Bookworm


I had my friend round again yesterday for her cardmaking class. She thoroughly enjoyed herself. We made three cards in three hours. I make samples up first and then we both make them. The challenge for me is finding cards to make without stamped images that need colouring. Not sure if we will progress to colouring some day. Also she doesn't like cute images!!  One of the cards we made was an anniversary card for her husband. She did so well but when she had finished I found her laughing as she had put the image on so the card opened back to front! She left it like that as she said it would amuse him and he would know that she had made it.

Now I love reading, though since I started blogging I don't read as many books as I used to. I adore this image and she has been waiting to be coloured for some time.
