Holiday Card Workshop - Day 4

Hello Friends,

I have been having a great week, I've been doing all my jobs in the morning ready to begin the class when it comes in at around lunch time here in the UK.  It has worked well and I have felt more or less up-to-date with things.  But with so much inspiration yesterday and with getting "on a roll" with those lovely robin cards, which were a dream to make, with the quick colouring technique, I went to bed feeling that I hadn't made a card similar to Shari's!  So with gay abandon, I decided to skip the ironing and craft like Shari this morning!

Here is my card.........

The class was based on working on an acetate panel, which I found a little fiddly but definitely worth it.  I'm still using supplies I've had for years, the stamped image is one of the first ever Christmas stamps I bought, more than 10 years ago.  It had gone a little hard and my lovely friend Maria told me that all I needed to do was to sand it a little, which I did and it stamped really well.

The papers I've had for many years too, which I found whilst sorting out some of my old stash, they are from when I was a Creative Memories Consultant, which seems a life time ago!

I've used Whisper White card stock, Christmas sentiment and punches all from when I was a Stampin' Up demo - oh how nice it is to use up my stash.  I never thought I'd feel so good putting it all to good use!

Another card without the Silhouette, I can't quite believe it - lol !!!

Have a great day and I hope to be back later with whatever I make from the class today, when it comes in at lunch time.



  1. Another fabulous card, Carole! Love what you've done on this one. Maria xx
