafty people to chat with.  I went with Lesley (Chocolate Baroque), and we had a good mooch around and a catch up with old friends. It was fun!  Talking about new crafty products we have a few new goodies online now.  Check them out HERE if you fancy having a look, and maybe acquiring something new to decorate and personalise!

I have been sorting through some computer folders looking for images to show you this evening, so I have some makes to display that were made quite a while ago (and I have just rediscovered) as well as some more recent ones by the teamies.

I decorated an MDF tray with CI stamps and tissue papers....





Then I decorated some coasters to match....


(We sell the coasters - http://www.craftyindividuals.co.uk/search/coasters, and they make a great pressie once embellished)

I have a couple of makes by Helen now.....



The Mallards are from CI-297, and the clock workings from CI-305.
Helen also played with the two teds more recently- so sweet....




I have quite a lot of makes by Coco to show, but I will start with some great mixed media Valentine type cards that she made recently....




Check out the couple from CI-439, and the useful wordy background stamp CI-258.

Joanna has made these divine beauties.....




..... using stamps CI-415, CI-422, and the swirl die is looking lovely on the wedding card with lots of pretty white flowers as well.

Finally I have some makes old and new by lovely Sylvie....



---the first two featuring stamps by Alice Palace.
Followed by two prettily tasselled tags....



.... lots of CI stuff on board here including the owlets from CI-442 and the Flower Heads from CI-445.
Her most recent crafty make is one with the Two lovely Teds again plus doilies by Gio....


Lots more to come, and also a new challenge for March soon, although I might be a day or so late blogging that as I am away friend visiting this weekend ....... but do watch this space next week!!

Thanks for leaving your comments lovely folks - you are all stars!

Oh, you are very lucky to have sun and springlike weather Jean! Here in France it's still pouring of rain... The day today was just awful.
But I see cheerful creations on your blog post that make me happy, and it's just so good... Your own creations are very lovely! (remember I must decorate the coasters I have from the shop!). The other samples by teammies are so wonderful too, thank you!
Hugs, Coco xx
