Followers.... thank you xx

I'm back, I have so missed you all.
 Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post :)) Just a quick update... my sister is at home receiving excellent care from family and professionals :)
 I'm hoping to get back into the swing of crating , even though my Mojo is on a go slow and hopefully I'll get round to visit you  soon.
I volunteer to run  the Craft Croup  at an Assisted Living Complex which is held every Wednesday from 10.30 - 13.30 but by  last Tuesday afternoon I still had no idea what we would be making!!
 I have recently bought some JOFY stamps  and one of them was featured in  an article by Joy Firth Young in Octobers Craft Stamper... so I cased it... cased?!  more like copied!. By now it was Tuesday evening  and I was beginning to thing we'd have to clean out the craft cupboard instead of making cards!..  Thank goodness for Craft Stamper  and JOFY.
Here's my interpretation using JOFY stamps JM10 and the Happy Birthday from JOFY14... I managed two!! very easy cards.
The second one used up some hammered .splatted card from my scrap box
 here's the lovely inspiration from JOFY.

 The ladies in my group have very different health, mobility and dexterous needs, some of the ladies have belonged to the group since it started three years ago and some  are very new to the craft world.  Most of them are new to stamping, using DI's , spray inks etc etc... I took over the group a few months ago.
 here's a sample of what they did.

The girl's all had fun ...I think... but getting the background done on card no. 1  proved to be a tad tricky!... but I think they did a wonderful job. I didn't manage to get a photograph of every ones work.... sorry girls. In case you were wondering if my lesson plan is ready for tomorrow ...  the answer is no! flying by the seat of me pants again!
 Take care, thank you for looking and leaving comments it is much appreciated.

Wow Sue, what a fabulous collection of cards from your ladies! They are all lovely and I'm anyone being lucky enough to receive one of those is going to be well chuffed!

I'm so glad your much loved sister is now at home. Sending positive thoughts and a big hug to you both.

Great to see you back and pleased your sister is being well cared for. Those cards look good and I'm sure the ladies all have fun on these days which is the main thing isn't it? Good luck with the 'lesson plan' this week.

Wonderful cards both of them and isn't lucky there are places where we can find inspiration? Your ladies did extremely well on both cards. If you hadn't said so I would never have guessed that the first one was tricky. Good to hear your sister is in good hands and I bet the ladies had great fun.
