Valentine's Day Patchwork & Upcoming Class!

This fun little "patchwork" card is going to be part of my 7 Days of Valentine's Class that will be on February 6th (just in time to give away 7 days' worth of valentines to that special someone!)--more details to come!

I was having a terribly hard time with this card because I'm not very good at mixing and matching different embellishments...nor I am good at using any embellishments other than ribbon! One of my new stamping friends observed that I use ribbon on all of the cards that I make. I told her, "No way!"...and then I looked at my card display. Of the at least 40 cards I have displayed, all but 1 card--yes, all but 1--had ribbon on it. Hmm...maybe it's time to branch out and use some different embellishments! So, that's one of my new goals this year--to use embellishments other than ribbon. Of course, I still haven't made a card without ribbon, but I'm at least adding some other stuff to the mix :-)

If you're interested in making this card for yourself, be sure to contact me to register for my class! I'm also offering this class through the mail, so please contact me if you are interested in that option.
