October 2013 cards

Hi Ladies I do hope you are all keeping well, unlike us March family sickies who have all seemed to succumb to all the nasty bugs that  life can throw at you all in 1 week. I hasten to add we are all now on the way to recovery & I promise I am bug free now & will not infect anyone this weekend.

Well on to this months cards, we have different cards to offer each group this month so I will start with Aylsham

Card 1 – A Very Special Christmas Card

This card may take all the session to produce but it will be well worth it. I will cut your white card bases to save time but you will need to supply your patterned paper & other coloured card.

My card has a red & green theme but your colour scheme can be anything you fancy.

From the front this looks like nothing special but just wait until we open this card up………
