Magnolia Open Day, Boras, Sweden - My Sunday workshop


Evening everyone! Here's the card for my Sunday workshop at Magnolia with the gorgeous Cozy bear this time. Again a nice easy card design so that we can concentrate on the snowy fir tree painted scene in the background.

Thank you for all the lovely messages yesterday and today and I'll be reporting back on the trip next week, hopefully with lots of photographs. It's been busy and I haven't been able to do any blog hopping but I hope to catch up with you all very soon. Have a great weekend and I can't wait to meet all my lovely friends and everyone at Magnolia in Sweden tomorrow :)

Hi Chris, I always smile to myself when you say it is an easy card...if I worked on a card for a month it would not look anywhere near as beautiful as yours...your colouring is stunning! I guess that is why you will be in Sweden though. Hope you have a wonderful time and look forward to hearing all about it - must be so exciting! Crafty hugs, Anne x

I cannot believe you did not take me with you!! I would have paid my own way and you know you need a secretary who cares about your personal welfare. Hey Chris, I cannot wait to see your pictures and this work shop should have been like taking candy away from a baby for you. Your snowy fir trees look beautiful!
