Variation on 1 Technique

In three weeks is the Create-a Retreat event at Seven Feathers Casino Resort. I have a booth with my DH, and I am teaching a class, which BTW is sold out. I will also be teaching technique 4 make & takes throughout the event & a free one for the participants.

Below are photos of 5 variations of the  free make & take for the participants.  Part of the card is in the goodie bags. To finish the card they have to come to our booth to sponge & stamp the rest.  It is quick, using the "Northern Lights" technique.

Valentine & Easter Cards

I normally do not make or send Valentine's Day cards or Easter cards.  Just For Fun Stamps had some really cute hearts & bunny stamps that spoke to me.  Why?  Well, because they reminded me of candy.  I love candy hearts & probably my favorite candy next to Sugar Babies are Peeps!  When I say Peeps I mean stale Peeps.  When I bring them home I poke holes in the package & they are just right after a few days.  Crazy Huh?

Anyway I used the technique I am demonstrating at the Create-Your-Retreat event next month.  I will share the samples in my next blog post Feb. 25.

Here are my Valentine & Easter cards. Quick & Simple & I think I may send them to someone this year.
