Here is the sketch ......................
....... & here is their cards ................
A lovely "Me to You" design & it works so well on that blue striped card. I had to take this photo very carefully as Clare had not got the images stuck down. I wonder if she is going to give him his blue nose it will just finish that card off. Listen to me!
A stunning Christmas card - which with the tartan background would make a great Hogmanay card too. I like the way the 2 diamonds are slightly off set with the holly spray in the middle.
Another "Me to You" design & again that lovely blue stripe paper which goes so well with it. Think these 2 were sat next to each other. Well of course, I know they were it was mother & daughter team Clare & Yvonne. Wonder if this one will get a blue nose.?
Ah ha - someone took the sketch to a totally different shaped card - an easel card. Well done Jo (Brookes) it is a great card & that sentiment is really lovely.
I watched the patterned background of this being "built" but didn't know until it was finished that an ATC was being made. So another size card - isn't it great & doesn't it work well that size. Rachel likes her ATC's.
This time the strips to divide the background into 3 strips, have been put on top of the design. It works too & the sketch layout can still be seen.
I like the smooth rounded corners to the background layer & a great colour scheme. It is almost a mono colour scheme. The trees have been stamped on a multi-colour pad - or inked with different ink pads across the stamp. I think the latter is probably the way. Really nice card.
Oh so elegant a design. Each of those ladies have had their hat & coat collars paper pieced - very time consuming but delicately cut out. Both the lady & the flourish were from that lovely Art Deco freebie set a few months back & I know that Janet particularly loves this set.
Well done ladies.
I have said well done at the bottom of each of the posts for this project - & I mean it ladies. When given a sketch for a Show & Tell you have time to think about what you are doing, but given it on the evening with only a quick look at the previous month is different. The usual comments were made - "I would have brought different papers / stamps etc if I had known the shape & size" - but you all managed it anyway.
Well, the weekend is here & tomorrow it's the 1st of December - Christmas is definitely just around the corner.
I don't like writing too many posts without photos - so when I don't have any in the next few weeks I think I will do a "down memory lane" post & show again some of things we did this year - & possibly even last year.
Have a great weekend whatever you are going to be doing. If the cold weather comes in - wrap up warm.
'Bye for now.
