It happened

Last night the card exchanging ladies met here. It was exciting. We always spend time chatting first. Then we check out each others cards. Sometimes we have an activity. Tonight we made a mini folding scrapbook. I first saw the idea on Dawn O'. blog. I am so glad I printed the idea out because when I went to find it last night I was unable to find it on her blog. Thanks for the idea Dawn. We had to work with inferior 12x12 paper, it was really 12x11something. Everyone did their own thing and seemed to enjoy the project. There is always some fear that your friends won't like your idea as much as you do. Since three of the ladies were unable to attend I made them each an album this morning so that when they get their stack of new cards they will have an album too. I tried to gear it to what I new about the ladies. Well enough chatter. Here are the cards that we shared. And here are the albums I made.

We can do it

In my church there is a women's organization. Last night we had a nice activity. We learned how to do all sorts of preserving foods, using stored foods, and other things that stretch our dollars as families. The ladies that organized this did a great job. So did all of the presenters. I made these two cards to give a personal thanks to the main organizing/planning women. I hope they pass on my thanks to their committee.

Oh my it has been a while since I have written or shared anything. This is my card from last months card club exchange. I thought it was super cute. I figured it could be used for anyone's birthday. I got the idea from Dawn. This is my card for this month, July. It came together nicely. Since it is a bit bulky and will require extra postage I have added a quarter so the ladies don't have to pay the extra $ because of my design. This idea came directly from the 2010-2011 SU!
