WCMD in Cape Town

Hello fellow stampers and scrappers, 

After being awol for so long, WCMD has inspired me to share with my blog friends how I spent a wonderfully creative day with friends.

We had a jam packed session with eating, drinking, and of course sharing a technique or project. Our venue was once again at our friend the late Sue Berry's home. Her husband Chuck and her sister Patsy were kind enough to host us all for the day. We had the most stunning view of our gorgeous table mountain.

First up was Debbie and Sasha, who showed us how to make an easel post it note holder. Great idea for a future class as well as end of year gifts for fellow workers or teachers


Up next was Gail who as always came up with an elegant and cute creation. A mini picnic basket with fudge to boot




Sharon showed us how we would be packaging our lovely gifts this year with a beautiful black and red round gift box together with hand made poppies on the lid. To finish, embellished with ribbon and bling.



Gift giving is going to be easy this year cause Lee-Ann showed us how to make the most stunning gift bag together with blinged up buckle...now that's definitely an idea I will use again




We certainly had to work for our lunch...lol..Amanda as usual came up with a wonderful project. We were all still recovering from the bird cage we made last year, but this years book card is definitely special.

Lotsa hard work and prep went into this creation...





Aren't the greens and pinks just pretty?

Lunch was delicious...everyone contributed to a lovely meal, which we all probably enjoyed a bit too much ..lol....but back to the grind stone after lunch with a cute little idea from Corinna

I am in love with mini canvas's

Lynn was up next with this quick nifty idea.  

A regular paper cup transformed into a gift cup...lovely to use as a party gift favour


.

My turn next, I had a Tim Holtz in the box die so this little gift bag fit the bill perfectly


One with and one without googly eyes...lol...aren't they just cute.

Last but not least Sandra got us ready for our Christmas cards


This unusual card is a great idea for my nestibilities...definitely one I will try again.

After our usual box of cards handover to Chuck ( we make Chuck cards to use during the coming year) tea time and a thank you rememberance of Sue it was time to head home and enjoy our spoils of the day.

A huge Thank You to Debbie and her side kick Sasha for organising and of course to everyone for their generous contributions in the form of gifts, give aways and lucky draws. It made the day extra special.

And now....the hunt begins for a special project to make at next years WCMD.

Wedding invitations are in the making...will load them after they have been delivered.

Keep it Krafty...until next time...
