Card Making workshop

Today was a lovely, fun day. I was giving part of the workshop today, making cards using fabric in different ways. Hils started the day of with 5 stunning cards all required compulsory inky fingers. Then Giselle did hers which were supposed to be ink free, but there was one optional use of ink to edge some flowers, I think my favourite was the card using black and pink on it. We had 25 wonderful ladies who each took home 15 beautiful cards to send to friends and family.

Ellie bought the Modscraps shop, but unfortunately I had left my handbag at home so I could only stroke the pretty papers. Ellie also provided raffle prizes, lovely too, thanks Ellie. And Jayne who couldn't come because her daughter went into labour had donated 2 fiskars prizes.

There was a pre-class challenge to make a card for a male. And there were loads of stunning cards, fishing tent, garden shed, decorated fish, car cards, all were very ingenious and I wondered why I was giving the class!

And it looks like we may well be doing another for Christmas, October, November time, so a few months to think about designs for that.

Photos will come later, as I didn't have my camera because it was in my handbag at home, I borrowed Hils's and she will pass photos on to me later.

I have taken some liquid floor polish from Hils, to have a go at one of her cards, that was gorgeous. Off to bed with my achey legs now.
