"Happy Anniversary"

Hello Followers, Blog Friends and anyone who happens to pop by for a look at what I get up to.
Thank you for taking time to call in, I love having you here.
Well folks I did my Craft Class yesterday and it was .......wait for it......very enjoyable.  I think the "rebels" have got the message.  One of them actually said that she had a great time and enjoyed the class..............Hooray!!!!!   We do the classes every other week however some of the ladies want to learn how to do the "roses".  Now as you can imagine there are of course a few who felt that it was not for them, fair enough I accept that.  Next Tuesday I am holding a class just to do "roses" .  I have cut out enough for them to have a go at "6"   Seems a lot for a beginners class BUT!!! I know the problems ahead and they will probably go home with half of that amount as actual roses!!!  I have made up packs so that if they have time they will go home with their roses on a card.  I made today`s card as an example of what they can do.  These are the colours for the class, they wanted pinks or lilacs   I used all the left over "bits" from my Mother`s Day Card to make the example.
Sorry if you find my card too similar but as they say "waste not want not". 

I have cut out 3 of their roses in white so they don`t feel they are wasting good paper if they don`t get it right.  We all have to learn
Once they have mastered it they can go on to the nice floral stuff.......!!
I have actually used a white Rose on this card.  I  inked the edges with Dusty Concord Ink.  I also cut out all the foliage from white.  The little band of floral you see under the banner is to cover up the join of two scrap pieces rather throw them out
Right off to get dressed to go meet Hazel

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time

Patricia   xx

  23. Hi Patricia
    Blimey lass, has Elaine been slipping a splash of something in their tea? About time they appreciated your efforts.
    I'm a sucker for a lilac card and this is super doopah chuck. I should get doing some more florals as my daffs are out and it makes me feel all flowery again.
    Take care

    PS. . . . . The funny was very funny tee hee!

  24. hi Patricia, lovely card with your beautiful roses, your class will love making these.

  25. Hi Patricia this is a gorgeous card fab roses and love the colour huggles Sue xx

  26. This is just lovely, and you did great at using your snippets left. Gosh I wish I were close enough to get in your roses class! Any that I've tried to make looked so poorly done, I resorted to 'bought' ones! These folks are lucky to have a good teacher such as yourself - but I'm glad your last group finally got the idea & didn't complain!!! (We don't particularly celebrate St. Pat's here at our house, but have friends who are Irish. And I like green!) TFS & Hugs

  27. Such a pretty card!! Your flowers are gorgeous!!

  28. Gorgeous card Patricia...your flowers are always amazing... I wish I could come along to master these at your class... Hugs May x x

  29. Morning Patricia, So glad the 'rebels' loved your class, and so they should haha, I know that I would, and as for the 'roses' I would love to attend that one !!
    Your card is beautiful and your ladies will love making this card.
    Hope you enjoyed your meet-up with Hazel.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  30. I guess your rebels got a bit of a shake-up Patricia. This is a lovely card (and my favourite shades). Hope your ladies enjoy your class and have fun. Hugs Christine xx

  31. Stunning Patricia love the roses and card design. I need to take a flower making class.

    Hugs Diane

  32. Hi Patricia,
    superb roses yet again. Love this super design card too.
    Now one needs to use up our snippets don't we.
    So glad your classes went well, I know they will enjoy your roses class.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  33. Yes they've got the message, great news!
    Loving your roses, you've really got the knack of them...need lessons here too.
    Great card.
    Hugs Erika.

  34. Ha ha ha Patricia! Sounds you have mastered your rebels then, haven't you, lol! Your roses are the best, love your beautiful purple card!! Enjoy your evening, hugs, Ira xox

  35. Hee hee! Isn't it a great day when your group goes well?! I know I love it. I'm taking March off and leaving someone else in charge. May there be no tears, heartburn or complaints. Hey. It could happen.

    Love your pretty purple card. I don't feel it is too similar to your previous one. It has a totally different feel. I love the roses. They are fun to make but they do take a bit of practice. You have to know that each rose will have its own personality.
