Shabby Chic cards workshop

Just a quick post from me today. These are a set of three shabby chic cards we made at my workshop yesterday at The Art of Craft in Farnborough Hants. This one has been very popular and I am repeating it again on the 19th February, which is fabulous. I have also added some other dates and will be teaching my shadowbox card next week and an altered domino book and an altered box in March.











I designed these cards using Graphic 45 papers - A Ladies Diary and used a Memory box border die, a Sizzic oval frame die courtesy of Lucy and a Spellbinders corner die.









The Martha Stewart butterfly, shabby flower, double bow and music paper added to the shabby chic effects.

My group of ladies were such great fun to work with and we had a real laugh, thanks to Christine and Pat's sense of humour LOL.

Shame I forgot to take photos of them this week. But thanks to Joan, Sheila, Ann, Wendy and Mary as well as Christine and Pat for a fabulous morning.


I hope your week is going well.

Take care and thanks for joining me again today.
