More Cards I have made

I have been out to my favourite shop (Wrapped In Paper) again.............
The first card is my entry in the Monthly card challenge..we purchase a kit which has all the bits and pieces in it ..card stock- fancy papers- ribbons- brads and embellishments..and the idea is to produce a card using these things.
It is amazing to see how many different designs that are achieved from the same kit.





On Wednesday they had a "Make and Take" night .....
These are lots of fun and you all get to make a simple card ...this months cards were for Father's Day(This weekend in Oz) ..everyone made the same card with a few slight changes if you were so inclined.




We also made a small tag in the same colours as an added bonus.
The whole process took about an hour...and there were about 25 people there participating.
As I am a member of the W.I.P. club these Make and Take nights are free so I can't complain about that can I.
I love making cards ..I find it very relaxing and rewarding as well because in about 15 minutes you have something that is finished and hopefully it will be admired by the recipient as well.

Very nice! It's good to see some cards for men for a change - there never seem to be enough :)

Yeah! I agree! These cards are great. You must get some good ideas for mixed media stuff from these workshops. Val
