Hi Everyone
Only a few more days to go for
My First Christmas Workshop of 2012
In Kinsealy, Malahide, Dublin,
On Saturday the 6th of October.
We still have a few places available,
Full details on the Workshop page HERE
This workshop is open to anyone interested in Card making
and everyone is very welcome.

I don't show full images of the cards we are making on the day, until after the workshop,
because I freely share my designs on my blog. And don't mind people copying the ideas,
So here's 2 link to last years Christmas cards

I have added photo snippets further down the page.

This Workshop is suitable for beginners to advanced levels
as I work in 2 sections, allowing the more advanced crafter's time to chat while they craft, allowing me more time to give hands on help to the beginners.
This is a full day workshop with 4 classes back to back.
Time 10.00 to 5.30

I've everything ready, and just need to make a few Tea bracks, as there isn't a mince pie to be got anywhere,
Please phone me if you are interested in coming along 
on 01 2010117.

Hi Everyone
I have updated the workshop page
with details for my Christmas Workshop in Kilkenny
and some details for the Christmas Workshop in Dungarvan 
in the right hand column.

I'm having a mad moment
Got up this morning spent 2 hours cleaning, Chicken in the oven,
just phoned Nancy to see what time she's coming for lunch, 
and it's tomorrow,
I was convinced it was Thursday. 
so I have a whole day extra this week
My crafty mind needs a rest,
Back to packing for me,
It's not my day off till tomorrow
I blame the Rain.

Card Art Kilcoole
My First C5 insert Cd 
is ready for dispatch,
Spent last night working on it, as there was nothing on TV,
I have covered most occasions which are listed on the post below.
and have a instruction page to help you, once you open it up.
please do not copy or share the Cd,

I hope to do a Mini Demo on the Cd in Kinsealy
so you can see how easy it is to use.

I will work on the Christmas one next week, 
and let you know how I get on.
You can email me HERE to order a copy.
thanks for all the interest

Card Art Insert CD
I was thinking of putting together a CD of Inserts
with a selection of occasions in C5 Landscape and Portrait
New Baby Boy/ Girl
Christening Boy/Girl
Birthday Male/ Female
Thinking of you
Thank you
Get Well Soon
New Home
and Sympathy

No 2 will be Christmas
with a selection of verses and images

What do you think?
Is it worth my while designing a easy to use Cd that opens in windows , that you can easily change the wording to personalise the inserts, and change the image if you need to,
 it will come with a instruction page, telling you how to change things.
Would love Feed back on this one
thanks Yvonne xx
