Dancing Tilda

I can't believe it is Wednesday already. I received my blog candy from Julie yesterday. It is awesome!!! My husband doesn't get the blog candy. He said you always need something yet you give it away...LOL!!! So a great big THANK YOU to Julie for her generosity. I can't wait to play.

Here is another teacher card I made with a nice summery background. I love the barbed wire background. You can't see it in this photo but she has patent leather shoes. I used liquid glass to make them nice and shinny. Dancing Tilda is such a great stamp!

Here is a close up:

Only one more cooking class! Tonight was totally delicious. We made roasted potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, Tuna with an awesome mustard sauce, shrimp appetizer, fish stew, scallops and swordfish. Next week we serve our guests.

Now on to the crafting part of  my life. I have five more teacher cards to go. I realize through this process that I prefer to do this as a hobby. With no pressure.
