Pocket Silhouettes and Happiness Shared (wiper card)

Good Afternoon All

Hope you're all having a wonderfull weekend so far.  Hopefully the sunshine will last a little while.

We had a great class this morning.  I'm not sure I was much loved though as both cards involved quite a bit of paper piercing (pricking).  I think that if my ladies could have pricked me instead of the card after I'd told them that not doing the paper piercing was NOT an option, especially on our first card, they would have gladly done this!  As I pointed out though it makes such a difference to the card that it would be a shame not to do it.  Besides which, I find paper piercing quite relaxing so do not understand the complaints. 

Our first card was a wiper card, quite a clever card really and a lovely surprise to the person opening it up when the image, in this case a butterfly, pop's up from inside.  Our second card was a very simple yet elegant card.
