Hello Blog Friends,
I hope you are having a super weekend everyone! Thanks for your comments on my sporadic posts this week, which has been a particularly busy one - but I did manage to get around most of your blogs and see all your lovely creations..apologise if in my rather too hurried blog hops, I left anyone out!
No card as such today, we had a workshop on Thursday and I had already posted the card we made..so apologies for a bit of repetition. Three ladies who normally come together, couldn't make it at the last minute and they were from my group, so I only had a small group this time - however, two of the ladies were first timers and had never paper crafted before, so it worked out okay for them!
The card they made is this paper pieced NOEL card, using a stamp by Woodware.
It's not a difficult card, just a lot of cutting out and measuring for the matting and layering, but all the ladies made lovely cards and I think our first time crafters were very pleased with the results. The Dove paper pieced card is going to be used in a few weeks time for a demo day we are doing at the Library where I work. Our local Council is dedicating a month to encouraging people to take up new activities (Myself and my volunteers had a very successful day encouraging new volunteers this week!) .The library is organising a Hobbies and craft day and we will be giving people the chance to make a card. We also did this last year and it was very successful.
Amy and I have one more class this year, in a few weeks time when will be making a card with Dreamweaver stencils. Then we will be taking break until January, although we have next year's classes to plan of course!
Not so many photos this time, for some reason the rest of them didn't come out too well...I probably wasn't concentrating!
I still have more commissions to fulfil, but hopefully I'll get something made that I can post tomorrow. I'm awaiting the go ahead to post my next Fantastic Ribbons DT project (which I am really pleased with!) and keep watching because in the next few days I will be posting a photo of the candy I have gathered so far, to send to one of you lovely crafters when I get to 50 followers!
Thanks for stopping by,
