Workshop cards

Hi Bloggettes - I hope no one faints 'cos I'm here again! I know so soon.... take a deep breath it'll soon be over.... lol

Well I thought I'd show you what I've been up to today. I've been to a workshop at Which Craft
with the lovely Paula. I have to say it was fantastic! As well as being supplied with gallons of coffee we also got warm lemon muffins! Oh my they were delicious - I dropped not a crumb ;))

So enough of the muffins (I could have eaten two they were so nice) I thought I'd show you what we did. The base of the workshop were Magnolia's so how could that be bad?

The first pic is a tin - decorated with Cosmo Cricket papers and the most lush net fabric. It was really quick to do which is always handy. It would be ideal for slipping a small gift in.

Then there's this sweet little girl! These are not 'proper' Christmas papers but I think they work well, of course it could easily be adapted for any occasion.

Now excuse the really awful photo! But how do you photograph a concertina card for goodness sake! I mean I'm photographically challenged on the ordinary ones! All I'll say is that I tried my best!

Another bit of the same card.

Finally Edwin and his lantern and a fancy fold card - I'm sure its got a name but I don't know it! I think its really effective and it fits nicely into a DL envelope.

So there you are the fruits of my labours! Well not labour really it was really good fun!
