We have several things planned for this Wonderful Day!
Morning Activities: Cards for Troops
We will have our Art Bar at the front of the store set up to make cards that will be sent overseas to men and women who serve our country in the military. Come lend your talents in card making to help us complete a variety of cards to send to them. Even in the remotest areas of the world, people enjoy sending and receiving cards. What a blessing for us to do such a small thing- to make handmade cards to pass on to our soldiers so they may have cards to send home to their families and friends. We will also have a donation jar available so we can raise enough money to send along postage stamps to help defer the cost of postage for the soldiers.
Mid-day Activities: FREE Demo using New Products!
Between 12:30 and 1:30 we will have a free demo on using the New Stamp-N-Stick black Palette stamp pad and the New Castaway Bleach pad. We will be using the Interference Pearl-Ex powders and the Castaway pad on dark card stock- a new technique you may have never seen before.
Afternoon Activities: MAKE-N-TAKES for the Holidays!
About 2:00 PM we will start make-n-takes on the sales floor of Christmas Holiday cards. We will have samples of many holiday themed cards that you may try your hand at. We will have a table set where you can stamp a Christmas card and take it home with you. You will discover how simple it can be to make your own Holiday cards, and we will be able to answer all of your questions on how different ones are made.
We hope all out there can join us for this day of Fun and Friendship! We also have two regularly scheduled card classes going on in our classroom on this day. There are still openings available in
both classes, (see the class page on our web site for more information) so sign up for one or both of the classes for a full day of EXTREME Card Making!
