'FFFC!!! YeY!!!' Workshop Creations Shared - Thankyou.

Week 3 and 4 (whoops!)
Good morning everyone, afternoon and evening too!!
I said i would share the creations that the lovely ladies created at the workshops held recently - a little later than expected I know but apologies in abundance from me to you I have not been 100% but YeY!!! it's deffo business as usual again - so here goes.

The first workshop's creation was the pinky tunnel card as pictured above x
Now we did go over time a little but everyone went home with a tunnel card 99% finished - they only had a little titivating to do at home.  And the ladies were really pleased cos I shared all the tips I have discovered when creating the blooms for the wreath x

This (above) is the lovely Maxcine's divine pinky tunnel card - Maxine was the 1st to send in her finished creation, I loVe where she has her silver flower metal charm (dangling down from the top of the aperture)  And the 4 corners of her card look fabulous especially as they are all different but at the same time perfectly balanced x
Thank you for sharing your Tunnel card with us all Maxcine xoxo

Now below is the lovely Andrea's stunning pinky tunnel card - lol mine and Andrea's attempts to get these gorgeous piccys from Andrea to me n my blog failed soooo many times - OH the joys of technology!!
But we succeeded didn't we Andrea hunny!
And here they are - close-ups to for the finer details x
I loVe Andrea's button themed corners n that great big knotted ribbon in the top left corner.

Scrummy blooms and if you peek closely into the aperture you can spy the pinky pin detail behind 'just for you'

Button detail here and WoWzer hedgehog style centre for her bloom.

Thank you for sharing your pinky tunnel card with us all Andrea x

Now for the piccys from the butterfly wreath workshop.
I'll show you the first ever butterfly wreath I created first.

Each layer of this soft tone on tone butterfly wreath has been gently inked with various 'pinks' distress inks so you can just see all the different layers of each butterfly wings x
 And this zingy, zesty butterfly wreath was the one we all created in the workshop!!!

Get ready for a piccy feast - I want to share everyone's creations with you all.
And you will be blown away with how different each wreath looks - we all had the same stash to use and all followed the same steps - but as you will see we all have our own creative style n look which is fabulous cos it gives the diversity of all these amazing finished wreaths x
Ready.....Steady..... GO................
Hi there ladies!!! - Crafting session in full swing x

And lastly a wreath created but not at the workshop - but at home after the workshop!!!
Just look at this fabulous piccy sent to me by Andrea Moorehouse
Exquisite vintage blooms n butterflies x
Yum Yum x 

Aren't they all fabulous!

Well it's offski on the skool run for me, but at least it isn't like yesterday's run - BLIZZARDS!  yep an actual blizzard.  It was quite scary but thankfully a couple of miles down the road and believe it or not no snow at all - it's like living in a different world up here on our little hill - literally!
