I was asked by my sister if I would do a cardmaking session at her flower club, it's only a small club, about fifteen ladies, only one was a cardmaker. So it was a bit of a challenge to come up with some designs for them to make that were easy, but that they would get satisfaction from the finished articles. I thought since it was a flower arranging club, that all the cards should be floral. Here's what I came up with:
A crumpled punched flower.......
A bit of colouring......
and some stamping.......this was the one that caused most problems.

They all seemed to enjoy it, and a few of them said they wanted to take up the hobby
I had a good time at the Craft Show - I took some photos of the goodies I found, but haven't had time to edit them yet. I came home with rather a lot of

What are they for?

Oh............I wished I could be a secret agent
(obviously philanthropic thoughts haven't entered the four year old mind yet...)
The next night, there was another conversation at bedtime
Daddy, at Christmas I heard Rudolph!
Wow! Children never hear Rudolph because Santa knows when you are asleep
Well, I was asleep, pretending to be awake
Work that one out!
