Lots of cards made but no photos!

well Mothers day came along and I made lots of cards (from us and the kids) and took them to both mums on Sunday and it wasn't til I got home I realised I hadn't photographed them!!!

Then for the craft club I had to be quick in putting something together so used an easel draw card printout I downloaded from the Printable Craft Shop, I did resize it to make it smaller so I could use less card and added pearls and brads from my stash.

Picture isn't brilliant as camera battery was almost dead

It turned out quite well and the ladies loved making them I added some mini dairy milk choccy bars so we could put them in the draws.

Tatty Teddy

Good afternoon, I hope your all having a good Sunday!
I run a craft club in a sheltered housing complex and have been planning our next make this weekend. We had some new members join us last week and one lady expressed a love for Tatty Teddy so I got my Do-Crafts CD out, used my silhouette to cut the boxes and hey presto it all came together.

Tatty was duplicated and I flipped one, cut him out and used acetate to stand him in the middle of the box, glueing the figures back to back. All the embellishments and papers are from the cds except the little roses at Tatty's feet,  these are from My Craft Studio Paper Flowers. I shrank the sheets down so they are tiny, printed and made them up. 
The box is made from card  kindly dontaed to the club by The Paper Mill and is a cream pearlised card.
 I've spent today using my Silhouette to draw out a further 10 of these for my ladies to cut out and make up on Tuesday evening.
