A successful world card making day today! I had 13 people over to make cards. Most of the ladies who attended were regular attendees at stamp camp, but I was happy to see a few new faces at stamp camp (new to stamp camp, but friends for a while). A former neighbor, a colleague at work, a friend of a friend, my sister and my mother-in-law were all new faces at stamp camp! Everyone seemed to have a great time and it was nice to see the mix of people who attended. We caught up on life and just had a great time. Between sessions I took a peak at the retrosketches challenge and decided I had time to play along. Might as, I had everything out and few minutes to spare after cleaning up from the afternoon session.
As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I needed to use washi tape! I used the Epic Day Washi Tape and used the Label Card Thinlits Dies for the hi and arrow.
Hope everyone had a great World Card Making Day! Now it's time for me to start focusing on the holidays!
World Card Making Day is Saturday and I am having a Stamp Camp to commemorate the day! I love the idea of making handmade cards to send to family and friends. Whenever I send a card that I made, people notice and comment. It makes me feel really good that I took the extra time to send them something I made myself. In my world of internet purchases for pretty much nearly everything but perishables, it's nice to have a special way to recognize the special people in our lives. Designing 6 cards for the stamp camp took more energy than I can muster so I was grateful for a pretty and easy sketch from Retro Sketches this week.
I decided to move the greeting to the bottom since I felt the card needed something to offset the gray on the bottom half of the card.
