  1. Hi Yvonne, thank you for such a lovely day yesterday. I couldn't believe the time yesterday evening when I sat into the car, it was so late. Please say thank you to your wonderful persevering husband and son who put up with such a bunch of noisy women for the whole day practically. The cards are fabulous, the fun was great and the lunch was absolutely delicious. It was lovely to meet old and new friends too. We certainly had value for our money. Look forward to crafting with you again real soon. Mary

  2. Thanks Mary for feedback, I always appreciate every comment, and do my best to answer everyone, we had a lovely day, there was lots of new techniques, so lots of concentration needed, I think everyone of us was exhausted at the end of the day,but happy.
    see you soon

  3. Hi Yvonne. Thanks a million for another fantastic day. We learned so much from you. The dresses are simply amazing and the teddy outfits show more of your talent. I just love the cards we made. Pity Fintan's birthday is just over.... now who will I give the sexy french card to?? We had a great day, being treated to another beautiful dinner. Thank God Michele didn't eat ALL the pear and almond cake this time!! The girls who come on the 26th are in for a real treat! Enjoy!
