Card Class #1

Several of our friends (my Mom included), have been bugging Dee and I about teaching a card class.  This has been going on for several years now and we finally decided to do just that.  So in early July invitations went out to the naggers our dear friends inviting them to join us for a two hour card class.  Most of these ladies have never made cards before so we started with the basics.  Dee and I assembled the kits prior to the class so all they had to do was stick things down -- no cutting or planning required.  We made four cards in the first class -- a birthday card, two all-occasion cards, and a thank you card.  We laughed, we created, we snacked and we laughed some more.  It was a resounding success and the group decided that they wanted to do this at least once a month!  So stay tuned . . . more cards are coming!
