We had a fab day on Saturday! All my ladies made 31 Christmas cards each which is a huge amount in just 6 hours

I meant to take a picture before we started but I ran out of time!

So here is an action shot!

and we had a very special guest pop by for a quick visit, the lovely Becca, who made an absolutley fabulous card! Didn't she do well!

Little Pressies

My lovely husband asked me the other day "can you put together a card and some little pressies for my mum and grandma by the weekend"

Right, that meant my scrappin night last night turned into a card and box making night instead!

Here is the card - I followed this weeks Sketch Saturday sketch

arty angle...

Little box containing a face mask, body scrub and some Hotel
Chocolat chocolate drops (very yummy!) together with fancy soap from Lush...
...and finally, everything together!

More Christmas Crafting - Tags for All!!

For my Christmas Workshop on Saturday, my ladies have a challenge: they must make as many tags as they can in order to win a fab prize - what they don't know is that they all have to be different!

Here are a few of my examples - I've taped them all up on the windowsill for inspiration!

...a few more...

...and a close up of some of my favourites...

...this one isn't quite right but hopefully my ladies will do a better job than me!

Again I'm entering this one into Charisma Cardz challenge this week which is 'Christmas Crafting'

Christmas Crafting

I'm holding an all day workshop on Saturday - we'll be making 30 (yes 30!) quick-make Christmas cards, one large card (see my post of 2nd October) and as many present tags as possible. There is going to be a prize for the person who makes the most - watch out for my samples on here!

Anyway, as a thank you to my lovely ladies for coming, they will all be getting a little box containing a few little choccies and a small packet of buttons

Here is the box with the contents on it's own...

...all five together...

...and a close up of the detail!

I'm entering these in the Charisma Cardz challenge this week which is 'Christmas Crafting' - a nice easy one.

Bold & Bright - not my thing!!!

I fancied a challenge and thought I'd step outside my comfort zone and go for a really bright colour..Bermuda Bay...I clearly shouldn't have done!

I don't like this one at all!!!

I followed the fab sketch over at Friday Sketchers and also used the 'Spots & Stripes' challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar for extra inspiration

Hopefully my friend who is s for, who is not crafty whatsoever, might not mind the brightness!
