Nearly didn't bother to post this card tonight as it would not scan properly, came out black and then I could not get a decent photo either. The card is a lot lighter brown than it looks on here, anyhow thought I would put it on Winter Wonderlands challenge which is for a Christmas card for a man, think I can get a way with a bit of ribbon for a fellow !
Yesterday I spent the day at a Stampin Up class,first time I have been to one, not my usual kind of thing but I did enjoy it, made two gift boxes,a gift bag, little book with pockets for four cards and the cards to put in it and two easel cards, quite a lot of stuff!. Everything was in kits and ready cut and scored which was fine, what I didn't like was that some of the stuff was also stamped for you and just needed colouring, I guess as it was quite a large class there would not be enough stamps for everyone to do their own stamping as we did have to wait for stamps to come round when we did need to stamp our own. I did like the cards we made and the colour combo of coffee and cream which is what inspired me to use it for my card. I had hoped to spend this afternoon catching up on atcs as I seem to "owe" them to everyone but it was not to be, visitors and phone calls put a stop to that but I'd rather see and talk to people when I have chance. Tonight I had to watch Downton Abbey, I,m loving that programme !
