Teaching my first Copic Card Class - What do you think?

Hi and happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! We actually had a rainy and cloudy Sunday, and we loved it! LOL! We just don't get those, so when the rainy days happen, I truly enjoy them. I am so excited to be teaching my first Copic card class this week at my local scrapbook store called Scrapbook Paradise, and these are the two cards I've put together for them. I used Hero Arts stamps for both of them, and the stamps were all colored with Copic markers (of course).

With this being my first card class, I'm just nervous and hope everyone will enjoy it. I love dimension and color, and of course my silk ribbon. So I wanted to put as much of me into these cards as I could.

So what do you think?  Will they like the cards?  I'm anxious to hear what you think about it.  Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and please come back tomorrow (Tuesday). Papertake Weekly is three years old tomorrow, and we have an exciting blog hop planned for you with lots of fun and prizes along the way! Hope you join us! Hugs!

At first glance, I thought you were TAKING a class, and I thought...what the heck? Has she lost all her marbles? She's amazing with COPICS!

Helo Sharon,
Both cards are great. The class will love these. your coloring is so beautiful, you'll do just fine.
Have fun doing your class.

by the way, just got back from being away for 6 weeks and received your fantastic give away! I love all of the gifts. The card is so beautiful, I have it hanging in my craft room, and will not part with it. Two envelopes will be put in the mail tomorrow. Thank you again.

I smile as I read this my friend. You are THE most amazing teacher (where would I be without you) & those cards are both wonderful !!!
The only worry you have is that there will be tooooo many ladies wanting to take your class. I'm tempted to drive to Reno just to see you in action ... My lucky day was the day I found your gorgeous card online & e-mailed you & said OMG that is like something out of a Fairy Tale ... You were so kind & have been my mentor ever since. They're gonna love you my friend & your class ..
Hugs, Janie
