March is for Blooms!!

Ugghh….    This morning’s latest snow event and yet another snow day off from school confirm my impression that Spring may not be here yet, but you can’t keep a girl from dreaming about warmth, sunshine and the floral blooms of Springtime! This month’s card making class features flowers:

I’ve been playing around with all kids of fun techniques in creating these cards: alcohol markers, watercolor painting, embossing vellum, white wash on Kraft, paper piercing and faux stitching. I’d love to share these with you!  Join this month’s card class and we’ll make 2 each of these five cards for a total of 10 cards plus envelopes.  All ribbons, shimmer trim, sparkles and pearls provided, as well as precut card stock pieces and card bases.

Join me on Sunday afternoon, March 8th, at 2pm for some tea and coffee, cake, cookies and crafting while we create these lovely cards. For those that prefer a weekday evening, you are welcome to join me on Friday evening, March 6th at 7pm and complete your cards then, or take a kit home to do yourself.

Workshop is limited to 8 participants. RSVP by March 5th so that I may have your materials prepared for you.

Friday, March 6th, at 7pm

As always, you can purchase this kit to work on at home.  Everything will be pre-cut, necessary pieces will be stamped, and all accessories included.  I will provide you with a photocopy of the cards so that you can create them at home.  The prices are as follows:
