Birthday Workshop

Hi, I am writing this on Thursday evening after a day of housework ....grrrr...
Well, yesterday was a very special workshop for me as it was 'my first Birthday'..... I have now been running regular workshops at HG Arts & Crafts in Poynton, Cheshire.......for twelve months,  and I have enjoyed every minute of it and met some fantastic crafters... Looking forward to lots more...

Our main theme was the use of a great paper pack by Docrafts .....
Happy Birthday to you by Papermania... This pack contains a good selection of papers, tags, paper ribbons, numbers and so much more. The first card was a pocket card and can be used when sending, vouchers, tickets or a little gift such as a bookmark. 
The butterfly was stamped on vellum with VersaMark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder, then cut out and mounted..
To embellish the cards we made flowers out of Card Candi, ...these are great fun to make..
I will post details of Card Candi flowers tomorrow.
So , bye for now and catch you again tomorrow.
