Chelsea Gardens Card Workshop and a Little Update

posted in: Cards, Workshops | 0

Hello everyone!

Wow, life has been crazy lately.  Some of you know that our family is in the process of adopting from Haiti.  Soon after my last blog post we found out we had been matched with a little boy and that we could go right away to meet him!  Our fall months were full of making arrangements for a 2-week visit and for our regular mission trip, as well as the regular business of doing life and well, business.  🙂  I can’t share photos of our little guy and he’s not home yet because there are still many steps in our process and he isn’t officially our son yet.  But I will share when I’m able to.  Life is now back into a rhythm we recognize.

So, now I’m back to doing card workshops!  Like I used to do, I’m offering Create@Home kits for anyone who isn’t able to attend the class.  Here are the details:

Three of these cards were designed by the Close To My Heart Art Department and we created them at our Seasonal Expressions Launch in December.  I thought they would make a great workshop.  You’ll get to create all 5 of these cards.  We will play with watercolour pencils, the Clear Shimmer Brush and vellum.

Just look at that shimmer!
