A Crafty Weekend!

On Friday morning six of us set off to Cheshire for a crafty weekend at Crab Apple Crafts in Frodsham.We did a card class in the afternoon taught by Debi using Amuse Artstamps which are really sweet rubber stamps.We got to make 6 cute little cards,we even made some male cards which was good as I don't really do men's cards.It was a really good afternoon, Debi was lovely and her cards she'd designed for the class were fab. Here are the cards we made.                   

After the class we went to our hotel,we stopped at the Holiday Inn,Runcorn where there was a spa,so we dropped our bags in our rooms and headed straight to the jacuzzi and steam room.I've got to tell you though one of us,not naming names, ended up in the mens changing rooms because they hadn't got their glasses on and didn't realise until a man said something to her.Needless to say we didn't let her forget it all weekend.We chilled for an hour in the spa and then got ready for dinner.What bliss not having to worry about getting dinner and tidying up after everyone.

After a late night we all went to bed only to be woke up by the fire alarms at 4.30am,we were not happy to have to get up at that time and wait on the carpark for 30 minutes but we did find the funny side later.       

I know I look like Del Boy with my zebra print dressing gown but I didn't expect the whole of the hotel to see it.
Next morning we headed back to Crab Apple Tree Crafts for their monthly crop.What a lovely bunch of ladies who I'd like to thank for making us feel so welcome,we had a great laugh with them and hope to see them all again sometime soon.I managed to get three LO's finished which I was pleased with because we were all very tired and didn't expect to do much.  

I'd like to thank Rosemary,Nige and everybody else that we met over the weekend,everybody was so friendly and welcoming.We will be back!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
