November $5 Card Class – Sign Up Now!

It’s nearly November and that means it’s almost time for my monthly $5.00 card class.  Each month you’ll go home with three fun cards – including envelopes for just $5.00.  All supplies are pre-cut and ready for your stamping and assembly.

Haven’t been to a $5.00 card class…here’s what you need to bring:  Versamat (my tables are bumpy if you want good stamp images this is a must have supply), your favorite adhesive including 3D foam tape (thick and thin) and glue dots.  I also recommend bringing scissors and tweezers.

I hope you’ll be able to join me November 5th at either 10AM or 6:30PM.  You need to RSVP by October 30th so that I can have your card packets prepared.

There’s a Partridge in a Pear Tree on the Paper Trail

November means the sudden approach of the Christmas season and the Paper Trail is focusing its vision on the seasonally appropriate Pear & Partridge Paper Pack.  If you’ve made your way here from Mary’s blog you are on the right path, but if not don’t worry we’re a circular hop and if you follow the links you’ll end up right back where you started with plenty of new inspiration gathered along the way.

I have been playing with the Pear & Partridge Card Making Kit, but decided at the last-minute that I wanted to scrapbook my Christmas pictures from last year.  My mom recently passed away from cancer and my favorite picture is one of her “modeling a new scarf” that she had received as a gift.  So, I turned to Studio J for help!  I LOVE Studio J…within just a few minutes I had dropped my pictures into photo wells, did a quick rotation of the 2nd page, colored the accessories and sent it to my cart and now it’s here!

I hope you have enjoyed my little trip down memory lane…now hop on over to Karen’s blog and take a look at what she has in store, I’m sure it’s going to be worth “5 Golden Rings”.
