Card class yesterday and a few makes today...

This card is a Little Claire Design minus the slider...
I just stuck the butterfly in place and added 'pin' antennae.

 I thought I would try out a side-easel with my WIAD card class yesterday.

This was my sample...it is a lovely stamp set...

However this side easel card seemed very labour intensive,
 so there was not enough time to try my next design...

I had to quickly think of a ten-minute card for them to make in the last part of the session -
 much simpler, just some double stamping and matting!

Today I was sorting out my crafting stuff in preparation for moving...we leave Abu Dhabi in 3 weeks.
I found so many lovely things I ended up making cards!

Firstly some Hero Arts Layering Paper I had forgotten I had!
I used this in another side easel  - quite my favourite fold of the moment!
I used SU stamps and 'topnote' die-cuts.
I will submit this to the Get Inky Boys/Men challenge
and also My Craft Creations Transport challenge (AND IT MADE TOP 3!!)

I had edge embossed a few card blanks - this one has a row of buttons.
I added papers, buttons and ribbon to enter

Another favourite shape of the moment, and a very simple card, to submit to

Finally a sketch challenge - Christmas in June...

for the Digi Sketch Challenge  AND THIS WON!!

I really should get on with my sorting...

Happy Crafting!
