However, I made the best of it and worked around the forgotten items. Even tho I felt miserable from my cold, I accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish and attend all the classes. Another awesome retreat and awesome classes. I take my hat off to Ronda and Melissa -- they continue to surprise us and WOW us. And this time, Tamie Ackerson joined them to help out (and to also pick on me continuously even tho I was on my death bed with a cold).
Today I am going to show you the cards I did at Ronda's Friday night card class and the bulletin board I made at Melissa's Saturday night class. I love taking their classes and it is the highlight of every Retreat I have attended (which is all of them!!). Everything they do is beautiful. But see for yourself, as I will be posting all the projects in the coming weeks.
|We did 4 each of the four cards shown here -- so a total of 16 cards and envelopes.|
|My favorite of the cards -- I just love this snowman, and the chunky glass glitter really made this sparkle.|
|I thought this card looked so elegant in the Basic Gray -- my favorite SU cardstock.|
|This is so beautiful in person -- love the Décor Elements!! I added a few more decorated pins to the board because they are so much fun to make.|
|Close up of my added metal butterfly tack that I embossed.|
|Close-up of added button and metal embossed flower tacks.|

|Another metal flower tack that I embossed.|
