Well, it's been one heck of a day, and it's not even 10am yet!
It all started in the middle of the night when we were awakened with crazy banging and pounding at our front door. After a peek out the window & catching the flashing of emergency lights, we opened the door just to have a fireman tell us we needed to evacuate... and NOW!
We threw some clothes on, grabbed the kids and headed outside in the dark -- where there ended up with 18 units attending the fire! It turns out that 2 doors over was billowing massive amounts of plastic-y smelling smoke so out we went. Luckily, the 2 alarm fire ended up with no injuries and we were sure happy to finally be cleared to go home after spending the early morning in our local Country Style donut shop.
Pheww... too much excitement for me. If I fall asleep during today's classes, please cut me some slack :)
Moving on to today's sample, here's a card for my upcoming Sympathy/Thinking of You cards class.
Featured is the "Because I Care" set, one of our gorgeous hostess offerings from this year's catalogue. While this set is not available for sale, you can get it FREE for either placing a $200 order or by joining my Stampers Club beginning in September. Ask for details... I'd be happy to tell you more!
Because of the detailing on the main floral image, I used 2 of the In Color Markers: Pear Pizzazz and Concord Crush. Markers make it so easy to deal with the intricacies of those trickier images, and I can't imagine not having these yummy new flavours... oh, I mean colours, to play with.
The patterned paper used was from my stash of the new In Color DSP Paper Stack
All of my class attendees get their own package of Filigree brads to use and take home! Please RSVP if you would like to join us :)
As an FYI, I have now added a second date so if you can not make it to Saturday's 1pm time, you are welcome to stop in on Monday the 28th's class.
Hope you have a great day!
