Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? On Saturday I went to a really fun knitting workshop in Bristol - a friend taught be to do the basics a few years ago but the most I've been able to do is Cast On, Cast Off and Knit Stitch so when I saw this course I thought I'd try to expand my repertoire!
It was a fun day - basically a group of girls, sitting round a table chatting and knitting and I'm pleased to say I my knowledge increased ten-fold, and maybe someday I'll progress past scarves!
On Friday I had a very exciting mail day - my first Waltzing Mouse Stamps arrived! I've long been a fan and admirer of Claire's work and stamps and am now the proud over of a few of her fabulous sets. And I received them just in time to join in today's blog waltz!!
This month's waltz is a birthday theme, and I used
WPlus9 Studio Colour Challenge for my colour scheme:
Here's my card... that rose is such a stunning stamp so expect to see a lot more of it!
