Made it Monday #1

Linking up with Tara for:
even though guess what?  I'm a day late!!  
I'm going along with Tara and posting something NOT school related although I have done this type of thing in a much more simplified way with a class of kids and a team of helpers!!

Yesterday, I took part in a card-making workshop held at my local library as part of their craft afternoon club and I made this card!!  I don't tend to do fiddly so being part of a group kept me on track and as usual we all had a lot of fun and far too much laughter for a library!  This will be sent to my sister-in-law as she deserves something nice and girly on her birthday (surrounded by so many boys in her household!).  The technique we used to make the dress is called iris folding and all materials were supplied for us to choose from a range of colours - most did pink but I went for purples.  There's no way I would have been able to make this from my own craft supplies as so many special things were needed but it was so good to have a go at something different and I am very pleased at the way it turned out.

Now I'm off to check out what others have made and posted about.  Let me know what you think and if there are any card makers out there leave some tips below and a link to your latest photos!  I'd love to see :)


  1. I love the card you made. It is so 'girly'! I am so into girly right now!

    1. Thanks Paula - I'm not normally "girly" but I can go there when I need to and I am really pleased with the finished result :)
