I know I have been away for a very long time but I am hoping things have settled down enough that I can get back into the 'groove' of things. Between my son, daughter, grand-daughter, husband and myself, our whole family has had such a long stretch of colds and illnesses that I was beginning to wonder if we would ever break out of it...lol. I also took some time to concentrate a bit on my CTMH business and finally have my first Stamper 6 Group up and running which I am very excited about. I am working with such a super group of women and look forward to each of our get-togethers with gusto.
Anyway, on to today's cards............
My good friend Darcy Magbanua asked me if I would be interested in hosting a workshop at this year's annual Scrap For Heart. This is a huge event each year with all the proceeds going to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. I said "sure" and began my search for what I would do for this. Naturally I began checking my fave blogs and it turns out this was perfect timing! This month My Sketch World is hosting their 2010 Sketch-a-thon. From February 1 - 20, Lucy will post a different sketch each day, rotating between card sketches and layout sketches. You have until March 3 to upload your creations to have your name entered into the drawing for a chance at some super prizes. So, I used a couple of Lucy's sketches to make my workshop samples AND I am able to enter them into the Sketch-a-thon contest. I love it when I can combine 'challenges'. Well, you only have 45 minutes for your workshop at Scrap For Heart and that has to include set-up and clean-up time. This only leaves you with 25-30 minutes TOPS for the actual creating....YIKES!! Because of this time frame and the fact that I have never put on one of these before, I have kept the card the participants will make very simple; I just hope it isn't too simple. The first card in this post is the one the participants will actually make. The second card is another sample to show the participants a variation on how it can be done.
