Today I am sharing Michele's beautiful Stepper card, this is one of the many projects that Michele had already cut out and planned for the classes that she was going to be running before she was let down by the shop owner, I can help but think that the lady should refund you for the expense you had preparing for the classes that were cancelled last minute, I know that you can eventually use all of the card bases and die cut pieces that you made for the different skill levels in different classes and no doubt printed instructions but that isn't the point, you wouldn't have cut that many stepper card size pieces of card of die cut that many flowers ordinarily. Why she couldn't reschedule is beyond me, I hope she told the ladies that wanted to come that it was her that cancelled and not you.
Anyway lets admire your beautiful card, I would have been so proud if I had attended a class and came away with something as amazing as this, so great choice of project firstly. I also love your pretty, yet simple design, I am sure that by the time the ladies had worked out the actual cutting out of the card base they would have wanted a simple design. Your choice of colours works so well to, I think that this would make a perfect Get Well Soon card to take someone in hospital, as you aren't allowed to take flowers these days, this would make anyone smile.
This card would also work for this weeks challenge, using Categories: Fancy Fold/Flowers/Celebrate
I would like to thank you all for your fantastic response to the ATC challenge yesterday, it's quite scary suggesting something new sometimes as you just can't guess peoples reactions, I am hoping that picking partners and the 4 weeks to complete makes it easier for most of us to take part.
I will wait a couple of days to make sure everyone has decided whether to join or not, I will then draw the partners and let you know.
Sue and I had an absolutely lovely day yesterday, most of you will find this very hard to believe but we managed to spend a good 4 1/2 hours in The Range, yes you heard right 4 1/2 hours!! But as always the time just flew, we did start out having lunch in there, which was very tasty and very reasonably priced, it was actually better than the local Garden centre we went to where the food is double the price and not as tasty, Sue had a jacket potato that had about a pound of cheese grated onto it with salad, which looked delicious and I had a turkey, stuffing and cranberry Panini, with a huge salad that was also very nice. We didn't have dessert then as we decided we would go back for the afternoon tea/cake offer when we had finished shopping as we were both full. So the first hour was probably having lunch, we had a browse upstairs and then went down and got distracted by the many aisles of Christmas Decorations, OMG they were beautiful, we could have spent an absolute fortune, we were very good though, I bought two cute robins and a santa and I don't think Sue bought any decorations, oh apart from a Snowglobe, I think she is planning to return with Margaret though!
We then went on to Home furnishing as I was looking for cushions to match my new curtains, we were very loaded up then so went and paid and unloaded, then returned to 'do' the craft area, which was probably another good hour or more, as we spent time discussing what we could do with everything. We were very tired by now and decided to go for that tea and cake, so waited for the lift only to get up there to discover the chap had just closed up! We were gutted as we both had our eye on the Viennese Mince Pies! Maybe next time 😜😜!!
Thank you so very much Sue I had a lovely afternoon, I hope you aren't too sore today, but I am guessing that you are like me and having a very slow day xxx
Thats all for today ladies,
Have a lovely day however you are spending it,
Love and hugs to all,
