Card for todays workshop and for downline meeting

This is the standing view
The shadows were not good
so I took them laying down
as well 
Again standing. Shadows.

Here is one of the 2 cards I am making at todays workshop and at my downline meeting on Tuesday night. I am showing you the same card open and closed twice, One is standing up and the other is laying down because of the shadows.
I almost think it has too much bling but not sure because I really like it.
I found the idea on my leaders group and decided to play with it a bit.
Front/closed view
Inside/open view

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like the cards.

If you have not attended then join us anyway, Its easy, Cut 5 strips 4 1/2 x 1 1/2 and then cut each one diagonal corner to corner and then place them starting in the center of the card and work your way around. 

This was the first one I made
I got it from someones blog
Wish I could remember
I'd send you to her blog
for the video. 
Enjoy and have fun creating. I want to see quite a few of these. Remember this one will have a prize attached to it. A free pack of Designer Series Paper, The new one in the holiday mini. The winter frost.

Christmas card from my Christmas class today.

Here is one of the cards for todays Christmas Card Class. This card uses the new bow maker. I love that die. Its easy to use and creates a beautiful bow for any card or for your packaging needs. 

I would also like to share that Samson, Our Parrot, Got to come out and play yesterday. The kids are gone for the weekend and we let him out to play. He always gets to get a shower when he comes out to play. Slim takes him in the shower and he flaps his wings while slim sprays him down. 

We always know when he is ready to shower because he will ask for a shower. That means he's ready to go back in his cage. This bird is like one of the family in this house. 
Thanks for stopping by today and for letting me share Samson with you.
