Card Making Classes

My friend Penny has done a couple of the online card making classes given by Jennifer McGuire and thoroughly enjoyed them.  I signed up for Clean and Simple 2, which started a couple of days ago and is basically the art of simple, well designed cards that feature lots of stamping.  Our day one project was to make a card inspired by one of the sketches they posted on the lesson plan, and this is the card I came up with.
I've decided to use the class to get a good head start on my Christmas cards... yes, I realise it's only January but I truly need a BIG head start!  I really enjoyed using the techniques explained in the class and had a wonderful time rediscovering some of the old stamps that have been hiding in my stash for years!
