A Crafty Evening

The Christmas Card Craft Night was Lots of fun!
We all paid close attention as our instructor Val explained how to make each card.

We found different cards at each station.




It took some serious concentration to put the various elements together.


As mom discovered, stamps weren't the only tools we needed!


Val had a nice variety of techniques for us to try and they combined into some very cute cards.


Some techniques were more complicated than others. . . Mom gave up on this ornament! (I came pretty close too.)

There was lots of visiting ( Holly was happy to see an old classmate) and. . .

We can't forget the delicious snacks! (someone brought my all time favorite taziki from The Happy Camel. Yum!)
Thanks Val!
Look what I made
Now pretend you never saw them.
Just in case you are one of the lucky people I plan to send one to. . .

Wow, they're lovely. But after all that work, how can you send them away???I would absolutely not have the patience to do that stuff. Nor the finger ability anymore. (phew, got out of that one)
Tell your mom I expect one from her!!!

Very nice, guys! Mom sure looks like she knows her way around a hammer :)

Miss you lots!

They're great looking and so much better than what you can buy. I wish I weren't so lazy.

Well, didn't you do a fine job! I love to make cards. Don't do it as much as I'd like to. But I have all kinds of rubber stamps and stamp pads and such. When my neighbor's granddaughter comes to visit, she just loves to come over here and make things. I even gave her a bunch of stuff so she'd have her own set-up at her grandma's house for when I'm not here.

I love the little balls made out of circles of paper; my grandma used to make them from old greeting cards!
