My class is off schedule this month because I was on vacation! Woot Woot! We went to Maui and stayed at the Honua Kai resort in Ka’anapalli Beach. It was amazing and much needed! Here is a pic of me and the hubby …
On to class – I had a great turn out this time and had new faces. It was great! The cards were different and despite the time of year, not Halloween cards.
This card I loved. I have to admit casing it from Connie Tumm, who I think is amazing. It seemed simple enough, but I think my girls wanted to kill me for all that fussy cutting and using the Big Shot 4 times on one card!
