Fun Filled Class

What a great fun filled class we had last nightTammy will tell you she not only learned a few new techniques, but she also learned some new English words! 
She had the dubious pleasure of sitting at a table with her friend Liz and my sister-in-law Di.  Now put two English ladies together and they obviously speak English....makes sense right?  So when one asks Tammy to pass the Cellotape, how is she to know they mean the Scotch Tape?  Or to put this in the rubbish for them, well of course that's the garbage.  Wouldn't you have liked to have been a fly on the table there as Tammy worked at deciphering what on earth they were talking about.

Then at the other end of the table, we had the great pleasure of having some cottagers join our class this week.  As vacationing cottagers they didn't have much in the way of cardmaking tools with them, but with a Tombow glue runner and some borrowed tools they too shared many laughs with us.  Dawn was very happy to have learned a few new techniques last night and Marg enjoyed time with her daughter as they crafted together.  Not only that, in learning how to use the cropadile tool at class, Marg will now be able to use hers at home too, bonus!

As always our all important hometown ladies were there helping others as they learned how to negotiate the Cuttlebug and Spellbinder tools and folders.  If you weren't there, then you missed a laughter filled evening. 
Here's one of the cards they made last night. 
I call it my Happy Card, because looking at it makes me smile.
