Friday's Fun

This morning I went to an iris fold class.  There were easily 100 people there.  The project was an iris fold tea pot....  a very appropriate project for today, since it's a bit chilly.  

The instructor of the class supplied the embossed aperature and diagram for the paper placement.  After that the crafters were on their own.  Some used ribbons instead of folded paper strips and the finished tea pots were lovely.  I am still working with limited resourses, so I used the same colorbok paper pack I used for my last card.  When I get home I may bling this up a bit.  Several women used a trail of clear bling gems rising from the spout for steam.  It looked real cute.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Challenge - A is for Anything Goes

I have a second card to show you today, which I made using the new CTMH Heartstrings paper.  The stamps are from the CTMH set that comes with the Heartstrings Workshop on the Go Card Making kit.   The puffy hearts and little bow are also from the same WOTG.

This card is for the current
