Shadowbox card Workshop

Before I move onto the real content of my post, is anyone I know going to the STITCHES TRADE SHOW in BIRMINGHAM this weekend?
I am hopefully going Sunday and Monday and would love to meet up with any of you who might be there.

I had the most amazing group of ladies at my workshop on Tuesday and not only did we have a fabulous fun  morning with lots of laughs, but they made the most amazing cards.

I used the template I made for my Valentine card a few weeks ago and the images came from a Tilda pack called Garden Party.

A spellbinders die creates the aperture and the Chloe stem is a Memory Box die.

The stamps are ones from the Art of Craft workroom (I forgot to see what they are called!!)

I am lucky to have a group of regular participants to my workshops.

They work hard ( well they have to with me LOL).

Two new ladies who came to join me and have booked to come again - they must have enjoyed it then.

We have great fun and alot of laughs along the way.
Christine had to go and I didn't get a picture of her, maybe next time.

Here are the cards they made.

 Thanks for looking and sharing in our workshop pieces.

Take care and have a fun Valentine day. I will be back soon with my Tim Tag for February.

Looks like a fantastic class, and the cards are wonderful!
Thanks so much for your lovely comments... and recently - no, I haven't been sleeping that much!! The PaperArtsy samples were basically made in a day - but that was an up at 4am (couldn't sleep, too many ideas buzzing), and after an evening break, I had another idea at midnight that meant I finished at about 2am!). Oh, and then one more afterthought the next morning... But I couldn't say no to the chance to play with all those lovely stamps!!

Hi Brenda...gee, the girls have done a brilliant job here. It never ceases to amaze me in a class how no matter what you do everyone has such a different way of seeing it and the end result is different - Love it!

Your card is so full of charm Brenda and in such pretty Spring colours reminding us it isn't too far away (although we did have snowfall yesterday).
Your ladies did you proud with their creations.

Oh wow, they did brilliantly, but how could they not, will a brilliant idea and experienced teacher. Yes, I would definitely have come with you to Birmingham but you may have gathered I am back in France for a funeral and so sorry I didn't write to you before I left, my head was all over the place, but will rectify that now and see you soon,
