Oh well !!

Morning all!  What horrible weather we're having at the moment - all the more excuse for staying inside and playing!! 
As I mentioned in my last comment on my blog - Jilll (Cardinal Colours) and I decided we wouldn't do the card class next week - although we had initial interest I reckon it was too near Christmas and too short notice and people had to drop out..  Maybe next year!  Bit of a shame cos Jill had ordered lots of stuff for the class but she hopes she can sell it anyway.  Anyway gives me a chance to practice a bit more!!
I mentioned earlier that it was my granddaughter, Emily's, birthday on Halloween and I had made her a 'book' card.  Stupidly I forgot to take a picture of it so my daughter brought the card back so I could take pictures.  Rather than bore you all with every single page just thought you'd like to see the front spelling out her name.  I used the Funky Word Books CD (http://www.funkyhandcom/) for the basic letter shapes but the colours didn't fit into Halloween so I traced the shapes onto black card stock and then onto the paper stock!  Bit of a labour of love.  All the other pages were covered front and back with halloween papers and rub-ons.  I used Basic Grey Eerie for all the papers and the rub-ons were also Basic  Grey.  I also used the Bazzil Basics Cardstock strips Halloween.  The ribbons were from my stash. 

I have also made this Christmas card from the Cute Companions Winter Tale CD - very simple but I think very effective.

Have a nice rest of the weekend (weather permitting!).  Byee xx

Hiya Hun....I am gutted you have had to postpone it, what a shame. Please save me a seat when you do teach it though, What about doing a class at the Dec crop? I would love to make the acetate one.
Your halloween book is fabulous and even better in the flesh....see you soon...xxxxxx

Such a shame that you had to cancel but can understand why. Please let us know when you sort some dates for next year as I love learning new things.

Just had a thought - maybe you could do a little class at Debden next year - quite a few of us that go are cardmakers.

Liz, such a shame about the class, but maybe it is rather a busy time right now. Let me know when you have new dates, or if you do decide to teach one of the cards at the next crop.
Love the Halloween birthday card, and the Christmas card too.

Thank you all of you for your kind comments. I'll see what Jill reckons re teaching at the crop.

Linda said...

Love the name book, fab colours and content - I bet she really loved it.

Shame re the class, perhaps December crop as suggested above - would like to try the acetate one same as Anita.

liz said...

Thanks Linda. xx

By all means do the class at the crop if the others would like to do it. I would like to do the acetate card especially. Great idea.

Shame you have had to postpone, keep me posted too about dates for next time. Love the word book and the cards are scrummy (as always)
