Birthday day and another card making class

Well here I am back again after a fairly hectic kind of week for this one just gone.

I started off with a Diabetes committee meeting on the Monday 3rd November in the evening where we were sorting out things for the Diabetes Awareness week which is from the 18th November through to 24th November I think the dates are.

If you go to this link you will find out more of what happens around New Zealand for Diabetes Awareness week.

Tuesday afternoon i went to my local scrapbook/cardmaking shop at ScrapHappy Ashburton for our monthly Cuttlebug card making class. There were only two of us at this class this time , they were me and my friend Jan so as Alison our tutor said we would have personalised tutoring which we did and made 4 more lovely cards as well.The first card we made at class was on a brown base with a fawn cuttlebugged piece of card using one of my favourite Cuttlebug folders Swiss Dots, then using a white metallic piece of card we cuttlebugged this piece using the Divine swirls, we matted in light brown and used one part of the vintage corners dies. Very effective don't you agree.The second card was as a Christmas card and we used the Dandelion die and cut out the square on this reversible paper then we used the red danelion as the cenerpiece and the lovely brown toned flowers to the center of this. Another simple and effective way for a christmas card.The third card was using the vintage corner dies the swirly ones this time and we added red rhinestones to the centers here and also used a chipboard scalloped circle with the words Make a wish but the "make a" part came off but still looks pretty good don't you think?? The last card was using the bird call embossing folder which I had been considering buying for a while but didn't know what I could do with it so using it at class made me finish up by buying it .

Wednesday 5th November was my birthday but it was a very low key day. We went through to Christchurch shopping for stamping related goodie. We went to Denny's restauarant for a lovely lunch and all in all it was a great day.

Take a look at the cards I did I am proud of what I did this time
