Good Morning!

Boy Nov. is almost already half over! I have some new classes to announce and dates. I am going to be having a Card Buffet, which is $10.00 to attend and then for each card you make it is $1.50. Which means if you see a card and you want to make more than one of it you can, unlike in class where you make one card of each design. I will be including some of our past cards that we have made in classes but there will be new ones also. The Buffets will take place on:

Wed. Nov. 19th from 10:00 - 4:00
Sat. Nov. 22nd - 10:00 - to 4:00

You can come for the entire time or come for just awhile. Come during those times on those dates. Bring a lunch and come socialize. This is my first one, so I'm sure there will be some "bugs" that will have to be worked out. I have tried to accommodate a gathering for those gals who don't work and also for those gals who do and can only do a weekend
I have also added a 10 Tags/Mini cards class for:
Dec. 1st - Monday 11-2
Dec. 6th - Sat. - 10-1

More details later
Enjoy this cool weather

Here are the cards that we did in the August classes.
 The cards made in class had the Melon Mambo square smaller and better in proportion.
 This was another quilt card that was made with Sweet Taffy DSP., as well as Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow cs.

 This was the Flower Patch stamps using the new In Colors ink.

 This was my favorite this month.  It is a Twisted Easel card using a retired stamp set, Gently Falling, but using all the new In Colors.
