It was a dark night.....

Just as I was about to post this picture of the last card that we created in our Thursday Christmas Card Class the LIGHTS WENT OUT!  TOTALLY!  No electricity from 5:30 last night to 11:30!  It seems there was a two car accident on Azalea Garden Road and one of the cars took down a telephone pole.  I am just glad I wasn't in the middle of baking a cake!


This card uses retired (!) designer series paper, gold foil and the dies from the JOY OF NOEL bundle on page 28 in the Mini ~ part of the JOY OF CHRISTMAS SUITE.

Christmas Class FUNdraiser today.....

FUNdraiser Christmas Card Class this morning to benefit CHKD.  Marti, Mary, Barbara, Sunny and Diane all made these holiday cards to send to friends and took home persimmons to snack on.  I still have more if you would like some...

CLASS 1This card uses gold foil and the Shining Brightly Specialty Designer Series Paper (#162378).

CLASS 2This card uses the Sparkling Snowflakes Bundle (stamp set & punch) on page 39 in the Mini.

CLASS 3I think that this is my favorite card.  It is a very simple card using the Fragrant Forest background stamp on page 27 in the Mini Catalog.  We used Shaded Spruce ink to cover the stamp ~ it prints so beautifully!  I was amazed at the detail and texture of the trees.  Let me know if you are interested in the project sheets for these cards.  One more tomorrow!
