The Tapestry Broderie cardstock comes in 12 x 12 sheets 300 gsm which is ideal to make Card blanks, Invitation cards, Thank You Cards, RSVP, Favour Boxes, Save the Date etc etc.
The cardstock comes in White, Ivory, Pale Blue, Pale Pink and Black. Here is a sample of the Black and Ivory which is gorgeous.

Look at this stunning bracelet that Ruth has designed for the Children's Workshop tomorrow. I brought the bracelet home to photograph and my 9 year old daughter wanted me to take a photograph of her wearing it. She loves it and who wouldn't!

For those of you not in the know, the weekend was to decorate a mirror (or box), a bag and anything else that stood still while we were waiting out the drying time. Everybody managed their mirror/box and bag (so far, so good), then they all decorated a pair of shoes, a candle and a glass bowl (except Kirsty, who decorated a wooden bag using shaving foam !?!?!). It was all done using the Jo Sonja paints, Jo Sonja mediums and a few serviettes. Not bad for a weekends work.
So, here goes with the photos:
Betty did not tackle the mirrory, she went for a box with roses tumbling over the side. Her bag was a gorgeous mixture of flowers.
Lisa was into the sunflowers on her bag and she also did a box. They were simply gogeous. The shoe were using the daisy serviette.
Whilst Vanessa opted for pretty in pink as her theme.
Well, I may have got lost for words, but I think each photo tells its own story. So much fun was had and so many wonderful pieces decorated. For those of you there, thank you for making it such a great weekend. For the rest of you, where were you, you missed so much fun!!
See you all soon.
