The final card made at yesterdays workshop, I gave each person an open invitation to use any products in the room. There were several different colours of cardstock which we had used during the day, pens, ink pads, lots of sets of stamps, including all 4 FREE Sale A Bration sets, a large selection of punches etc.

Zena's card
Zena chose to use the Pheasant from Autumn Days, sentiment from a retired Hostess set and retired DSP Holiday Treasures. This was finished off with chocolate chip Grosgrain ribbon.

Julie's card

Julie used the baby pram strip from Hostess level 3 gift 'Queue Up', retired DSP Holiday Treasures and sentiment from new SAB 2010 set Whimsical Words. The hearts punch made a 'window' to see the DSP underneath. The background is very pale but was stamped with delicate flower head from Very Versatile which I've only just realised was retired from the last catalogue !
Michelle chose to make another 'Easel' card and used the large heart from Love You Much stamp set. Hearts were stamped and punched and drinks strip was stamped from Hostess gift Queue Up. Sentiments were Curvy Verses inside and one from retired set Very Versatile on the outside. Unfortuantely the camera does not show the colours very well - Michelle has used Bravo Burgandy and Pink Passion which worked very well together. The words 'Mum' were cut freehand.
Carol's card

Carol chose DSP from Bella Bleu with Brocade Blue cardstock and ink on a Naturals Ivory card base. Sentiment was from Wonderful Words and flower topper from FREE Sale A Bration set Happy Moments. The buttons were created by hand using the 1/2" circle punch and all images were sponged with Brocade Blue ink.
Vicky's card

Vicky made her card from chocolate chip cardstock with DSP from retired Holiday Treasures. The flower was layered from DSP using 5 petal and Boho Blossoms punches. The sentiment was from retired set Very Versatile. Vicky had great fun with the very fine Stampin' Glitter covering everything in gold !!
I hope you agree these are lovely cards and I think everyone appreciated having a 'play' with products they might not nomally use. We may have to try this again at future workshops.
