Today I have something a little different again. Two cards that were not created by me but by my niece and her son. My niece asked if they could come over and make cards for her daughters Communion on Sunday and so I spent all yesterday evening teaching them the basics including using the Grand Caliber. Do they realise how priviledged they were I wonder: my GC is my pride and joy and is used so often now, I am close to having conversation with her...lol! Yes, she is female, she is a thing of beauty afterall :)
Anyway, Mum got into the colouring and card making and my great nephew sat happily with the GC diecutting the items for the cards and also some butterflies and flower petals for the cake topper. He did really well bless him and thoroughly enjoyed himself (my great nephew has some learning difficulties and so it was wonderful to see him creating so happily). Here are the cards; I think you will be impressed with them as they are, afterall, a first ever attempt. I just wish I had been this good when I first started.
A vellum butterfly was placed underneath the paper butterly to give it more dimension and movement.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing something from a 'newbie'. Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
Thank you to those who have entered their Bookmarks into the challenge already, they look absolutely fabulous (no pun intended!) Hugs Linda
