Let's Try This Blog Thing Again

I've tried this several times and haven't carried it out very well, usually due to lack of time, but I'll try it again.  I'd like to post cards that I make in my workshops but also cards that I see on other people's blogs that I like or think my customers might be interested in.   So let's give this a go :-)

First off is a Halloween card.  The first card is a CASE of someone else's card. I've looked high and low for the original but can't find it.  I'd love to give credit and if I ever find it I'll post the original link here, but for now here my card.

The Card Buffet is Open

The Next Buffet is June 26th 1-4pm

Hi! My card buffet is back and will be open once a month. Here's how it works:
  1. Look over this month's cards and select the ones that you would like to make.
  2. Leave a comment on the card telling me how many of that card you want to make or send me an email.
  3. Choose as many cards as you like.
  4. If you would like a different sentiment you can choose from others that I have on hand or bring one of your own.
  5. Payment in advance is much appreciated but on the day of buffet is ok. Please don't sign up for a card unless you are sure that you will attend as I assemble materials based on sign up :-)
  6. See the Nitty Gritty Details at right.

I will have a Stampin'Up catalog available if you would like to order your stamping and scrapbooking supplies!  I'l also have some samples of cards using sets from the new catalog available July 1st.

Let's get together and have fun stamping!
