April's class - Brigette relaxes.....

Good morning and thanks for stopping by!
Lucky me, I enjoyed a great day stamping with some girlfriends yesterday and was able to design the card for my April class! Here we have Brigette - I admire her because apparently she has seized a rare opportunity to relax in some shimmery bubbles! Hubby always tells me that I don't "know how" to relax. I keep telling him that maybe I could do that if he helped out a little more, allowing me the time to relax...... :)

One of my followers let me know that some people call this technique "outside the box" - works for me. This is the technique for my April class at DAT'S - using nesties to leave parts of your image "outside the lines".

It was so fun to make Brigette's bubbles pink and shimmery using DecoArt Glamour Dust - I ADORE this stuff and really must make more excuses to use it!

April Technique Workshop at DAT'S
Date: Saturday, April 16th Time: 1 pm
Cost: $7.00
Registration for classes at DAT'S for the months of April and May begins on Tuesday, March 22nd
Contact DAT'S for more details or to sign up
If you are taking my class, please bring the following:
cutter, your favorite adhesives, scissors, tweezers. I have listed the copics used for this card below - if you have your own copics, bringing your own will speed up the colouring process. However, you do not have to have your own copics to take this class.

And here is the inside of the card. I used the little accessory stamp that comes with Brigette. The sentiment is from Krafty Quotes #2, but I cut it in half to make it work with my card design. I had a fabulous time playing with this new Echo Park "For the Record" line! The patterns and design are so fun and there is still some available at DAT'S.
Today is Chester's Birthday, so we are having a family day, just hanging out. His official birthday party with his friends is next weekend since it is the March Break here and we've had poor results trying to have a party during the break in years past.

Hope you have a fabulous day, whatever you're doing!
Shanna :)
