My friend Cindy and I went to my brother's house at the Jersey shore Friday afternoon. Of course, a stop at ACMoore on the way was required! Cuttlebug stuff was 40% off and Sizzix stuff was 50% off, so you KNOW we did some damage.
It was rainy and chilly all weekend but who cares? We were stamping and crocheting and watching TV and playing music and eating and snacking and it was a REALLY good time. Oh, and yes, we laughed a LOT!
My primary goal was to get some Christmas cards made. I can take NO credit for the design of the cards- I wimped out and ordered Lisa Bearnson's Holiday Card kit from the CK website. My only claim is construction. I got 20 cards done so that is a good start. Here are a few samples from this weekend's work:
There are actually a few more but I keep getting an error code so I will upload those another day. The picture is DH and I on our cruise this summer.
I also made several templates of Christmas cards for the kids in the craft club at school to use. Those cards are stamped and made from scratch. They are making cards to sell to raise money for a trip to Appalachia this summer to work with Habitat for Humanity. Most of the kids at my school could not afford to do this without fundraising and I think it is really neat that the craft club kids are willing to do the work to help support other kids for this trip.
Like I said, it was a GOOD weekend.
