Greenhouse Garden Workshop

Hi all,

Well I hope all's well with you and you're getting back to normal now that the snow has melted away.

It was my first workshop of the New Year yesterday, and I think the ladies had a fun time making a couple of cards using the Greenhouse Garden stamp set. We did a lot of playing at the beginning to practise lining up the two-step stamp set using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, so much so we over ran the workshop by more than an hour and a half! lol... oops. Anyway, the ladies did a great job and managed to create the cards below beautifully.
