More workshop photos! - Friday 19th July

Good Morning Friends!

Last night was the second of our 'Out of the Blue' workshops using the hats and bonnets stamp from Crafty Individuals. This week I decided on a variant of last week's card and asked the group to make their card based around the design I posted on Wednesday and these are their magnificent creations! I never fail to be amazed by the different 'takes' everyone has on one 'sketch', because in effect that is how I see my example - a sketch.

 The above card has a very rich, bold feel to it doesn't it? This was made by Sharon, who has also started her own blog and I am sure she will be uploading this card to it...check out her blog here  - Sharon brings some of her cards along to the group and they are stunning.

I am truly overwhelmed by all the cards these ladies come up with - some of them are seasoned crafters but many have only been crafting a short time..shows how addictive this is and why we become so passionate about it doesn't it?

Thanks for stopping by..I really have to succumb to housework this morning..including a spot of ironing in the garden..yes I mean it, it I have to do it I may as well get a tan at the same time! Then hopefully an afternoon of crafting!

  1. Hi Carole,
    truly fabulous creations by your ladies. They are all so differently beautiful in their own right.
    Enjoy your housework, gardening, and ironing.
    I did my ironing this morning at 6am. Now there is a lot more after today as my washing line is full
    Have a wonderful crafty afternoon.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. PS keep meaning to ask you about your friend Amy's blog I can't seem to find her in my bookmarks. If you could let me know the name of her blog I would be grateful.

    1. Hi Jenny, here's the link to Amy's blog, Crafty Little ideas.. ...can definitely recommend ironing in the X

  2. Lovely creations from your ladies Carole...just love this design...
    I too sucumed to some of the dreaded 'H'...ironing but did it before it got too hot...
    Enjoy you weekend


  3. Ooops Carole - just had another chuckle at the mice under the hen - couldn't help it.

    The ladies have made absolutely gorgeous cards, they look truly vintage. So beautiful.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

    PS This heat is killing me - I am sitting trying to craft but just can't get the energy.

  4. The cards are so beautiful Carole, you have a very talented bunch of ladies there. I love the idea of ironing in the garden, must give it a go when I get home. We have been sitting in the garden today watching dozens of hot air balloons going over - just magical. Hugs, Anne x
