"10 for $10" Sneak Peek

As promised, here is a sneak peek of one of the cards that we will be creating at the "10 for $10 class" this Friday. Just a reminder about the class: During our time together, you will be making ten cards for $10, two each of five different designs. Each person that attends will have their name entered into a drawing to be the hostess (if the sales for the evening should total $150 or more) and to receive a sweet treat. If you decide to bring a friend along, you will receive 10% off of your next purchase and your name will go into the drawing twice. I hope to see you on Friday, April 4th from 6:30-8:30 pm. Please let me know if you would like to join in the fun and if you will be bringing a friend.

March Make & Take

This was the make and take for our March Stamper's 10 meeting. It is a 3 in. x 3 in. card with a small pocket on the inside. The pocket is large enough to hold a small square of Ghiradelli chocolate or a tea bag. It is made with the Merci stamp set featured in the Sale-a-bration mini and the patterned paper is part of the Bali Breeze designer series. This quick project makes a great card, party favor or thank-you note. You could also make a few with tea bags inside to send to a few girlfriends to invite them for tea.

Matthew's St. Patrick's Day Present

My husband, Matthew, has Irish heritage, and he loves St. Patrick's Day. So, I surprised him at work with this framed scrapbook page and a giant "Happy St. Patrick's Day" cookie. As you can see from the pictures, Troy really wanted to examine those shamrocks!
