How life pans out.....

I have been thinking about this a lot lately - how your life can take a different path and so you have different experiences. The only reason I got into card making was because I was having chemotherapy and just needed something to do on my better days....if I had not been ill - I doubt I would have made a single card ever ..and my life would have been so less blessed because of that. I have met some wonderful friends through the breast cancer group but I have also made wonderful friendships with fellow crafters.
        I am lucky to have met 2 great craft teachers who I now count as friends.  On a Friday I go to Lyndseys classes and on Saturday I go to Sarahs for crafting. I always look forward to finishing work on a Friday. Love learning new techniques and dribbling over paper and promarkers together.

Lyndsey always sets homework on what we have learnt - this week it was a sketch and using paper piercing = see above card.
I am going to put my version in the following challenges
allsortschallenge - things with wings
alphabetchallenge- anything with wings
.addictedtostamps = bingo [paper piece/free/heart]

Later in the week I shall put on a card I made with Sarah
