Can you hear me????

Hello Everyone
...
Well my cold has gone - but after a busy week full of meetings and classes my voice has disappeared. I can only whisper and it SO sounds as though I am putting it on! It has been like this since Wednesday evening, so I am trying to stay quiet and hope I can be heard on the phone by Monday :D
...
So a few projects - firstly this is what we made at my March classes...
...
They were fun projects to make although when I was cutting out all those fence panels for four classes I did wonder if I had given myself a hard task! The basket is a scaled-down version of my butterfly basket from last year.
...
The next card is done using the babywipe technique, with reinkers dripped on to a babywipe and then stamped using the Pick a Petal stamp set from Stampin' Up! Everyone did such a great job with this project and the finished cards were all so different in layout - I wish I had photograped them all to show you. That is something I love about crafting.



My next card was made for a lovely couple we know who recently became engaged. I used the champagne glasses from the Cheers to You stamp set and coloured them with versamark before topping with Dazzling Diamonds.
...
They are layered up using the stunning Bride designer paper and finished with a white satin ribbon. I am very pleased with how this card came out.

...


I have had a request by one of my lovely class ladies for next month. She wants a good card for a man - and I am very man card challenged! So if you have a good one on your blog - leave me a message I will come and get some inspiration. You could be famous around here next month!


Thanks for visiting.

  2. Lovely cards and great bsket. Mens I usually go with anything Earth Elements and the trees are good, also the time set with the clock face. Have you seen some of the faces done with the petals set as well. Check out Michelle (Chatteris) use of the petals as the light for the candles as well on ILWS :-)
