Crafty Club Friday

Well here we are again - another Friday another Craft Club day and I really enjoyed it today - we welcomed another new member (hello Marcelle) and chatted and laughed our way through the session!
This is taken at the beginning before everybody had arrived and as you can see I am a really messy crafter ha ha - everybody else had beautiful neat organised piles where mine is just exploded all over the place.   The only thing missing is my coffee cup - I really need my mocca to start the day off right!   Lots of different things going on today - we had calligraphy, cross-stitch,felt sewing and jewellery making as well as my papercrafting so lots of things to look at and admire.
Thought I would work on some Christmas Cards today so here is my efforts - 2  easel cards (would you believe that I've never made them before so it's a first for me).  A decoupage winter scene with pinflair gel instead of sticky pads and a matted and layered one.

 I thought I would have a go at making a paper rose - so here is my practise one made from normal photocopy paper with the edges just lightly dabbed with distress ink - I'm quite pleased at how it turned out and I will be making more of them to put on my die cut type of cards - I have been naughty and got myself some more embossing folders and no doubt you will see them creeping in more and more over the coming months.   Well that is enough from me just now - so happy crafting everyone......... until the next time
