A wonderful weekend

This weekend, though I did work Saturday morning for a mandatory tax season kickoff process seminar, I got to do some crafting.  First, I got to (finally) kick off my 2012 season of fundraising classes.  This class was for January but got cancelled due to multiple illnesses among the participants.  So, I rescheduled it for March.  It was a small class, but it's a start for the year.

What's great about having a class - my hubby cleans the whole main floor when guests come over.  So, he spent Friday night cleaning the main floor and, while my class was going on, my hubby's dad took my car for a good cleaning (inside and out).  It was so nice!!

We used the Stampamajig for the polar bear Joy Fold card.  It inspired me to finally make a card I've been planning for a couple of weeks.  I saw this stamp sent in the $1.50 bin at Michael's.  It's a Studio G set with two little birds and a "Birds of a Feather" sentiment.

I used my Stamamajig to align the birds up on the wire I drew.  The version for my shop has the centre bird popped out on foam tape, but the version for the Smiley Card Team for Kards of Kids at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children, it was glued flat to the card front.

The colours on this card were inspired by the Kards for Kids February challenge photo: Let it be Spring.

I'm late, but better late than never!

I also worked on my custom order, which is mucho late, but I have an understanding customer.  (Phew for that!)  All the bases are done - they are just waiting on me to cut out the last of the embellishments for them.
