Wed, Sept 11

Good Morning Everyone,

I guess Fall is trying to push summer aside, finally.  Quite the rain storms we are having, love the cooler humidified air, though! 

Besides our usual blog of class photos, we have a lot to tell you about:

Our current Fall Card Challenge ends on this Friday, the 13th, get your cards in for a chance to win $25!  Some great cards are showing up!

We have started our new Challenge, it is GIRLIE TAG CHALLENGE.  We will have 2 categories for this challenge, Simple or Complex and the winner of each category will win a $15 gift certificate to ARTSY!  No kit to buy this time, just purchase one of our 10 different Prima girl stamps (priced at $7.59) and a  15 cent #10 tag.  Get to it girl! Return your creative Girlie Tag by Oct.10 for judging!

 These Challenges have been so much fun.  We've all gotten lots of new ideas for great cards!

We packed up another box of 192 donated cards and sent them to Operation Write Home this week!  We thank you for your donations of A-2 sized cards, BLANK inside, no glitter or stickles (night vision equipment), and envelopes!  We are still collecting...

WORLD CARD MAKING DAY is coming up...October 4th and 5th.  Join ARTSY, STAMP 2 IT, AND A SCRAPPIN PLACE for an always fun weekend.  All 3 stores will have a special project going for just $1 or 2.  And stuff on sale!  Remember to bring your small basic tool kit, or rent one for $1.50.  Make a day of it, plan it with your girlfriends.

So, mark your calendars for fun!
