"Card Class Cards"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who pop in to see what I have been getting up to.  Welcome to my little corner of Blogland, so glad to have you here.
We have had some stunning weather (ok it turned to bucketing showers yesterday)  Today when I opened the curtains it looked like we had a dusting of snow but it just an extremely thick frost.  
I did my Card Class yesterday, the rebels were delighted with the cards I had for them to do.  Yehhh!!! I really seem to have cracked it, took a long time but we got there.
Gave them their "kits" and showed them how to make the Felt Flowers.    Once that was done they got on and made some great cards.
Here are my "samples":-
 


 
Felt flowers were made from instructions given by Sue Wilson when she did  a show on C&C
Flower on the last card was made from a small circle of felt.  Instructions also given by Sue at some point.
Papers are a mixture printed from CDs and from £3 Paper Pads from The Works.  If you have one of these shops near you do pop in.   They have a wonderful selection of  Paper Pads, beautiful quality and so reasonably priced.  They also have a nice selection of Crafty Things.......!!!
Punched Butterflies & Stamped sentiments
Little bit of Glitter here and there

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate that you take time to do that.
Now that the sun is shining I am finding less time to sit at the computer and I am sure you guys are the same.  All your visits are now doubly precious to me.
Till next time
Hugs

  3. Hi Patricia,
    I'm pleased that you've finally got the rebels under control! I bet they were delighted with their cards and the felt flowers are great. I haven't tried 1 and 2 yet, but 3 is an old favourite, usually with a small pearl stuck in the middle!

  22. Hi Patricia,
    Three lovely cards! You finally licked them into shape!
    I love making felt flowers . The one on the second card is a favourite of mine. I wish Sue and Creative Expressions would offer felt more often.
    Been a gorgeous week here so far but tomorrow is downhill I believe.

  23. Hello Patricia, lovely cards, every one and I'm pleased the craft group got so much enjoyment from doing them.
    I was in the Works today and bought some paper pads and embellishment for my craft group on Saturday, they have some super stuff and so inexpensive. Cold night here, I hear talk of snow!!, hugs Kate x
