Thanks to being off last week for spring break, I was able to get several projects done.  One of which was the three cards for the this month's Cards, Etc. workshop.  This month I will start having my monthly card class on Monday evenings, due to customer feedback.  This month will be on Monday, April 15th, beginning at 6 p.m.  So if you can make it, I would love to have you join me.

Here are two of the three cards that we will be making.  (The third card is featured in the next post.)
