Card and More 12-3

Hope you are in a snowflake mood because this week all three of our cards feature fabulous snowflakes. I guess when you live in the desert you just have to pretend!

We are using the new die for the big shot and will be playing with some embossing as well. Join us as we really get down to business with our final push on our Christmas cards. Only a few more weeks to go!!!

A challenge of LOVE

A challenge of LOVE....

As most of you know I am a great supporter of "From Our Hearts"...the non-profit organization that sends handmade cards to troops. The cards are used by military personnel to keep in touch with lived ones back home -- spouses, children, parents and friends all receive cherished notes from their loved ones on beautiful handmade cards provided by literally hundreds of volunteers from across the nation.

The urgent need for cards right now is Valentine's Day Cards. I know.. we are all working on finishing up our Christmas cards and they are needing Valentine's Day already. The Valentine shipment needs to be sent out by the end of the year so this is the plan....

I will mail our box on Sat. Dec 18, please get ALL cards to me by that cut off date. I will do a random drawing for a Heart Embosslit die for those participating with us. I have some precut cards Christmas cards that can "revamp" into Valentines available on a first come first serve basis that you can put together at home and return, or just drag out your supplies and create until you run out of ideas and time. Duplicates are definitely encouraged, you DO NOT need one time only cards unless you only have supplies for one of that specific card you made. Let's try for our own challenge of 200 cards and see how far we can surpass that.
Cards will also be available at our Holiday Potluck as our last minute push to fill our box. Please join us in the worthwhile ongoing effort and get your cards to me today.

Workshop Wrap-up

A few weeks ago now we had a great workshop with some wonderful ladies who are brand new to Stampin' Up. It was a wonderful night and we all had so much fun. We made festive holiday cards and played with the Big Shot. It was a great way to introduce ourselves to the wonderful new Stampin' Up products available this time of year.

If this seems like something you and your friends would like to be a part of... or something you would like to host in your home.. give me a call and I would love to bring my supplies and show you what Stampin' Up has to offer right now. It is always fun to get together with friends and do a little crafting... especially at this time of year.

Oct. 31

Happy Halloween....

Isn't she too cute???

I had a friend of mine call and ask if I would make some fun Halloween "announcement" type cards for her for her daughter's first Halloween. Of course I said I would. This is the final product and I am very pleased with how they turned out and I hope she is too.

They are all a little different but have the same idea. It was fun to do and the photo was a lot of the inspiration with the rhinestone pumpkin on her shirt and the adorable tutu skirt she is wearing as well. So fun!

If anyone wants something similar to this for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's... let me know....
We are currently building our site and working on upcoming projects and classes. Be patient with us as we try to make this a useful and informative place for you to come to see what we are working on...what events are coming up...what classes are being held in the future...and what items we will have for sale!

We hope this will help you get to know us better and also be a place for you to find fun products and also great ideas.
