 What a wonderful time we had at the card class on April 15th.  Brianna our daughter, came for a visit and to the card class.  I was really busy and forgot to take pictures (I know.... how could I do that!?!) so we took a picture when we got home.  And the fun did not end there.  That night we also created the cute mini baskets just perfect for a colored egg and some chocolate for our special loved ones.  Contact me thru my website (to reduce spam emails)  if you would like to make this or any other project you see here on my blog!  By the way you can shop there too for all your favorite CTMH products!

3-D Bunny card class 4-19-11

 This is the wonderful 3-D Bunny card that was the project for our craft class on 4-19-11.  Because the project had a great deal of detail work, there were only two openings in both the 9 and 10:00 classes which were both filled.  Normally my classes are the first and third Fridays of the month but with this being a card many wanted to send out for Easter, we scheduled an additional class just for these cute bunnies.  Next class is May 6th (which is my husbands birthday).  Please check back here or with the Chetek Community Center next week for samples of the cards.  Hoping my creative mind will guide me in the direction of "cat/dog/horse" theme as requested!  Wish me luck!  Thanks for stopping.  Dont forget to add your comment!  Theresa
