On The Move!

Hi Everyone,
 
Firstly I must thank Marianne at Marianne's Craftroom, for alerting me that I had word verification on my comment page. It has now been removed!
 
The Craft Barn, where I worked as a Tutor and Demonstrator for a few years, until my leg got too bad, has moved. They were in Lingfield, Surrey, just a 7 minute drive from my house. They are now in a new, huge barn conversion in South Nutfield, Surrey, a 30 minute drive from my house.
 
It is very strange, because when I moved out of London, 41 years ago, I moved to South Nutfield. I lived in an apartment, in the road that runs parallel with Sandy Lane where The Craft Barn now is! They are on Priory Farm, where I used to go to satisfy my strawberry craving when I was pregnant with my daughter!
 
If the weather is ok tomorrow, a friend is taking me there.
 
This is a card I have made for Sandy and Ian, the owners of The Craft Barn. The image is a LOTV stamp and coloured with Distress Inks.
 

The backing papers are from a pack that was free with the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

 
The flowers are mainly some old Prima flowers that I cut up and made different shapes with. The large white one was a rosebud that I took apart and then put my heat gun onto it to open the petals.


I am really looking forward to seeing the new barn, as the last one was not the easiest to work in!
 
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving your lovely comments.
 
Hugs,
