I hate to change the date of card class but for my own wellbeing I'm forced to do it this week.  Normally card class is the 4th Thursday but because of Thanksgiving class is usually moved up a week.  Well, that is this Thurs but I'm totally overwhelmed by the fact that my building in Ashley is still not ready and I have a feeling that Thurs and Friday are going to be very busy getting ready for Sat.  So class is postponed until Monday, Nov 24th.  The class that day will be a tag class and I'm combining it with a customer appreciation play day.  You're all invited to come and play with my stuff.  There's lots of things that we never got to play with yet so come that day and play.  Here's a card using the Holiday Home stamp set and the framelits to cut the image out.  Come and use it next Monday.  Just be sure to let me know by Friday, Nov 21 if you are going to do the tag class.
 
 
This beautiful card was made by Karen Colburn.

Time is flying past way to fast.  I've been feeling totally overwhelmed with the Country Christmas stuff and trying to get my building ready.  But things are finally looking up and I've decided to stay home today and get things ready for my tag class next Thurs.  It's also going to  be a customer appreciation day where all of my customers can come and play with my stuff.  I've got things that we've never gotten to use at class so here's your chance.  These pictures show some of the cute ideas for using the Curvy Keepsake Box framelit. 
 
 
This cute snowman is by Monika Metzler.

 
How about this cute lady bug?  It's by Lynn Starzl.

 
And I love this Santa box from Deborah Smart. 
I still haven't had time to play with this framelit but I hope to get some time this week.  So if you want to try it out just come to the Paper Palace on Nov. 20th.  And if you want to take the tag class just let me know.

I'm so far behind with posting that I decided to give you all of last month's card class at one time.  Christmas is fast approaching and there's so much that we haven't been able to do in class that I've decided to add a "Customer Appreciation Day" where you can come and play all day with my stuff.  I'll have lots of pictures of projects and hopefully some samples.  If you only want to make one of each thing you can use my supplies but if you think you might want more than one then you'll need to bring some of your own card stock with you.  I'll try and post some pictures so that you can see what you might want to do.  My biggest problem is picking a date.  I'm afraid that once my last class is over my craft room will get trashed with crafts for the Country Christmas.  So I'm going to say that play day will be the same day as the tag class, Nov 20th.  So on that day you can come and make tags or you can just come and play.

Look what you missed when you didn't come to card class last week.  We made this cute d├ęcor item by using the bow tie die.  How, you ask.  There is a video about it but I seem to have deleted it by mistake.  You'll just have to wait until I find it or write a tutorial.  But don't hold your breath.  It's been crazy busy around here.  I'm working like crazy on the Ashley Country Christmas committee, writing press releases and working every Thurs in Ashley getting things ready.  Would you like to help?  We meet every Thurs and Sat.  And we're looking for lots of volunteers to work during the Country Christmas.  If you would like more information please check out our Face Book page or our blog.   villageofashleycountrychristmas.BlogSpot.com
