This weeks Sarah Hurley challenge was masking and oh my I did find it a challenge. I used the 2 deers from Sarah's stamp set. As my printer was broken I couldnt print out any papers so I have gone for a monochrome look and used card from stash.
I stamped the small deer first and then masked it and stamped the large deer over the top. Stamped sentiment with gold pigment ink and embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder, then added some ribbon from stash.
Hope you like my efforts to join the challenge pop over to the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog.

I am starting to think about next years retreat and would like your input.
I am trying to move away from Blackpool as we are struggling to get decent rooms to craft in and also I thought a change may be good.
I am trying to get some chalets and a room at Pontins for a weekend, this may be slightly more expensive than Blackpool but I will try to keep the cost down to a minimum. I plan to put 4 people in each chalet to try to reduce costs.
A couple of ideas I have had to try to cut costs are having some sort of kitty and making our own sandwiches for lunch time, so we dont have to pay a buffet (we never eat i all anyway), and maybe not doing a full craft pack (we could still have a retreat stamp).
So I have put some polls across there >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Please let me have your thoughts after all this is your retreat so if I dont know what you want I cant make it happen.

I am sorry to say that we are going to have to put the subs up to £2 a time. This is due to the fact that some months we hardly have enough people to cover the room rent and also we still have to buy the tea and coffee.
I hope everyone is ok with this. The rise will take effect from July.

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone I met during the retreat for making it such a fun and special time. Mostly I would like to say a huge thanks to patsy and angie for organising it, and the fab demonstrators for showing us some wonderful new techniques.
