This is something I have never known about or been exposed too, so I'm so excited to try this out, and to share with my friends who probably already knew about this. Thanks so much also for the tips on building, and layering the materials.

This class gave me ideas for making my own cards, and motivated me to get right on to it. The teacher is easy to follow. I would take other classes from her.
