Busy Busy Busy!

On a Thursday night I run a little adult craft group - it's good fun and nice to share my obsession with other people! The majority of them want to make cards but are very new to it so I have been putting together card kits - it does take a while but they do enjoy it. I'm trying to encourage them to try cards on their own now. Thought I'd share some of my makes:
