Workshop cards...

...Good morning, lovely peeps!  Well, I'm back as promised to share the cards we made at class yesterday.  Firstly, I'd like to say a big hello to the lovely Ruth who came along for the first time yesterday - hope you enjoyed it!...

This card came in the Top 3 at Creative Craft Cottage - thanks for choosing me, ladies!

...The first card we made was this pretty, pastel butterfly card - there are a lot more layers to this than first seems and it was a bit of a manic first half an hour whilst everyone tried to get their elements die cut! It's a bit like the Grand National - everyone starts out of the blocks at break neck speed wanting to get ahead and by the end of the class everyone is just dawdling along at their own pace...so funny!...

So that's what we made!  Everyone seemed very happy with the results and went home with 2 lovely cards and hopefully the inspiration to have a go at adapting them with their own crafty stash!
I'll be back on Tuesday with a new DT card for Passion for Promarkers - it's my turn as hostess, so I hope you can play along! Have a super Sunday...
Hugs,

Two really fabulous cards Lisa, I especially love the pretty pastel one, very feminine. Thanks for the sentiment too, and I might try my hand at a swing card now that I've seen your lovely male one above.
