Weekend in the country

As mentioned yesterday I spent last weekend away with my Stampin' Up team The Bloomin' Buds run by the lovely Jenny.

We had 3 nights away in Dorset in a fabulous house.  13 of us went and had 2 houses next to each other but we all ate and crafted in just one of them.  This is where I stayed and where we spent a lot of our time!

We arrived late Friday afternoon  and after unpacking, a cuppa and displaying our show and tell Jenny set us straight to it with 3 projects for the evening.

You can read more about the crafting over on Jillstampsup blog.

After these (and I think we managed tea!) we started on our mass of projects for the weekend.

We all chose 1 stamp set and designed 3 cards using it and then took a 'blue peter' box so the other 12 girls could make the 3 cards too.  When you remember there are 13 of us that is a few cards to make!

We also designed and took a scrapbook page each - yes, even me!!  Again, another box so we could all make each others pages.

You will now see why there were some late nights.

The weather was lovely when we were there and we had a few strolls round the pond.

One afternoon 3 of us went on a longer stroll too round a nature trail which took us through woods full of daffodils which was lovely.

The white house you can see in this picture is the one pictured above too.

The final pic for today was taken by Maria who had come from Lancashire and was our final stroll after emptying and cleaning the cottage.
I was lucky it wasn't too far to go but far enough it was still a holiday.

Jenny is on the left, then Val, me, Debi and Jane - all Buds who I regularly craft with in Poole.

A great weekend and a very large crafty stash I have as a result.
