A colouring class and a thank you card

Well I don't want to bore you (I'm plenty bored with it for both of us) but my broadband has gone again. Something obviously happens on a Saturday night/Sunday morning that sets our broadband profile back to something around dial up speed. If anyone else has had this problem and knows a fix then pleeease let me know and we'll try and explain it to the BT engineers when they next call around (they'll be going on my xmas card list soon, we're seeing that much of them). This is driving DH and me just crazy. I can't manage these days without an internet connection. I really think that BT should be funding all these extra trips to coffee houses that I'm having to make.

Enough of that now though.

Last weekend I attended a craft class. I love delivering classes and sharing tips and techniques with others but it was also great to sit back and soak up the knowledge of someone else for a couple of hours. This was a colouring class using alcohol based markers (Copics and Promarkers) given by the lovely Jo. I turned one of the images I made on the night into a thank you card for her and used the MojoMonday sketch as my layout:

Jo should have received the card by now so I think I'm safe to post it. We used a variety of stamps in the class that were all non-SU but I've still been able to combine with my SU stash to create the rest of the card:

Stamp set: Circle of Friendship
Textured Cardstock: Green Galore, Real Red, Orchid Opulence
DSP: Kaleidoscope
Ink: Basic Grey, Orchid Opulence
Punches: 1" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle
Non-SU: White card, Nestabilities, Copics, Sugar Nellie stamp

I coloured the image with Copics and then the rest is matting and layering.

Well I hope your weekend is going better than mine. Enjoy the rest of it.
