The cards from todays Christmas card class
We stamped and painted House Mouse.
I had booked the class last minute and had been busy all week ( other commitments, journals, classes, atc swaps that needed posting etc and a little late night jaunt to Sheffield midweek, as well as the usual family and work commitments)
So I made all the cards and did all the class prep and instructions after work last night, a little tighter than I usually like to have my deadlines lol, but it did help me to time the class and at least I knew it would be possible for all my ladies to make the cards in the one day.
We used a vintage image on this one, the gorgeous glittery papers are by Making Memories.
Die cutting and embossing, ink and stickles on this next one
We went for a frosty look on this next card and turned a label into hinges, the snowflake border is by Tim Holtz
And this last DL sized card is actually made from envelopes to create a pocket for gift certificates etc, the lantern is a Marianne Design die
We had a great day, lovely company, lovely relaxed atmosphere and some hearty laughs thrown in for good measure
I have a few thankyous to post tonight
Thankyou to Kate for giving Amy and I a lift home, it saved me catching the bus with all my bags and Cuttlebug xxx
Thankyou to Carol for the box of chocolates earlier in the week xxx
Thankyou to Anita for the gorgeous crocheted flowers and fabulous stamp xxx
Thankyou to Debbie for the loan of the Christmas stamps xxx
Thankyou to Ann for the great big bag of all things inky, painty and alterable - you have no idea how much fun I am going to have with those - my mind is whirring already xxx
Thankyou to all the ladies who helped Amy and I to clear up tonight, especially Trish, who always sneaks out back and washes up pots, clears the tables by stealth and generally keeps the shop looking less like a bomb site during the classes she comes to xxx
I have had a crazy busy week, but it has been absolutely brilliant, I am so lucky to have so many wonderful friends, the hard work and effort is worth every single minute - thankyou all xxx
Friendship is not a big thing - it's a million little things!
