Watercolor District - Card One


I've been enjoying myself so much in my new store.  I just finished a class with 8 wonderful ladies - all different - all interesting and fun to listen to.  Sometimes I think it would be fun to rename everyone with one name like "Griselda"...so I could say things like:

Today Griselda said: "Gee - your outfit looks so nice...but it would be better if your fly was up!"

See what I mean?  I could relay everything (well...not everything...some things just shouldn't be said!)  that happens in the store without anyone knowing who said it!.  Might try that out!

HERE'S WHAT I USED TO MAKE THIS CARD:

If you can't tell from the picture...the front has been cut out so that you can see the inside as well as the outside!  There are 3 stamps in this set so that you can make a "tri-fold" card...which is cool.  But I wanted to do 3 cards for my ladies' class - therefore, I made 3 cards in a different way.
