Spellbinders Class

Such lovely weather! I spent this morning in the garden.  I cannot believe the plant growth over the last few days.  I'm sure that if I could stand still long enough I would be able to see it happening. I always feel rather dissatisfied with the design of the garden at this time of year..... after watching the Chelsea Flower Show on tv.  I would love to be able to incorporate some of the ideas that I see in the show gardens.....clean lines... concrete structures... sculptures...wild meadows...Dream ...dream ...dream. 

Anyway, I had to  leave my husband to continue riddling the gravel in an area that had been overtaken by very vigorous weeds so that I could attend a class that I had booked at The Papeterie.  Poor him! 

It was a rather hot, but very enjoyable session with Erika Gunter. I have several Spellbinders dies but usually keep to the labels types. I have resisted the hype and the endless offers on Create and Craft tv shows for the other, more intricate dies. After this session I think that I may "need" some of those that we used during the class.   This is the end result.

I am pleased with my efforts as it has given me a different perspective about how to be creative with dies.

Postscript.  When I arrived home, husband was still " riddling". Told him to stop and that I would finish it tomorrow.  Hope the weather holds!!!
