Just Have Some Fun!

Recently a friend told me that I should make a list of fun things I've always wanted to do, and start doing them.  What great advice!  :)

I've started my list, but one of the easiest fun things for me to do is to make a card!  (It's the simple things...)

Here's one of the cards we'll be making at card class this month.  It was designed by Lalia Harris.  She's so talented!

It's a "swing card" that folds flat to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", and opens with a little flap in the inside.  This particular one is from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  Here's the outside:

And when you unfold it -  the inside:

If you were to look down at the card from the top, it folds like a "Z".

I love how cute it is, and there's still room to write a message.

If you want to make this fun card - come to a class this month!  January 18,19, 24 or 25 (times vary, check my "Monthly Classes and Workshops" tab at the top of my blog).
