Card Class with Doris

Life has a way of getting in the way sometimes but I finally found time to edit the photos of the Oh So Cute cards I made at a card class I took this week. Doris is a fellow CTMH consultant that I just met. She is one of those wonderful people that  is just as sweet as can be. She makes you feel at home and you feel like you've been friends forever. She has been with Close To My Heart for 20 years and she's so willing to share what she's learned from her years in the business, I'm sure I'll learn alot from her.

 This fun card is made with the Bowwow stamp set. It's a stamp set that I thought was cute but hadn't bought it yet. It's on my list now! Its just so much cuter in person. And I love that you can make the dog any color you need. We have a black lab so my next card will be with a black dog. I think this will be perfect for kid cards, guys or especially for my dog sitter. I'll be using these cards to put her checks in when I pay her. I'll add a Thanks or Thank you to the thought bubble.  Oh, I almost forgot to tell you about the Natural Hemp we used on the side. It took me back to the macrame days. We braided the hemp and tied a dog bone to the braid. It just adds that little something.

And Oh My Goodness! How sweet is this card. Whats sweeter than ballons made out of Bakers Twine. I can't believe how easy these are to make. An adhesive circle and twine and your all set. You can change out the papers to any scraps you have in your stock. I'll add a sentiment to the top when I decide who I'm giving it to. Its a great card to have a small supply on hand and then add the sentiment to fit the occasion.

Graduation season is upon us and this card is perfect. If your like me you have friends in many different school districts that will be graduating. Everything is black and white on this card except the color strip. Our school colors are maroon and white so thats what I did here. But the school colors in Doris's town are green and white. You just change the color strip to your color. This is a great card to mass produce.

If you haven't taken a card or layout class from your local Close To My Heart consultant check into it today. You learn new techniques and have fun in the process. If your in my area check out my Workshop/Crop tab at the top to see the classes I have coming up. And I want to THANK Doris again for a great afternoon of learning and sharing!

Happy Scrapping
