Tonight's gathering is just a couple of hours away and I am just getting this ready to post. I sure hope they like the cards this month. I have been sick since Saturday and haven't had the strength or energy to get down to my studio to play. Good thing I had a good jump on them already. Have everything packed up and ready to load in the car now as everyone from here is car-pooling with me again instead of driving separately as it's 30 miles to the hostess's home again this month.Worked out great last time. The first one is very clean and simple and will be done in a jiffy. The second one has lots of fun folds and details and holds a gift card so will take some time to demo this. I made them each a handout to use with the measurements and another I scanned of my finished card. The make and take tonight is also a lengthy one on the glossy cardstock with heat embossing and resist. Most of these gals are brand new to stamping so they will be excited to see the heat embossing in action! That's what got me hooked right from the beginning and then seeing Tim demoing in MN. at scrapfest before he was well-known. I was just mesmorized watching him. LOL Totally smitten with his work and him! To save time, I have all the pieces cut and ready other than a few of the flowers that I cut on my Cricut using the exclusive CTMH cartridge, Artiste. I love that cartidge!!! I saved a few of the blossoms to stamp and emboss for the demo so they see how it works and can witness the magic of it all.
