Happy Leap Day!!!

and a Happy Friday as well!!!

I don't think I've mentioned that I'm taking Julie Ebersole's Simply Great Card Design class over at My Creative Classroom. This class ropcks! Not only is Julie an awesome teacher...I've had the opportunity to take a class from her in the past at A Muse in Seattle...but the class she put together for card design is super! We're only in the second week of class and it has already made a HUGE difference in how I'm looking at my card making. If you get a chance I definitely recommend taking this course. Five stars all the way!!!

On to the card...*hehehehe*...This is a card I made as a thank you to a close family friend that gave Bella a baby gift. The first version that I had come up with in no way resembles this one! It actually was made using Bundle of Joy from SU! I was to the point of adding my sentiment when my brain kicked in and asked myself why I wasn't using what I'd just learned in class? DUH! It's like a lightbulb went off inside and I started going. I rummaged through my stamps and found this one...this gal loves dolls...perfect! I kept going and here's what I came up with...
