Look what we did at our BLISS team meeting!

Before our last team meeting Shoni mailed us all a little packet of card stock and a few embellishments and challenged us to make a card using those materials. We were allowed to use whatever stamp sets or tools we wished but we were not allowed to add any other materials. It was so fun! Here is what we came up with:

Paula's card

Teresa's card
Janessa's card

Pat's card
My card

Tammy's card

I love how we ended up with such different designs from the same basic materials - which one is your favorite?

Be Very Merry at the Very Merry Card Class!

So I am in total Holiday mode already! I've been working on Halloween treats (already consumed quite a lot), Thanksgiving cards and Christmas/Holiday cards & gift ideas. Somebody get me a candy cane ;-)  I am kicking off with a Very Merry Card Class on Monday in the morning or evening - I hope you can come along! Don't you think it would just feel amazing to be able to send some personal handmade cards this year? I think a card in the mail has increased in value exponentially in recent years with the growing trend to send electronic cards and messages. Don't get me wrong: I love to hear from family and friends in whatever form they choose, but I really treasure those envelopes that arrive in the mail with a stamp on them...  So here is a peek at the cards we'll be making on Monday, 4 each of 4 designs. There will be 2 more classes like this but with different designs so try to come this week if you'd like to make these!
I hope you are having a great week and I look forward to seeing you soon :-)
