mold II photos -part 1

Good evening everyone.

Did you have that fantastic sunset in your area tonight?  It was one of those sunsets where I needed to be way out in the country to get a really good photo. But just photographing it over the roof tops wouldn't have really shown it off.

Anyway I am here tonight to show you the Show & Tell cards from last nights Mold II meeting. Where the challenge was  colour theme - Kraft, pale blue & peach.  Several of the ladies said that they hadn't liked the thought of this colour scheme - but as always they came through --

Isn't this delightful, 

& here is another one slightly different.  Pleased to see a stamped happy birthday.

Some beautiful flowers - pale blue & peach actually go very well together.

A lovely Easter egg card - just the right colours for this one.

Such a pretty card & we have been teased by this one.  Carol who made it is going to show us - possibly next month - how she made those flowers.

Very very pretty & made by Elizabeth who had just bought (or been given) a Big -Shot machine.
Obviously thoroughly enjoying getting used to using it.

Another one of those lovely fold flat pop up card in a box cards.
(See my note at the end)

Very delicate card

I just had to show this sentiment it was on the insert in the above card.  
Isn't a lovely saying?

I love finding these colour combinations - it does us all good to step out of our comfort zone on colour & surprise ourselves with what we can create.

At the start of the evening Rita showed us all a quick "no measuring" way of creating that fold flat pop-up box card.  Then Carolyn - whose lovely display of these cards I had showcased recently - also came up with a quick way.

I will write up their 2 versions & put it on the tutorial page.  I had said previously I was going to put an instruction on there & it happens to be the same one as Carolyn has suggested.  I will try & do that tomorrow.

Tomorrow I have one of my crochet workshops.  Then in the afternoon I need to put the finishing touches to my "first wedding anniversary" card for Bob.  Yes! a whole year has gone by - one year on Friday.  Where does the time go.

That's me for now.
Night night.
