Uniko classes, re-stocks AND a card!


How did we get to Wednesday already?? My days are zooming by like nobodies business - LOL!  The beans are FULL on during their awake time, luckily they nap and sleep well, but I am struggling to keep on going during these times!! 

Anyway, today I have a mixed bag of a post with some news on the Uniko Classes some restocks coming next week and to make it a little sweeter I've made a card to share with you all too!

Uniko Classes 

I have updated the CLASSES page HERE which is located below the logo banner at the top of the blog. More dates will be added soon, including the date & info for the FULL Day crafting retreat in 2016.

I have 2 classes in October, the 2nd class being at the NEW venue close to the market town of Yarm - YAY! You can book your place on the NEW Class HERE on the website. 

Stamp Restocks

I have 4 stamp restocks due in next week (approx 6th October) which are...

Now, how about a card...

I had an unexpected 30 minutes this evening to myself whilst the beans went to the swings with Grandad. After seeing the new Freshly Made Sketch pop up on my Instagram earlier I reached for two of the restock sets to create my card, English Country Garden - Butterflies & Label Love - Thank you. I still have a TON of thank you cards to make & send!

Below is the FMS and you can find it HERE too...

With only having 30 minutes I kept it super CAS! I started out by stamping the large butterfly directly onto my white CS base & selectively coloured it with my Prisma Color pencils & used gamsol to blend the colouring. The smaller outline butterflies are stamped in Turquoise Gem & Pink Grapefruit VersaMagic and adhered to the card with DST just down the centres. The sentiment is from Label Love - Thank you & one I reach for often.

To finish it off I smothered the butterflies in Wink Of Stella, which you can just about see in the photo above! 

Ok, that's all from me today, I will be back this week with more to share! Until then, thank you for stopping by.
