Here is next weeks lesson, the flower that is, I am not capable of teaching the other stuff LOL, it is crafted in Vellum, painted with oil pastels and blended with Zippo lighter fluid! It's a lovely flower to make, comes together beautifully, I am sure you will enjoy.........the flower this week is Sally's choice.  I used a Mo Manning image "Finna the can find her here: coloured her and the background with "( awww.....can't remember the name, the coloured paints in little pots.  The paints are glittery and are the ones from Luminart before Mica colour) Everything glitters on this card, I tried to make it look as tho Finna had floated down in a bubble to land on the waterlillies in the pond :-))

I am entering it in the Papertake Weekly challenge, which calls for Pastel colours.

ps. to answer the questions from the last flower, mostly I give the cards I make as gifts, but lately have just been using blue tac to attach the flowers to the cards, then once the lesson is over, I remove them, put them on a long stem and have them in a vase in my dining room, others I have displayed in "shadow boxes" with glass fronts......some are in a box in the wardrobe waiting for stems

Teardrop flower

Last week we decided at class that you ladies could all take a turn at choosing the following weeks flowers for us to do, this was Sue's choice, and a good one too, it turned out really well I was pleased with it, I used the maidenhair fern to go with it.

Hello friends, here is the lesson for Monday nights class, the Frangipani, it is a very popular tree in Australia, you can cut a branch off, stick it into the ground and it just grows, mind you it takes years!! but the flowers and perfume are worth the wait.  It is created with the large balloon punch and the large heart. 
I have my two lovely Granddaughters here today, they are having a sleepover so I will have fun
Love Jenni..........
Hope you all have a great weekend too

I am going to enter into the Papertake weekly challenge, I don't often get to take part in challenges, but this one calls for the use of punches!! the challenge name is "fancy a punch?"' and you can find it here:
and also in the ABC DT CHALLENGE
