A Fun Morning and Bunnies!

Hello friends
Today I can reveal the complete picture of the Summer card and gift box that we created in yesterday's class. They feature an assortment of dies including Jewel Flower and Flourishes,
We got so engrossed I forgot that I should be taking photos! 
Busy crafting with Grand Caliburs®
After the class I was able to photo some of the finished items.
Here is Melanie's finished design, she chose to use Foliage Two - looks lovely.

 This is Helen's finished design, she admitted to being very new to die cutting - she did a fantastic job.
 It was a lovely morning, I enjoyed chatting and talking craft.  
I want to say a big thank you to the ladies that attended, you made my first class an absolute pleasure.
The homemade cake - lemon and coconut went down well too :)
I would put a photo of the cake here....but there's only a tiny bit left now the boys have found it!

For those of you who are booked on the next Summer card and gift box class, it will be a different design,
I will be posting a sneak peek soon. 
Kits are being prepared for all class projects and I will be posting details next week. 

Following the class Bella and I went to Hartley to visit a friend of mine.  
She had just collected two baby bunnies.
This is Rosie.
 This is Remy.
 Absolutely adorable, I had to have a cuddle.
I'm heading off to my photography course today - I can't imagine I will forget to take photos this time!
Happy Sunday dear friends.

So glad your first class went well Christine and can't wait for details of the kits. These are lovely projects and so very much your style. Those bunnies are adorable, I had a New Zealand white called William when I was young and used to take him for walks on a collar and lead, he was huge and not at all small like these little fellas.
Have a great time today on the photography course x

hi christine, your project looks fabulous, and the ladies look as though they are really enjoying themselves. know what you mean about boys and cake, i've given up trying to hide cake and biscuits from my son and hubby, i've ran out of hiding places.

the bunnies are soooo cute, Rosie reminded me of our rabbit, Nicky, we had a few years ago, but no longer with us. they are just so cute and cuddley.

enjoy your photography class today, hope is goes well.

Morning Christine

Sounds as though your class yesterday was a resounding success, heres to many more. The project was stunning and I bet it was a pleasure to do.

Those bunnies are so cute. We had a small farm nearby in a school for mentally impaired children, they sold eggs from the chickens and some meat from the various animals to fund it, but they had a huge bunny shed and some of them were so cuddly. I loved the lion head bunny

Enjoy your course today.

Ooo wish i lived near to you Christine to enable me to join in your class all three projects are fantastic ,beautifully done i just bet your ladies are well chuffed ?

Hope you enjoy your photo session ,

I know what you mean regarding cake and boys, i think cakes are like magnets and draw boys towards them saying "eat me" "eat me "

Take Care

Morning Christine, The cards, boxes and envelopes look fantastic, I love them all, congratulations to the ladies. So glad your first class went off OK. The bunnies are adorable, I remember when I got 4 baby bunnies (years ago), I thought I was buying all girlies but when I took them to the vets, they weren't, so my hubby had to set to and build 'bunny mansions', he had originally built one large hutch, he had to build another three ha ha !!. Hope you have a good day today with your photography. Enjoy your day. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine, glad the class went well and was enjoyed by all. Lovely project to make. We once had a dwarf lopeared rabbit - turned out to be not so dwarf!
Enjoy your photography.

Hi Christine, Wow, what lovely cards and gift boxes. The colours and everything all tied in so well. I'm sure you all had a lovely time together. What a grand start to the Acadomy.
Cute, cute and oh so cuddly those bunnies look. Reminds me when my sister and I had two adorable Angora bunnies.
Enjoy your photography session today, hope we get to see the pics. Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x

I love the projects you made on the first Academy course! I must admit to being happy that I was too far away to attend because I was ill on Friday night and wouldn't have been there anyway!!! Well it's the only thing that is keeping me from being soooo green with envy! I am so glad everyone enjoyed it - they certainly look happy.

As for those bunnies they are absolutely gorgeous - I would really love a cuddle. Mind you I still love Bella the best!!

Hugs to you Sue P xxx
