Junior Card Making

Last night I had an Easter themed Card Class with a group of young ladies aged between 7 and 14. We made an Easter Card and a little gift basket to hold a cream egg. The girls did brillantly and I think they were pleased with their project. They all enjoyed playing with my punches. Here are my samples

Monday Night card Class

This was the last week of my Monday Card Class but I'll be back again in the Autumn with another series of classes for you. This week we made a Baby Easel Card and an Easter Card. Here are my samples. This class is very big and I didn't have time to take pics of my ladies and their creations.

The colours aren't very good in these pics maybe take more in the morning in daylight.
