Stamp-A-Stack August 2010

Hi All!  I am so excited that I started my blog in September.  It has been so much fun working on it and learning everything I need to know about blogging.  My blog design is coming along slowly but I am getting there.  So please check in regularly to watch my blog evolve.

Here are the photos from my August Stamp-A-Stack Card Making Class.  At SAS we make 12 cards, 3 each of 4 different designs for $20.  There is also a bonus item available for an additional $2.  Unfortunately, I can't seem to locate the bonus item, but as soon as I do, I'll post it.  The first photo is one that I posted previously but wanted to post again with the rest of the cards from that class.  Isn't it just wonderful?  I love the combination of the brown and purples.

This card reminds me of the hydrangeas that were between our house and the neighbors when I was a little girl.  I remember that they were blue and that there were 4 beautiful bushes. Once, on May Day, I picked some of them, made a little cone basket from construction paper and hung them on my neighbors door.  I then rang the door bell and ran like crazy.  I thought that my neighbor would just LOVE the flowers that I had picked for her.  It didn't hit me until later in the day that I had picked HER flowers...

This third card didn't originally have the ribbon on it.  One of my ladies said "This would be so cute with some ribbon on it.", so I grabbed some ribbon, handed it to her and she added it to her cards.  She was most definitely right!  So I asked her to add the ribbon to my sample and VIOLA!  I have to say a BIG "Thank You, Kika!"

Great projects and I LOVE the hydrangea story! I'm sure your neighbor appreciated the thought :)
