The second card uses a paper doily from the craft store and the technique spotlight was the use of the paper flowers (which are usually flat) used in a larger dimensional flower. We also learned how to easily change the color of the flowers using drops of alcohol ink. It was a class favorite! Looks as though there is more to doing it than there actually is! I did not change the color of my flowers, but who knows what I'll do in my card re-do's!

On Monday, I gave my first card class of the year. I had 8 women total which is a great way to get into the swing of things again. Our theme was Valentines Day of course, since that is coming up very soon! I realized for the first time that I can think of, that I really enjoy making Valentine cards as much as Christmas cards. I guess it's because I can use all the glitter and bling that I want!!! I also decided to include a more "masculine" card in my class, since most of the women there will probably be giving a card to their husband, son or other male in their life. Guy cards are hard for me, but I still managed to sneak in a little bling!
I am working on my re-do's today and hopefully will get them posted.
I have a new photo editing software that I am trying to bond with, and even though I can rotate the pictures, when I upload them, they are not rotated.
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Always something.... :-(

Or did I mean to say Georgie?
He seems to think that my printer is his private perch to view the world go by. (birds and squirrels in particular!) He has to have a little of the window sheer pulled back for a better view. Another favorite of his is the sewing desk in my "office".
We should all have it this rough!

The first picture is of my unfinished nativity set that I started when I was doing ceramics. Ceramics was the start to this whole artistic thing that I tapped into but that's another long story for another blog post. ;-)
Then, I had to do a little decorating in the kitchen so this is my fridge-scape. (I invented a new word)
