  7. Love all the cards I envy all those attending your workshops they are very lucky people xx

  8. Morning Julia, oh what a delight todays blog is, to see all your really lovely creations, I am loving the first card which is the giveaway, so someone is going to be a very lucky person, enjoy it. Then to see all the creations from your workshops, I would so love to attend one but it is not to be as I am disabled and cannot get to them so seeing the pictures will have to suffice. Will you ever do tutorials or videos on these, after the events of course as I would love to have a go at making them.

    Enjoy Friday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
