My First Assignment !!!

I said in a previous post that I'd won an online class at My Creative Classroom,I choose to do Get Creative with Punches.The class had already started so I needed to do some catching up but with one thing and another I just couldn't get started.I finally found time this morning to do the first assignment  which was to make two cards using a variety of different punches and stitching with a vintage feel.

This card I used four different punches,the snowflakes and border punches are Martha Stewart and the oval and scalloped oval are both Stampin'Up. I only used scraps of paper from my scrap box and the sheet music was from a book I bought from an antique shop,the book only cost £1 it must have 50 sheets in it,very economical !!! I added some lace and buttons for that vintage look and the 'Let It Snow' sentiment was from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The second card we were suppose to use the leftover bits from the first card but because I'd used scraps anyway I just used some leftovers from my scrap box. The fancy butterfly punch is an X-Cut and the other butterfly and small tag are both Stampin'Up.
Now I've got going and finished the first assignment,I'm looking forward to starting the second one,hopefully I will catch up soon. They are very accomadating though and I have been offered an extension,which I'll probably need !!!
The Create Free mini book I started is still work in progress but I've only got three pages left and will show you the whole book when it's completely finished.
Tomorrow,Rach and I are off to LB Crafts for a Melt Art workshop which uses UTTE and beeswax,this will be a new technique for me so looking forward to that !!!

Thanks again for all your kind comments,I really appreciate it.
