Not much to say...

Morning all, not much to say today as things have been a bit quiet lately.
I have been to a couple of craft clubs, last weekend and the weekend before. I have been going to 'Eagle' (a club that originally started life as a  Mini Topaz Team) for several years now (about eight I think!!) and 'Craft and Chat' for about two or three years. They are a great way to meet like minded people and I have learnt so much from my fellow crafters. I really enjoy going as we get to do a project each month and we can then we can do whatever we want.
'Eagle' Craft Club is held in a small village on the outskirts of Lincoln, which believe it or not is called Eagle! We meet in the village hall and we occassionally have a guest demonstrator. This month it was Jo Channon, who some of you may have seen on Create and Craft. Andy and I have known Jo for quite a long time now as we originally met at a small fete, which was held in Coningsby's village hall. Andy's sister was there to sell some of her handmade cards and Jo was on the stall next to her. She is a lovely lady and I am so happy for her as she works very hard and always greets you with a big smile and a cup of tea whenever we go to her shop 'Let's Create' which is also in Coningsby (a small-ish village, 19 miles away from us).
We did 3 projects with Jo and tried a lot of techniques that I had never done before. We used the melting pot to make some embellishments, I used guilding flakes for the first time and we also did a card using a mask, Distress inks and dies. I will be putting these cards up in my next entry.
Back to today's cards now and the first one is done using a Little Claire kit. I am a member of the Little Claire Monthly Stamp club and that includes a card kit and instructions every month. Andy bought me the subscription to her club a couple of Christmases ago and he has just let it run on ever since, bless him.
The second card is done using spellbinders D-Lite dies from their first set of releases and one from the latest set. To make a change I have also used some peel-offs as they sit in my craft room, month after month never getting used.
I hope you like these cards and I will try not to  leave it so long next time!!,
see you soon,
lots of love,
