Cards for class

Have decided I need to take a break - am beginning to stress out over this class - choosing which cards to make in class is proving to be a challenge - we have two hours - there is nothing worse that not having enough time to complete the cards but don't want to make them so simple that the participants are finished and looking for more..........

Border cards and a laugh!

Continuing to work on cards for the class - and have decided it would be a good thing to label my border embossing long have I had them? Let's just say.....a long time......and only now have realized I have one that is supposed to be a single row of different sized solid circles and instead it is a row of buttons......go figure! Have ordered a second set - to be given away as prize at end of class, so I should be able to see if that set is the same as mine or if it has the single row of circles.....will keep you posted!

Getting prepared for card workshop

Have been asked to teach a two hour card making class - have been struggling with class content - finally came to a decision and have spent the last two days preparing packets for participants (finished that today!!! WHOOHOOO!!!) - have to write a description of same so thought it would be much easier if I got everything ready first then will have time to spend writing without feeling pressured - am making class small (8 maximum) so I can spend time with people who need assistance - nervous but excited too.....would love to turn this into a monthly class.

Clean And Simple challenge FTL130

Another challenge on the clean and simple blog - this one took me a long while - found the patterned paper, then finding a ribbon to "match" proved a challenge, then took four attempts to stamp the sentiment - some days I should just stay out of my craft room!!!!!

Sketch challenge on Gina K

worked yesterday

Didn't post yesterday as I worked - yikes - work was okay but getting home was a little scary - very slow going and roads were a nightmare - yes they had sanded but intersections were like skating rinks - still freezing cold this morning but roads a lot better.
Here is another card from the weekend creative session.
