TAC Birthfday workshop

I went to a 5 for $5 birthday card workshop. Even though I have a gazillion stamps and twice my weight in paper, I still go to these workshops because I can't make the cards that I'm offered in the workshops at home. I don't have these particular stamps, I don't have these particular papers, and I don't have the Nestabilities and the punches that Chris has. I am happy to help her justify her purchases, especially if it reins in my own. I love how the Nestabilities work when I go over there, but I have Coluzzle and Creating Memories and punches galore, I can't justify the expense. If I know I have to cut a certain size for a project, I will go to Chris's house to do it.

Here are the cards we made:

I changed this a little from the workshop card - I didn't like the stamp offered, and I decided that I wanted the "happy" to be sideways. Looking at it now, it seems stupid, I don't know why it was important at the time.

You can't tell it from the scan, but the white background is on the inside of the card, it has a half front and the scallop hangs over the edge. Cards like these are especially good if you write in them with colored pens.

This was my least favorite card of the day, although I think those border stamps on the brown part are very nice.

A basic, manly card, nothing special. The image was colored with pencils and gamsol.

I didn't like this at first, but the more I look at it, the more it grows on me.

This should probably cover my birthday card needs for the rest of the year.

I like them all but I'm biased. I'm glad the last one grew on you - it and your least favorite were my most favorite. Go figure, but that's how things work. :) PS. Thanks for helping me justify my purchases.
