"Two cards for tomorrows class"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any one who pops in to see what I get up to.  You are very welcome and I am delighted to have you here.
A very quick post for today.  We got a phone call this morning from John Jnr ...."mum" Oh! when I get that voice I know what is coming!!!!  Can you please pick the boys up from school and give them their tea??  Audrey is working, John was working from home but has been called away to a meeting in Edinburgh.  He will be back but not early enough to get the boys.  Run to Forfar to stock up on plenty milk plus white bread (we only use brown) and something for tea.  Grandpa has just left to pick them up.  It is a nice afternoon, the bikes are all out and ready for them to go for a run before tea.
Not had much time to "play" I have been getting packs made up for the Card Class tomorrow.  The ladies wanted cards suitable for boys and girls.  Elaine said she would do the boys, that left the girls for me.  The LOTV pre-printed images are the perfect solution.  Hazel and I bought a few Art Pads on Saturday, they have been put to good use already.  Looks like I might need to get some more.
Here are 2 cards I have put together to give them ideas.  I feel these could easily be used as "Mothers Day" cards as well.

Both cards are approx 5 x 7
Elaine and I always do two cards as samples, we give them enough card, paper, bits and pieces so they can do their own take on the project. 
White card blanks
Lilac & Pink card stock
Papers printed for a CD
LOTV images

That`s it for today

Thank you very much for visiting I really appreciate it
Till next time

  23. Two adorable cards Patricia, Love the design and colours. Loved yesterdays card, sorry did not get round to anyone yesterday!

    Shame about the craft show, perhaps its because Ally Pally is coming up, who knows, I am presuming these craft companies try and go to all the big shows but what do I know, never even been to one!!! You got some good purchases though.

    My, sorry about your parents, four girls ay? I bet Hazel has a really close bond with your sisters if she bought them up? Not that you wouldn't either but with them being so young they must think of Hazel as a mom rather than sister? Good on you both for coping so well at such a young age. I lost both my parents when I was 31 that was young enough!

    Hope your class goes well and that they all behave lol!

    Love & Hugs
