Hello Friends, Wednesday already, Hope you are having a good week.. I haven't posted anything for a week.....but have been rather busy, I was asked to do a class at a local craft store, where I had previously done a demo on my packet cards. These are samples of the cards that I made, using ordinary brown paper packets. They are fun to do and the ladies loved them. I will enter in the following challenges
 Make it Monday...anything goes
 Marianne Designs...anything goes
Craft your days away challenge..Make your own flowers
The first card was made using Papermania papers...Hampstead range. These are so lovely to work with and were used to promote the papers in the store. I attached a butterfly cut with a Marianne design die using a cream shimmer paper. Flowers were made using Marianne dies and Nellie Snellen MFD. The sentiment on the inside is from the local store and the flourish and flower again using a Marianne Design die. The second one is a Christmas card with a tag. I had made another one as a sample with a stamped image, but the store owner wanted to keep it as a sample. This one was made with some 3D pushouts mounted onto a Nestability diecut and peel off corners. Very simple and easy to make. The tag I had embossed with a cuttlebug folder and attached a smaller diecut with a peel off sentiment. The ladies had great fun, and I have been asked to do another class next Tuesday.... so lots of preparation and planning. A busy time as one of my grandsons is having his 3rd birthday party and we are having a wedding anniversary this weekend as well. Then there is rugby world cup to watch, where South Africa are defending their title, and spring has arrived, so the garden is crying for attention...we will see what gets done. Hope you all enjoy your week, have fun and take care.
