President's Day playdate
We met again today for our holiday play-date except we were in the midst of a blizzard here in Wisconsin, so four of the gals who planned on attending couldn't chance the roads. I hosted today's event and fed them pastromi, turkey, and honey ham, provolone cheese, cojack cheese, and muenster cheese, and chicken salad and lettuce to make wonderful sandwiches on crescents and hoagie rolls. I also whipped up and eclair torte for dessert and we had Chex mix and trail mix to nibble on. Diana, Deb, Judy, and Babs were sadly missed as they couldn't venture out, but we had Nancy, Jacki, Erika (Jacki's daughter who is visiting here from Norway), Victoria, my grand-daughter, and myself in attendance. We had a fun and laughter-filled morning and afternoon while we created some fabulous cards. Even Victoria taught a card. We try to each come up with a card idea and make one up for a sample and cut for all the people attending and then teach it. Today, Nancy shared two great cards, Victoria had one to share as did both Jacki and Erika, and I shared three of them. Here they are in no particular order but it looks like we are wanting spring badly! A lot of butterflies appeared on today's cards!
