What Katie Did!

Who is a happy bunny then, 51 followers no less, I am overjoyed especially with all the marvellous comments that have been given on my last few posts.  I mentioned that Katie and I had a craft night and I finally tracked her down to take a photograph of her with her makes.  She is so proud of them and beams every time she speaks about them.

The gift bag is a regular post on Blogs and the card is a pinch from Craftylizscreations who in turn borrowed it from Helen,  but hey ho that is what crafting is all about.

The papers were a free download from Jak Heath 
When I have a "can't think of any to make moment" I make roses, butterflies and foliage from bits of card in my bit box so this is what Katie used, the ribbon and pearls were from my stock.
The gift bag was some card that I had around and Katie loved it,  it is double sided so she was doubly impressed, I cut everything out for her and demonstrated how to construct the card and bag, gave her some double sided tape and Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue, some advice along the way and that was it, a happy young lady.
She now wants to make it a regular happening and one of her friends wants to join in,  I am only too happy to get youngsters interested in crafting so I may enjoy it too.  I will have to browse all the blogs to see what will be easy for them to try but after Katie's attempts it will not be long before I have to try more difficult cards.
I posted the two 60th Wedding Anniversary cards to my brother in law today and hopefully they will arrive safely.  Hubby says I went into overkill with the packaging but I did not want them squashed in transit.  I now eagerly await his reactions, whether he likes them or not.  Will post the second card tomorrow.
Thank you one and all for all the comments on my posts Every morning I am up with the lark eager to see how many comments I have, sometimes even before I have my coffee, now that is something as I cannot engage my brain till I have my caffeine fix.
Take care my lovelies.
