Stampin Up Workshop 16-10-2010

I finally had my very first stampin up workshop.
Firstly a very humongous Thank you to the lovely Rachel Jackson for running my party and just being awesome . My friends and family had a great afternoon of girly chat and card making, the conversation seemed to focus on babies as so many of my girlfriends and family are pregnant or have a baby. Not this little black duck(not yet anyway)
i got so caught up in the day i didn't take photos of everyone having fun
but i took some photos of the cards we made and i also made some gifts to thank everyone for coming
Rach made some great cards for us an i think we inspired everyone for Christmas. we also showed that there are some fantastic colors that you can use for xmas not just red and green

till next time

Just Add ink # 39 add blue

Hi guys
This weeks challenge from the Just add ink team is Incorporated with such a thoughtful cause. They would like to raise awareness of what i would describe a silent disorder of depression and anxiety. I personally have experienced the effect of depression and anxiety on family and friends and it can be just a debilitating as cancer. Its so sad to know that someone close to you can never have the strength to ask for help or they feel so alone that they cannot confide in anyone and find that the easiest way out is to shut everyone out or to end there life. Being blue is not fun and this is a great cause to support.

When i made this card i wanted to think that if i had to give a card to someone who may not be feeling the best today and needed a pick me up to get through the day and this is what i can up with
If you would like to play along or want to read more about this cause please visit Just add ink
