Our May Craft Club cards

I am so sorry that I am late in putting these up on the Blog, but I have just upgraded my mobile phone to one of these new fangled Android ones.

Well! they say they are easy to use but to some dimwit like me not having any instructions on how to use use it caused me no end of problems, one of which was how do I get the pictures I took at craft group onto my PC.

Easy you say - email them - no signal at home, so that was a no no. Hook up the USB link, PC don't recognise the phone.

After calling in at the shop where I got the dammed thing and getting nowhere I then tried phoning 3 network - yes it is easy - arrrrrrrrrrrrgh - all I had to do was select disc drive.  Told you I was a dimwit.

Well now I can share the lovely cards we made at the group.

Card number one is taken from a design using Micro Dots. I think this would also work well as a pricked card.  I chose a lovely peach rose decoupage topper and created a backing paper to go with it.

The first picture shows just the card, the second shows it in situ in the craft conservatory at the Cranswick Garden Centre.


















Our second card is a new design that I am working on using the Easel card style.  I chose a lovely picture of a Venice scene, created a stylised topper and tag and also a backing paper. The topper is designed in three panels that can be decoupaged.

 This shows the card as it stands in the easel position.

This picture shows the card open.

There was also a separate panel with a verse on that
can be used as an insert.












I hope you like these cards.

Our next craft group is Saturday 2 June but as this is the Jubilee Weekend I am just planning a Play Day.

If anyone wants to call in and play with us please feel free to come along.
