My Special Helpers!

As you know, my Craft2gether Craft Club takes place on the second Tuesday of each month. We have a varied timetable covering a variety of techniques and projects. I like to think all who attend go away with something to be proud of. whether it be something new or something they have already tried. But I am always so impressed with everyones work of art. We have such talented crafters and its great to see a variety of different ideas. I know I learn such a lot from everyone and I hope we all can learn from each other.
I couldn't run the club without the help of my darling Bobby and my dear Mum. They are the Refreshments Team!!! Here they are waiting for everyone to arrive.

I would also like to say a big thank you to everyone who help to clear up at the end of a busy evening. I would probably still be there now without their help!!!! You know who you are!
Last month I set a challenge. An Altered picture frame. All who wanted to have ago were given a 5x7 wooden frame. There were no rules only to think outside the box! How wonderful it was when six ladies turned up with their amazing works of art. Every one was completely individual and all were absolutely amazing. It was a shame there had to be a winner because you were all winners Fantastic! Watch this space for the photos.
In the meantime, here are a couple of cards I've made recently. One for my dear friend Karen on her special birthday. Notice there is no age on the card!!!

And one for my oldest Son Tony. Can't believe he's 28!! Makes me feel ancient! Maybe I am!

Don't forget to pop back very soon to see those lovely altered frames.

Take care XXX

Both cards are fantastic Lynne. Thank you for running the club and giving up your precious time. One day I will finish the project in class and produce something you are proud of - honest.
