First Card Class at Ransomes Sports & Social Club - Summer Mini

These lovelies are Nicola's creations from the evening!
Lorraine, very pleased!

Bex, Rachael, Maggie and Jo
This Class was going to be a trial run held in the bar at Ransomes Sports and Social Club but in the event I had 10 lovely ladies come along so it was a good thing that we were given a great side room instead as it was polling day and the bar was a little busy!

The Scrappers!
We arrived and started to set up and before we knew it all the ladies had arrived and it was all go! Tracey and Dawn prefer to scrapbook so I prepared a little package each for them with papers, ribbons and embellishments and they were thrilled!  I was amazed at what they had come up with, Tracey having completed almost 4 layouts in the two hours with Dawn not far behind! Not so for Mike, who had bought them along, and Paul who took all that time enjoy a pint of beer in the bar, escaping from all us crazy ladies!

It looks chaotic, but creativeness is like that!
Jo Hard at Work
We had a wide range  of experience levels at the class from absolute beginners to expert and all made fantastic cards to take home with them.  It is very rewarding to see someone who has never made a card before to go away with
Lorraine, Sandra, Janice, Tracey and Dawn
something good enough to send to someone!

Everyone seemed to have a good time and some have already booked their places on the next one on 31st May.  If you would like to come along please contact me by email on or at Facebook via the link.
