  1. Thanks to all for another fantastic day in Carlow, for the warm welcome, lovely coffee, sandwiches and home baked goodies! As usual, Yvonne surpassed herself with beautiful detail on her cards! Thanks to Sandra for running the show too! Congratulations to Margaret on her new look! Wishing all the best to Patricia in her quest :) I'll keep my eyes peeled!

  2. Thanks Aileen, glad you got home safe and sound, long day,
    but really enjoyed it,

  3. Yvonne, I would like to echo the sentiments of Aileen. I had a lovely day at New Oak today so thanks very much to you for sharing your great ideas with the rest of us. Shirley

  4. thank very much for the kind remarks girls ye are so kind we all had a lovely day today thanks very much Yvonne cards were fab as usual and thanks to Margaret for all her help see ye soon

  5. A special text has just arrived from a hot, windy Egypt where Aiveen would like to wish all of us a very happy St. Patrick's Day from her camel ride!!

  6. The cards look fabulous Yvonne. Looks like you had a great day.Sorry I wasn't able to be there. Looking forward to seeing you in Kilkenny. Kay XX

  7. A technical question please: when you say the first line of the Crafters Companion are you talking about the base or lid side??

  8. Hi Aileen,for the large 21cm card, cut 1 sheet 21cm Sq and the 2nd sheet 21cm by 23cm and score on the first line on the front of the board which is the card scoring side of the board, there is no measurements written next to this line.this gives you a 2cm fold, making the card when stuck together 21cm Sq, and you need a 22cm Sq envelope for this card, which I have extra of if you need them.
    if you need more help come back to me.

  9. Thanks Shirley Kathleen and Kay for comments, looking forward to Kilkenny,
    see some of you next Sunday here in my house,
    Happy St Patricks day to you all especially Aiveen in Egypt, hope the camel doesn't spit at you,


Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate, you taking the time to leave one. and will do my best to answer every one.
