I had pretty much given up on being able to find anyone around here. That is, until I had dinner with some college friends last week. We always have a good time, but when one of my friends mentioned that she went to a card making class once a month, I almost screamed. (Actually, I think I might have a little bit). She invited me to her class the following week (this past Thursday). I couldn't wait!
So it turned out to be about a 30 minute drive, which is still significantly better (and cheaper) than a 2-hour drive each way. This was a Stampin' Up class and the ladies there were so much fun. I had such a good time and we made some really cute cards:
I learned some new techniques and (of course) ordered a few things from the catalog so I could continue the awesomeness. By the time I left, I felt like I had known these ladies all my life. I am really glad I went, and I'm looking forward to next month's class!
On a side note, here are a couple of other projects I've worked on lately:
|A birthday card for my mom|
|A valentine my sister and I made at an Archiver's demo|
I have another little project that I've been working on ... thanks to a YouTube video. I'll show you that one in a separate post.
