Last night I went to a card workshop put on by a Close to My Heart demonstrator.
You make 5 cards for 5 dollars.
It was a fun evening out and the girl teaching the class was really nice.
These two cards are my favourite out of the 5. I did change these up a bit from her display cards.
For the first one I just changed the top and bottom papers as I liked the darker shade on the bottom.
For the second card, I only put on 3 of the 4 flowers as the 4th covered up my scallops. I also used the other side of the bottom pattern paper as I didn't like the side we were suppose to use.
Yes I am picky and have to change things up.
My friend teased me as the 3 flowers were coloured with copics. One copic colour per flower. My friend knows me well, as she said, You are going to have trouble just using one colour and not shading it, lol.
Honestly I was thinking of adding more shading when I got home....but I will just let it be, lol.
Here are the next 3.
I didn't change too much, except on the "Hello" card I used cream paper for the flower to sit on as opposed to the orangey-red paper she had cut out. I thought the flower stood out more on the cream paper.
The other cards I more or less kept the same.
I also stamped on the envelopes as did all the other ladies.
As you know it isn't my usual type of cards, but enjoyed spending the evening with a friend, getting to enjoy the company of other creative women and it was fun to make some more simple cards :)
The girl that was teaching the class is moving to Germany to teach.
So she was selling off some of her supplies.
When I seen these books I got a bit excited as I have had my eye out for them for a while.
I know they are very pricey (if you can even find them).
She sold each book for $10.00 each.
My girls laughed at me when I told them, as they were just picturing me grabbing them up before anyone else could get their fingers on them, lol.
Onto My Day:
Spent the whole day with Heather and Kristy.
Did some errands together. Then Heather wanted to try out a new recipe for supper.
Then Kristy did a bit of baking.
I heard Heather ask when is the next time we are going to visit Ashley, because she misses her :(
A few hours later I get a text from Ashley asking if she could come over tonight.
I told her of course and you never have to ask, this is your home.
Wayne and I are surprised that Kristy and Heather didn't go have a sleep over at Ashley's tonight :)
As Heather doesn't have to work tomorrow. Mind you Ashley does.
Hope you all had a very creative Thursday :)
