Assorted Greeting Card Class - September 10th!

Hi everyone!!  Hope the start of a new school year finds all of you doing well!  We are trying to get back into the swing of things, making sure the girls are in bed early this week to prepare them for next week.  It is so hard to believe that my baby is going to be in Kindergarten this year, where has the time gone!!  The campus at CMU is buzzing with students too, sort of makes us all think of fall, which will be upon us soon.

Due to the Labor Day holiday weekend, I will be having card classes on the 2nd and 3rd Monday's this month instead of the 1st Monday.  On September 10th we will be doing assorted greeting cards, September 17th will be my Christmas class.  Here are pictures of some of the cards we will be making on the 10th!  don't forget that I will also be having my second chance card class September 5th!  This will be your chance to make cards from my July and August classes if you were unable to attend, or to make more of your favorites! 

Hope to see you on the 5th, 10th and/or 17th!
