It's a 'Twofer' class!!

Evening Everyone
How are you all?
I have been very 'uncrafty' today, apart, that is, from putting away and tidying up after my hols.
I even managed to sort through some boxes of paper scraps and start a box for the Craft club at the School my Grandchildren attend.
My card tonight is from the last class that I taught whilst I was at SirStampalot
We jokingly referred to it as a 'Twofer Class', because you got two card ideas for the price of one!
The class was actually to teach the Punched Window Card technique (as learnt from Technique Time  Tuesday).
I coloured the panel with Distress Markers, cut the window with a nestie, and added some Faux Stitching.
I used a Dainty Dots M-Bossabilities folder to emboss the panel, but I managed to put the panel in the folder the wrong way round. I actually quite like this de-bossed effect.
As I don't like to waste anything, I turned the punched centre from my first card into a 'Spotlight' card. Hence the 'Twofer' of the title!!
I added a Woodware sentiment, some ribbon and extra coloured flowers as well as some stitching and gems.
Amazingly enough this was coloured before I saw the wonderful background paper that I have also used. It could have been made to match, but was just one of those very happy accidents.
I hope that the guys are coping in the tea making department without me.
We always joke that the toilet paper usage halves once I leave when they only managing to make 3 cups of tea in a day instead of the one per hour that I plied them with lol.
I will get a lie in again tomorrow as I still have a couple of days holiday left before I return to work. I do need them after my intensive week of late nights and early starts.
I have a couple of commissions to work on so I am hoping that I might find some inspiration from somewhere tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend.
