Several months ago I invited a colleague over to have a go at card making.
Initially I got the impression she was coming out of politeness and a little out of curiosity.
Since that evening we have spent a couple of evenings together, evenings that have consisted of me babbling away about all the different techniques that can be used to create different effects, all the tools and products available and how they can and cannot be used. Of course it wouldn't be much fun just talking about it. To make it fun you need to play, so I shared my toys and we played for hours.
I think she has the bug now !
A little before Christmas I said to Hubby that Sue was making us a Christmas card.
After a little thought he said "is that the lady that came round a couple of months ago that's just started card making.?"
I said "yes"
He said "Well, that's gonna be crap then."
Sometime between Christmas and New year I sat looking at all the Christmas cards we had received and my eyes were constantly being drawn one particular handmade card.
Remembering Hubby's pre Christmas comment, I asked him to look at all our cards and choose his favourite.
He chose the same card as I had, as his favourite...............Guess what!!!..... It was this card created by Sue. I think somebody had to eat his words.
I told Sue this story this morning, fortunately this lovely lady has a sense of humour as well as being very creative and found the story quite amusing and she has only threatened to poke Hubby's eyes in next time she see s him.
If you ask me. he's got off lightly. :->
