Little Claire Wirral Workshop

We had a great day yesterday at the Little Claire Wirral Workshop!  It was lovely to see everyone again and I hope those who attended enjoyed it as much as we did.  The ladies who attended the workshop were divided in to groups and did three classes during the day - one with myself, one with Gaynor and one with Gill.

Here are the cards the ladies made during my class:

For this card I used the lovely Pom Pom Dahlia stamped on to kraft card and then coloured with Promarkers.  I used some twine and paper from the Dovecraft Tea Party pack plus some kraft paper.

Next a card using Mary Splashing plus Georgina's Buttons and Stitching Stamp Set.  The paper is from the Tea Party pack again and I used the gorgeous Glitter Sparkle Sheet over the top of the stamped and coloured image for a bit of bling!

This card was made with the very sweet And So to Bed stamp and paper from the Tea Party pack as before.  I die cut the base card plus the layers using the Grand Scalloped Squares Nestabilities.

Next another card which I die cut myself - this time using the Grand Labels Four Nestabilities.  The stamp is called Rainy Days and the paper (you've guessed it!) is from the Tea Party pack.

Finally a tag card.  The card base is from Little Claire here and the paper is available here (not from the Tea Party pack for this one!).  The stamp I used for this one is Flossie Daisychain and the circle sentiments are from a brand new sheet of mixed designs.

I'd like to enter my cards in the following challenges:

Party Times Tuesdays - 'anything goes + kraft' (first card)
Passion for Promarkers - 'cut it out' (third card)
I Love Promarkers - 'floral image' (first card)
Moving Along With the Times - 'garden or flower' (first card)
Crafty Ann's Challenge - 'stitching, real or faux' (second card)
Crazy 4 Challenges - 'paper piecing' (fourth card)
Addicted to Stamps Challenge - 'card for a woman' (first card)
Joanna Sheen Challenge - 'flower power' (first card)
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - 'anything but square' (last card)
Stampin for the Weekend - 'sparkle and shine' (second card)

I was also really surprised and very pleased this morning to find that I've been picked as one of the top three  in the 'Someone Special' challenge on the Joanna Sheen Challenge site - thank you!
