Wednesday workshop

Yesterday I had the pleasure of holding a 3 for $6 stamping get together at my mother-in-law's home for her and her friends. She lives about an hour away, so it's not often that her friends are able to join me for my card making nights or events that I hold at my own home. My mother-in-law holds a weekly Bible study with a group of ladies, so we planned to do some stamping during the day on a regularly scheduled Bible study day. There were a great group of 10 ladies who came to stamp together. Because there are a handful of ladies who live "that way" who are interested in getting together on a regular basis for card nights, I'll be starting a stamp night every other month to be held at my mother-in-law's home. Should be a fun time!

The first card we made was an Easter card...

The next card you may have seen HERE before from a workshop I did about a year and a half ago. My mother-in-law really liked it and thought it would be a good one for her friends. On Tuesday, I shared how to make a faux knot in my Tuesday Tip using this card - check it out HERE!

What a nice way to spend an evening. You have inspired me to get more accessories to add to my cards. I love that first card and the gingham ribbon.
