Mother's Day Card Class!


Hello!  Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Mine was pretty good!  We enjoyed two friend's kid birthday parties on Saturday!  And the rest of the weekend was spent by me studying!  If your wondering where have I been it's with my nose in the books!  :>

Today I am home alone so I can have time to study!  I am one of those people who need quiet to really learn and with two kids it isn't really quiet much!  I've started my time alone not studying but a quick clean up of the house.  In my defense you can't really study with a messy house right?  Plus it's so much faster to clean when your all alone!

I wanted to pop in and share a card class that I did last Tuesday.  In January I joined a yneighbors mom's group that is very close by.  I decided to join to meet more mom's in my area, and with being home with Carter even though we go out every Wednesday morning he would ask for more playdates  With winter I wondered how much more he would bug me!!  I thought it would be good for him to get out with new kids and with this group there is babysitting for the kids so it would be a great for me to have some time away.  I've really enjoyed meeting new mom's and Carter really enjoys it too. Plus he runs around the big area so much that he can't wait for his nap that day!  :>  On Tuesday I did a Mother's Day Card Class for them!  This is my second time doing a card class and my first time with non crafters!  I was nervous but am happy to share that it went really well!  There were 10 ladies each making 2 cards and they all had really good things to say!  They loved the cards and I could tell that they really enjoyed themselves.  Which is even more important!  I made 3 cards and let them choose which two they would make:



For my regular blog readers you may recognize the cards, well sort of. I changed them up a bit but was inspired by some previous cards that I made.  They all have a little bit of stamping, patterned paper, and border punches.  The cards give them an experience with a few things!  I don't know if you can tell but the last card has stickles on the rose, they really enjoyed the stickles and it made me rethink stickles and how I should try using it more!  Also the middle card was the most popular!  :>

Well I am off to get back to studying!  I have a very busy week but can't wait to be done my test so I can sit down and create just for fun!  :>
