5 Cards for $5 Class

I want to thank everyone who came to my card class!   Cards are so easy and fun to make!  I decided to teach this class because I not only wanted to show off our new lines of papers, but I wanted to teach everyone how easy cards are to make!  Cards can be made from your scrapbooking scraps!  Everyone wanted me to do this again….and I will!  I had a lot of fun creating all these cards!   Each card had a different technique…some never taught in any of our classes!  For those of you who didn’t get into the class…..here are the pictures and instructions…..
