Sliding in one last class!

That's right...I'm slipping one last class in on the 31st! I tried my best to get the schedule right but those darned holidays get things all wonky!

I decided to design around the idea of "pockets"....so that's the class theme (for now).

Card 1 is made with paper from Crate Paper called "torn".

It is a surfer/masculine paper and I absolutely love the colors.

It closes with baker's twine. And inside is this...

Card 2 is made with My Mind's Eye paper "Good day Sunshine"
and a little strip of Basic Grey's "Eva" The brown tag slips inside the pocket.

And card 3 is made with 3 Bugs in a rug paper called "bandana". The parchment tag slips into the front. The 4 1/2 inch scallop square doesn't open. If you are having trouble reading the sentiment on the front, it reads:
Thinking of You

Phew! That was a good weekend of work. I also planted all my pots on our deck and in the front of the house...it's looking good!

Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend!

Card 3...Hooray!

That's right...it's card 3! Yes, it's about 4 weeks old (hang head in shame) but it has been sitting on my craft table holding out for a better ribbon, and I never delivered.

I'm still hoping I can find the right ribbon, 'cuz this one just isn't making the grade.

On a more personal note, thanks for the get-well wishes...I am all better and fully recovered from my recent bout of strep.

Hope you're have a good week!

Aunt Chris

To all celebrating moms out there...hope you enjoyed your mother's day! I had a very nice one, spent with my guys and then later my extended family.

Since yesterday was also my aunt's birthday I made her a card out of some extra pieces from a previous class, and wow! I really like the way it turned out. So much so, that I copied the measurements and plan on making this card with different paper for a class later on...or maybe sooner!I have to give a huge shout out to my husband who found my favorite candy bars, (despite the company NOT having a website) and had them shipped from Logan, Utah. A super-yummy THANK YOU! O'Aggie Bars are the yummiest.
