Up Town Cards

Yesterday we had a wonderful class! We made three punch buddy cards, two of which are shown above. The ideas for the cards came from Gretchen Barron and Jackie Topa. Everyone in the class really thought the cards were very cute.. hard.. but cute.

If you would like to be involved in making cute cards come joing the Uptown Card Group!

Cards for our Military

I have been so busy lately remodeling the outside of our house that I have not been updating my blog. Sorry... We are about done and I will get back to posting clever and crafty ideas.

I wanted to let you know that last Tuesday four of my ladies from my Uptown Card group got together to spruce up some card fronts to be shipped off to our military folks in Afghanistan. Thank you Gladys, Joan M, Joan B and my Mom Patsy.

A group called,  From our Hearts will take our card donation and combined them with thousands of other cards to ship them overseas. Here is From the Heart link if you would like to learn more about this program.
