Cars, trucks, and flowers

We had a blast making cards with cars, trucks and flowers!  And those who pre-paid got to make the bonus card: a card in the shape of a Scottish Terrier!  Each month those who pre-pay their materials fee will get to make the bonus card.  Drawings!  La Donna won for best card kit (she got a clear/frosted tote to carry her cards, Mary Kay lotion to keep hands prepped to make cards and chocolate---for fun)!  Maurine won the drawing for being a blog follower.  She got a bunch of birthday cards made by yours truly.  We may have some more drawings in the future.  : )

January 2012 Card Club!

Card Club 2012:

To make card club/poker night with the Stampin' Sisters run smoothly, please follow these guidelines:

A.   Bring your card kit (the following is a minimal list, you can have more)
1.  Adhesives (tape runner and refill OR double sided tape)
2.   Glue dots 
3.  Scissors 
4. Ruler
5. Bone folder.   
I may have tape runners  for purchase that night @ $3.25,  or refills for $2.25, in case you need to purchase one.   (I  have 150 glue dots for purchase at $1.75 per roll.)

 B.  Please, pre-pay the non-refundable $5 class materials fee

C.  If you sign up for a class and cannot come, you must find a stamp buddy (sorry, I cannot be your stamp buddy; I'm leading the club) to stamp your cards for you.  (When you sign up I take time to prepare your cards by measuring, cutting, counting out and figuring out supplies and accessories needed.  This preparation cannot be "undone.")

D.  Due to time constraints and scheduling availability, there will not be any more make up classes.   Thank you for understanding.

January 18, 2012 is our first card club of the year!  There are 3 time slots: 11 AM, 7 PM, and 8:15 pm.   Sign up by Jan. 15, 2012 to make 6 cards!   *Two drawings will be held:  One for the best (minimal supplies at least) card kit and another for blog followers.

 Here are the card choices:

1. grateful or thank you  (again, patterned paper may vary)

2.  boy birthday

3.  Thank you

4.  Birthday (patterned paper is dual sided so you can choose  pattern you like)

5.  Get Well or thinking of you (also has a birthday greeting)

6.  Birthday
