First Class Project of 2013

 Hi Everyone.  I hope you are recovered from the holidays if you have returned to work and if you are lucky enough to still be on holiday then I hope you are enjoying the time out.  My Two Favourite Little People are staying with us from Monday to Friday and then going home at the weekends until school returns on February 4.  We are having LOTS of fun with movies, swimming, visits to the park, baking etc.  They are such cool kids and this time is SO Special.  All the,activities doesn't leave much time for crafting though, and I have been very mindful of needing to get the Feb/March classes sorted.  Kate will be needing to get the Newsletter out YESTERDAY!!! So with that in mind I have spent this weekend working on this little project.  I think it is GORGEOUS and lovely to do.  This is my third attempt as I changed my mind about which type of card to use, how to join it together etc etc.  You know how projects evolve don't you?  Anyway I am happy with it now and the others didn't go to waste as I can use the panels to make matching birthday cards as you can see in the last picture.  So a successful weekend.  First class sorted.  Yessssss!!  I think I may do a couple more with different scenes - beach scene, mountain scene.  I'll post them if I do.  Thanks for looking today.

For a Special Friend

for a special birthday.  This is another book card for my friend Anne who officially becomes a Senior Citizen at the end of January and is looking forward to a long and happy retirement.  I came across the Kaisercraft papers last week whilst browsing in a craft shop.  I hadn't seen this collection before and I fell in love with it on sight.  I have loved making it.  Now I have to find just the right size box for it to travel safely to the other side of the world.  Anne and I went to school together, lost touch after leaving school and then found each other again about 3 or 4 years ago after about  45 years.  We picked up like we never missed a day.  We are hoping she and her husband will make a trip out here to NZ for a holiday now that time out of work isn't going to be a problem.  Hope the New Year has started well for you all and thanks for stopping by today.
