In my time...

Just want to share two cards I have made in my first 
classes of Quilling and Parchment


Making these has taken me away from the computer and given me
a lot of ME time, hence I have left a lot of design
for the moment.  The projects are not perfect but
first one, not too bad...mmm.....




Socialising and learning new skills has been great
and a lovely bunch of ladies I crafted with before
caring for my dad.

Hope  you enjoy them...
