WooHoo!!! Online Class and the challenge!

You KNOW I like on-line classes! I did a few classes through Cornish Heritage Farms and loved them!

So, guess what???........I WON an on-line class at
Get It Scrapped!!

It is all about making your own embellishments and you also KNOW that I love all so
rts of doo-dads and knickie knackie thingie ma bobbies, so this is just perfect for me!!

So the classes started this week and are taught by Tania Willis and are so amazingly easy (so far that is) I mean her directions are phenomenol and basic and fabulous!

The first class that was offered was on Tuesday an
d we had wonderful instructions to make yo yo's, which, between you and me I kind of froze up-- KWIM? I'm thinking, do I need to know how to run a skillsaw for this class????!

Notta, nope. Just a pair of scissors. and a needle and thread - well technically embroidery floss, which, thanks to the supply list, I had a lot of.......

So here they are - the yo-yo's - aren't they just so pretty! and delicious!!??

So I made my card for the Ways to Use It challenge had to pick colours from the colour wheel and the colour wheel just happened to have the same colours as a couple of the yoyo's there you go........ You never know when you might need a yoyo!

I picked the Friction colour theme which is here and based my colours on that theme as per the challenge.

Well, I hope you had a good day......mine was fabulous!!
