Morning folks....I'm so lovely buddies Debbi and Anne have some fandabbidosie news to share with you if you live in this neck of the woods...sit up folks and pay attention...

DEBBI says
"I can finally reveal that I'll be starting regular classes (hopefully) at The Papeterie in Aberdeen this month.  I'll be doing some "next step" card classes with each class concentrating on a specific technique or techniques.  The classes will be aimed at those who want to move on from the very basics and learn some papercraft techniques that they can take away and use at home."
"The first class will be on Tuesday 27th September from 10.00am-12 Noon at The Papeterie...will cost £15 and will be concentrating on embossing with die-cutting machines.
You should take along a basic kit...e.g. trimmer, scissors, double sided tape/glue and other favourite tools.  To reserve your place please call Charlotte or Rachel The Elf at The Papeterie on 01224 802337.  If there is sufficient interest I'll be running the classes fortnightly"

ANNE says

  8. Have been to visit both blogs - if only Alford were closer but I've now decided that if I ever move from Brecon it will have to be up to you lot.
    Have been on wallpaper gluing duty today & have ordered my Big Shot......... to replace my Cuttlebug which went to the great plastic & metal recycling pearly gates. Everyone is highly amused that I managed to break it & I am being relentlessly teased!!!
