Quick and simple ...

Hello .. How are you all? ...  It's nearly the weekend and today we have lovely sunshine ... maybe Spring is finally on the way here ... I had to make a quick 'male' card today ... I love that I can always fall back on my digital collection ... this one is from Hero Arts (Bird Branch) printed onto digital paper from Jen Allyson ... Vintage Findings Ledger Paper ...



I used some lovely Tim Holtz paper to stitch it too and then mounted it onto Kraft CS ...


As you can see I added some gems and a couple of buttons and my sentiment is computer generated and printed straight onto my CS ... Quick and simple ... (and you can see my sewing machine is playing up again ... but it all adds to the look)

I spent all day yesterday preparing for my group ... Valentine's card making is always popular ... so I took lots of goods for them to play around with ... these are an example of what they made ...


I can't tell you how many hearts I cut and I bought lots of sparkly ones too ... I printed and cut tons of those tickets and papers ... folded and cut lots of blank cards for them ... sorted buttons, ribbons and the extra's that I take for certain people ... one girl likes crackly acetate which she sits playing contentedly with all evening ... one girl likes to draw and just stick things and loves a new ribbon in her hair each week ... and so on ... But no one told me that my class would not be a full one because the group were doing a show of Narnia in the town centre! So after all that I have a heap of stuff left over ... Ce la vie!

Have a wonderful weekend ...
Till soon
