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………
The word can be any 4-5 letter word you like as I will bring all my alphabet dies with me plus all the dies to make the snowflakes etc. but please feel free to bring any of your own along plus any Christmas embellishments you may want to use.
