This little birdie

A few weeks ago I showed you one of  the bleached cards I demonstrated in class this one was made by Karensa, instead of using the Elements of Style she used the stamp set Every Moment, after using the bleaching technique on the reeds and bird Karensa coloured the bird and then used a tiny pearl for the eye and gave the butterfly a few spots. I Love it. Karensa celebrated a special birthday this weekend, I hope you had a fabulous day my friend.

Popping Pastels

Whoops I am a day late with my blog post. I made this card at Jacque Pedersons Popping Pastels class on Monday evening (another page to add to my technique album, yay) we used the Friends 24/7 stamp set, which is now a must have.This is such an easy technique to do and I love the colours, being able to go to classes as you know can be such fun and of course Monday's class was fun, it is a great way to catch up and also have a chat while crafting as long as you listen to the instructions for your projects, lol.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter Break, I am certainly looking forward to the extra time off work.

Look  for my posts later today after work.

Techniques Albums

At my monthly Monday evening class the Ladies each made a Technique Album, they really enjoyed making these and are a great group of Ladies, we do have fun at these classes.  We will be make 2 projects at each class using the same technique plus a small sample will also be made  this along with the instructions will be placed into a page protector and added to the album. This project included using chipboard and different ways to colour or cover it. Here are their albums each one is slightly different.


Aren't they fabulous,
