"Simple card from the Bits"

Hello Blog friends, I hope you are well and staying clear of all the Bugs that going about.
I am over the cold I managed to pick up from somewhere.  Hope that`s it for along time, I took so bad as I am not one to be bothered with colds, thank goodness.
Thank you so much for calling by today.  I really love that you come to visit and leave all your lovely comments.    I think I have almost caught up with all my commenting.  If I have not visited you yet, hopefully I will be there soon.
Did the Card Class this morning, the ladies seemed pleased with the cards they made.  I have two ladies who come together, they are always rather grumpy and do not smile much.  Today there was just one of them ....Oh! My! Goodness! she was like a different person.  Chatty, laughing and actually talking, what a treat..... I now think I quite like this lady!!!    Next time will be the last class for this year.  They all want yet more Christmas cards, there is a limit for Christmas Cards and I think I have reached that.  Will have to scour some magazines for ideas for the next class.
Very quick card made from some of the "bits" I am trying to clear away off the corner of the Dinning Room table.  

White card I made into approx 4 x 6 card
A piece of paper I had printed from a My Craft Studio Floriography CD
SB Basic Lattice Die cut I cut for something else 
Rose made using SB Blossom Five Die from some of the backing paper
Leaves cut from a Crealies Die from Joanna Sheen
Banner made from scraps of white and brown card
Sentiment a Stamping Up Stamp

Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate that you time out of your busy day to call by

Ooops!!! nearly forgot did you see the lovely card my sister (Hazel) Baskets of Joy posted??? I am rather proud of her and her first attempt
That`s it for today folks
Till next time
