Response to Cards for Troops

Wow! Your response to this was overwhelming. I am sorry I could not accomodate everyone. Remember if you have a level one kit to bring, that would be great. It should be fun. I will post the results.
If you got a confirmatory email, then you are in.

Level One Card Class for the Troops

Here is an example of cards made from a Level One Close to my Heart Kit. This is one of my favorite things tod o becasue they always look great and they are sooooo fast and easy.
These were made rom an old level one Silhouette pack I had hanging around.
On Jan 23rd at 1:30 I will be teaching a level one card making class. I will be providing all the materials If you want to bring a level one kit you have to "donate" that will be great. Here's the twist..... I will be teaching the class and you will make the cards, but we are going to donate them all to soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan. My husband said when he was there, the card basket was one of the most popular things.
So let me know if you want to come and have fun for a good cause. Let me know if you are going to donate or need me to order for you. You can then take this skill and use it on your own. I promise you will, cause the are the easiest, quickest and most elegant way to make a bunch of cards.

Fights at the Feeder

There have been big fights and crowding at the bird feeder these last few days. I have had a red headed woodpecker coming to feed. He is so big her can barely hang on long enough to get the food. I have also had tons of a bird I have never seen here, a house finch, which is a beautiful red color, like a toned down tiny cardinal. Needless to say, the cats have crowded around "cat TV" for the Christmas special. Tato has even been napping on the table in front of the window, like falling asleep watching TV.
