Christmas class

Evening all,

I did plan to update my blog last night but best laid plans and all that ...
Sophie injured her foot playing netball after school and we ended up spending the evening at A & E. Several hours, and 2 lots of x rays later it was decided there were no broken bones and we got home about 10pm. Think her recovery will be swift as she has a school trip to London this week to see Shrek the musical and she really wants to go!  It was definitely a 'people -watching' experience in the casualty dept- the staff working there have my utmost respect.

Back to the cards, I warned you last time that Christmas is not too far away and so have some cards we made at my Wednesday class last week.
Combining the old with the new, sentiment is from the retiring Contempo Christmas set but the paper is from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue. Flourish is from Everything Eleanor and the cute little hearts are from the Owl punch.
Cute little robin this time.


This one definitely seemed to be everyones favourite ! I found it easier to build the wreath by putting a small amount of glue around the edge of a punched scallop circle and then attaching the leaves.this helped to keep the shape and stopped the glue getting onto the door. Love how the embossing folder and a few swipes with an inkpad makes a nice wooden door.


Hope you like ? A couple of the ladies said this week it had inspired them to make a start on their Christmas cards, need to make a start on mine but it won't be tonight - I need to go and refresh the bag of frozen peas lol !
