April Club Cards

Celebrations were the theme for this month’s Club! We made a wedding card, a bridal shower card, and a graduation money holder. It seems that this time of year you always need these types of cards.
The wedding card used the set “To Have and To Hold”.

The graduation card used the set “Great Grads”.

The bridal shower card use the Big Shot Scallop die and the Manhattan Flower Textured Impression. I need to Thank Patty Bennett for this idea.

Late Night Thoughts

As I sit to write this blog post I am thinking about all the things I need to complete before my trip to convention. Yes, I signed up and I am excited already. I know, I know, Convention is not until August. I have been able to sign-up for a specialized swap or two so when I return I will have many new things for my great customers.

I am in the process of updating my events calendar so please check back.

Have a blessed day!
