I wanted to share my favorite card from my November Card Club. I just loved the Santa's Workshop Designer Series Paper! And when I started designing this Club, I just knew I had to do something a little un-Christmasey. How do you make Santa un-Christmasey? You add a cute, Itty Bitty un-Christmasey greeting!
My Monthly Card Club is by far the most popular event I do all month. I started last March with just 2 people, and it's grown to 20+ people per month. What sets my club apart is it's a monthly subscription that you can cancel at any time. With many 'hostess' clubs, you're locked into a set amount of time. With mine, you sign up, stay as long as you want, and after 6 consecutive months, you receive $25.00 of any product for FREE, including hostess sets!
My Monthly Card Club is available in person on the last Saturday of each month at 10 am. Or, you can get your Club Kit "To Go" and have it delivered right to your door. Each month, there are 8 cards (2 each of 4 designs), pre-cut, with bows tied for you. All you need to do is stamp & assemble!
Also included will be:
One exception: Registration for December's Club ends 12/3 and Club will meet on 12/15 due to the busy holiday season. Sign up for December's Club, or start the New Year off with a New Year's Subsciption. Learn more about Monthly Card Club or email me to subscribe.

My neighborhood craft fair is this weekend. And before you roll your eyes and think, oh a little tiny craft fair...there are 2500 homes in my neighborhood! It will be great to see neighbors both familiar and new.
I'm putting some last minute touches on things and making sure I'm ready. This morning, I packaged up these cute Signs of Santa elf packets. Each holds a small hand sanitizer - perfect for teachers, bank tellers, grocery clerks, postal workers - anyone who comes in contact with the pubic during cold and flu season will appreciate that you thought of them. As you can see, I've used the Tags and Tidings bundle for the gift tags. I love that one stamp and die made light work of creating 16 tags. I was done in no time flat!
If you're in the area, come by and see me at the Briar Chapel Fall Market, happening from 11-2 in the Clubhouse. Mention my blog and you can pick a free card!
No time to type! I'm busy, busy, busy getting ready for this Craft fair. But, stay tuned for Saturday's Crafty Saturday Facebook Live where I'll show you how to make this hand sanitizer packet, plus a few more gift packaging ideas!

America the Beautiful
~Katherine Lee Bates
O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain;
for purple mountain majesties

America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
and crown thy good with brotherhood
from sea to shining sea.
