Butterfly Wishes!

Good Evening Blogging Friends,  I hope this evening finds you well and that you've had a good day.
Thank you so much to all who have commented on my last card, love reading them and hugely appreciate your time in visiting my blog.

This is just a quick post tonight to let you see a couple of cards made by two of my clients whilst at the little craft group I run at work.  We are only a few, and sometimes it's a bring your own, whatever that might be, craft, some folk bring knitting or cross stitch, and at other times we make cards.  As there is no funding to do this I just use my own stash and everyone pays a £1 which we save in the hope that at some point we can buy basic materials. I am a firm believer in the therapeutic benefits of crafting of any kind and it is quite plain to see that my clients really enjoy the couple of hours spent doing this, especially the card making as they go off with their own creation and feeling good about achieving it. Here are the two cards;

Once again the photos are not great, sorry, maybe one day I'll manage to take better ones.
The cards were made with a selection of Hunkydory Button Cute crafting kit, and gems, ribbons and lots of sparkle.
Although I made suggestions, really everyone designed there own card and had quite definite ideas. One card was for a sister's 60th and the other for a girlfriend.  Yes there are two guys in the group.

So there we are, just a little taste of what I do some of the time at work.
Hope to be back soon
Good Night, Kate x
