I had a lovely day in Lingfield yesterday at the Craft Barn. I attended  a class tutored by Helen Chilton, we were using Oxford Impressions stamps and bleach techniques, with a bit of embossing thrown in, to make cards for men.
I did take my camera but forgot to take the memory card so I've no photos of the day, Helen took some which hopefully will be on her blog soon.
These are the cards I made, and an envelope to store them in. I attended the class thinking I'd probably never use the bleach technique again, but came away completely converted!
Thank you Helen for another great class and to the other ladies on the course who made it such a pleasure, and the lovely Craft Barn staff.
We went for lunch at Joyce's with Best Wishes which I can recommend, any place where you can have handmade chocolates for lunch can't be a bad place, friendly staff too...
I hope you've all had a great weekend, what did you get up to?

Thanks for visiting
