Oh...such a busy weekend! I may need another cup of coffee to make it through Monday morning!
Saturday, I hosted a big 16-card holiday catalog kick off meeting for my Stamping Bee Team. I teamed up with my mentor, Selene Kempton for this quarterly meeting and WOW! was it amazing! We ran the meeting in two places - mine in North Carolina and hers up in Massachusetts. There was a lot stamping going on this weekend. Everyone left with at least 16 completed cards, ready to share with family and friends, or use as class templates of their own during the holiday season.
We spent Sunday at my parents' house. The hubs mowed their grass while I spent several hours helping my mother clean out her closet. We filled two HUGE suitcases with clothes to donate to the local PTA Thrift Store. We decided to leave her dresser for another day. Then I found out she has a whole other closet upstairs that needs to be gone through, too. I guess those suitcases need to be emptied before we can start the next round.
Today's card was not part of the 16-cards. But it does use the Merry Patterns Stamp Set, which I gave away as a raffle prize for anyone who brought a display board to share with the group. Speaking of giving away...did you know that the Merry Patterns Stamp Set is part of the September/October host Promotion and is free with any qualifying order ($300). That $300 can be an individual order, or it can be a class order. I just started playing with this new set last night, and it's so much fun! it pairs wonderfully with all of our holiday designer papers, including the city scene from the Christmas Around the World pack. To get your Free Merry Patterns Stamp Set, contact me today to place an order, or schedule your October card class. (This stamp set is not available for purchase, and is only available until 10/31!)
