Hubby's creation

I still haven't made a card since the last one, but I plan to change that this weekend, hopefully starting later today :)   I thought if you stopped by I might as well give you something new to look at, so I picked an interesting idea Greg had for a card.  He likes the history behind the Egyptians, while in the Air Force he was lucky enough to have had to fly there and was even able to go see some pyramids. I believe these pictures and words were out of a magazine or book he had.  He took a square punch and centered the images then he took my score board and made the little boxes.

Here is a side shot of it so you can see the dimension that the boxes give to the card.

Interesting idea huh, I like how he used the background pictures to almost look like a mosaic tiled background.

I taught that card making class at my friends library last night, I had 5 ladies sign up and we had fun creating the card together, we had a little extra time at the end so I had some extra papers that they could use and let them design a card on their own, they really liked doing that.  I learned a lot of stuff I would do differently but I guess that is how it goes when you do something for the first time it is a learning experience, a lot different then when I had one on one time demoing.

Thanks for stopping by and next time it will be one of my creations again,
Have a Great weekend,

Your husband's card is wonderful, Connie. He really showed his idea of his travel there well. It sounds like you really did okay for your first class. I don't remember my first and bet it was because it probably wasn't as smooth. Amazing what I learned about myself and others too. Have fun and good for you!!!
