Kilkenny Craft Club - 23/Nov/2011

Hi All, heres a pic of the card I done with the girls in Kilkenny last Wednesday night.  The topper and backing papers are taken from the Lilac Garden Christmas CD and the die cuts used are the new Spellbinders Fleur De Lis squares and accents. It is finished off with a peel-off greeting.

Yvonne Tune Workshop in Kilkenny

On behalf of the Kilkenny Craft Club (and I'm sure all others who were there on the day) a huge Thank You to Yvonne for yet another wonderful day at the Bridge Centre in Kilkenny last Saturday.  Yvonne gave us all much food for thought and also some great ideas for our Christmas Cards.

The card challenge for this class was a Child's Christmas Card and I decided
to do it for an older child rather than a younger one so here's my effort...
and to top it all off I won the challenge raffle - yipee!!   Its a picture of two
Victorian Chidren and is embedded into a cut-out frame from a Kameo CD. 
Hope you like it.

Hi all, I've been missing for a while but I have been busy crafting too!

Our Kilkenny Craft Club have been to the Hobbycrafts in Belfast and a great day was enjoyed by all who went.  Below are three cards from our Wednesday nights in October at the Craft Club (which takes place at 7.30p.m in the Clubhouse in Kilkenny). The first one which was an anniversary card was taught to us by Kay Brennan and the second one called the bird house was taught by Ann Kirwan and the third one is a Pammy Hamster Christmas card taught by myself.

Hope you like them!
