First Workshop

I had my very first workshop on the weekend, I think it went pretty well. It was kinda easy as it was some close friends - good way to practice. We did a couple of cards and a sunny boy container (I think they were just as excited about the jaffas and m&ms's I had brought to put in them).

This is a photo of one of the cards and envelope, I decided to also include stamping on tissue paper (only if we had time - which unfortunately we didn't, oh well). I had pre-cut all cardstock and placed them in paper bags, but they were a little plain as they were, so I stamped one of the flowers from the Fifth Avenue Floral set on the front and another flower on a circle of cardstock to close the bag.

Here is a close up of the card, I tried to keep it simple.

The other card used the 24-7 Friends Stamp Set, I forgot to take a photo of the card, but here are the cardstock sets. I did this one in a choice of blue or pink - the tag on the back indicated which colour cardstock was inside.

Unfortunately I didn't get to do any cards for challenges this weekend, and running a bit behind in all areas (my house looks like it has been hit by a tornado!), but hope to get some done this week.
