Craft club on Thursday Night

Here's a preveiw of what we are making in my craft class tomorrow night - now you can see why these stamps were at hand for my last post LOL.

This is inspired by a project in Craft Stamper last January by the very talented Debbie Dolphin. Debbie had cut her own chipboard butterfly to make the notes board but since I would have to do that for 12 people I have adapted my version to something more manageable.
These are Mountboard pieces about 51/2 x 4 1/2 which have been inked with Tattered rose, worn lipstick and brushed corderoy distress inks. The stamps are Butterfly Beauties by stampendous, rings and ribbon from stash - notes is stamped with a studio g set and clip by Tim Holtz.
The ladies who come can buy the kit or do their own thing using my stamps but their own inks. Its an easy going session - I dont profess to be a tutor but I do like getting folks together to craft. If you are interested in the session we run on the first Thursday of every month - it costs £2-50 for the session which includes rent and refreshments then the kit for this session is £1 - usually I tell them what to bring so we use up our own copious stash instead of buying more! next session in April is decorating a chipboard Wellie!
Ive just realised I need to chomp the corners on the notes bit as all the mountboard corners have been chomped with my Mums corner chomper - another thing I so neeeed lol.
Im a bit nervous at posting this - firstly as Ive scheduled it as Im actually at work now and secondly cos I know Debbie is going to see it! arrgghhhh the pressure LOL.
Anyway hope its worked and it is really wednesday and you are having a brilliant day :0)
