Fun at the club

Last night was our weekly craft session and we had a visit from Kirsty (Wiseman) who you may know as being a 'Scrapping Queen' and a fantastic photographer. She is a really nice person and hilariously funny too! We enjoyed her company and the ladies once again welcomed her as they do with everyone. They are a lovely group of ladies and I am proud that they are in my craft group.
We have been running for 12 months now but haven't got a name for our group yet so everyone went home last night with the job of thinking up some ideas for a name. We will get a list going and then pick one from it.....I will post it on here as soon as we have decided.
I forgot to mention that we had a little challenge at the beginning of May. Each lady was given a sealed envelope containing identical products and an information sheet on what the challenge was all about and what was required. On returning to the club 2 weeks later, we displayed them all and numbered them then each member picked a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice, wrote it on a voting slip and placed it in a box. While they crafted, I counted up the votes and then we had the prize giving! In 3rd place was Lesley, who came to the club last night after having laser surgery on her eyes and has now abandoned her glasses...what lovely eyes she has too! Then in 2nd place we had Joyce who is my original crafting pal from college where we did a cardmaking class together. Joyce is a real trooper and gets up, dusts herself down and carries on no matter what life throws at her, and...she is also funny, funny, funny! Then in 1st place we had Christine who has the best jokes and stories that leave us laughing for ages. She is also a nurse during the day and must surely bring a smile to every patients face.
It was a very difficult choice choosing the winners because each card was lovely and well thought out and no two were the same as you will see from the pictures I have posted on here.
Well that's enough from me for now. I am going shopping with my dear sister who I haven't seen for a couple of weeks. We are off to the Paper Mill shop for a mooch around and then a coffee/tea and cake while we catch up.
Have a good day whatever you do!

Hi Sheila, sorry I missed club on Wed. (looks like I missed a good night)
We have been doing some work on house and decided to laminate the floor.
The room is 24ft l x 20ft W x 15ft Tall vaulted ceiling, ended up sore as hell so couldn't make it.
Will try and think of a name for club for next week, Love Irene
