I met up with 2 wonderful girlfriends, Christine and Cyndi, for a mini card class at Archiver's. It was great seeing them and sharing stories (I don't think I gave them much of a chance to talk yesterday as I had all kinds of stories about my trip to New England!). We had fun in the class making 9 mini cards (3 inches by 3 inches) and got to use some new product and learned a few new techniques. I generally like the classes at Archiver's...they are very well organized...they provide all tools and supplies and the prices for the classes are reasonable. Plus you get to shop after!!! Jennifer was our instructor yesterday and she did a great job.
Here are three of the little cards we made...
First was this Mickey Mouse punched card...very simple but cute with "Yippee" embossed with Zing yellow embossing powder.
We tied a little baker's twine around the top and that was it. Really cute for a gift enclosure for a child or Disney fan, huh? And I just loved the little touch of yellow with the red, black and white.
The second card was made on Kraft cardstock with a Unity Stamp:
And lastly, for today, is this cute little card we made with one of the Inky Antics sets that were designed for use with Inky Antic's honeycomb paper. You can see a card I made a few months back with those products HERE if you'd like (I used the inchworm set).
We colored and shaded with Copic markers which I have no idea what I'm doing with! LOL!
We used an EK Success border punch for the little pink paper and added some bling to it.
And here's the inside of this cute little card:
And what else made this day nearly perfect? I babysat my two cute grandkids while my daughter and son in law had a night out to themselves. They only went to dinner and were home within a couple of hours but at least they got a little time to themselves. Since I belong to AG and AG only it is a bit difficult when NBG needs me as he does not like me picking her up. But we had a little conversation last night about how NBG was sad and needed to be picked up but I was still his and he tolerated a few minutes. LOL!
Luckily NBG is already one independent little lady and is content to suck her fingers most of the time! :)
