*My Favourite Card of the Christmas Card Classes*

I taught my Christmas Card Class #2 at the Scrapbook Pantry on Wednesday morning and again last night. The ladies who have been taking my classes are superstars! I totally enjoy their company and I hope that they enjoy my classes! In between work and teaching on Thursday I managed to finish my designs for Christmas Card Class #3 which is in late November.

Now I can start to focus on some other stuff including figuring out what I am going to work on at the Calgary Classic next weekend. An entire weekend of card making with some good friends. I'm so looking forward to it.

But those of you who know me, know that I don't often craft anywhere but at home. I can pack some stuff up but I always end up missing the stuff I really want and then sit and do nothing or watch the others I am crafting with. I really want to make some cards next week so packing could take a full week. I really have no idea what to take.

This is probably my favourite card from the first 2 Christmas Card Classes. I was inpsired by a card I saw of Charmaine's and used her idea for this class. The American Crafts ribbon that we have at the store were absolutely perfect for this design! I added some white Bazill Bling cardstock (on a black card) and some Imaginisce glitter brads and RubOn.

Charmaine, I hope you don't mind that I shared this card with my class.... they all loved it as much as I do!

It's Friday, so I have had the day off from work... took both animals to the vet for their shots, then Alex to the orthodontist, then off to run a few errands. We are heading out to dinner tonight and I have no plans until Sunday when I have to make two pies to take to Thanksgiving dinner at my Mother-in-law's house. Hopefully our weekend will remain rather quiet... perhaps I'll even find some crafting time!

Happy Friday All!

Your card is adorable.

Have fun at the CC next week. I went last year and I had a good time. I have a hard time being creative around other people so I didn't do much but visit. Oh and stamp images....and visit and eat and visit! If they are doing the shoe box swaps you will love that. It was great to try some new techniques that way. Enjoy.

Nancy, love your new cards that you have posted lately. Sorry I don't get to visit much---I'm really busy trying to get things made for organizing and so far it's going great---now for the new craft room, if only I could wiggle my nose and it was done. Hugs, Pat
