It is a blustery day here in Ottawa, Canada

The weather is windy and raining something this year we are really used to.  So what have I been up to. 

Christmas cards are what I love to do.  As a card maker the more bling the better.  I am making up card making packages to sell at an upcoming event so if you are interested in a package let me know...

Also did you know that CTMH has card making packages that all you need is the adhesive and inks...

Workshops Your Way® Joyful Tidings Cardmaking Kit Item Number: G1142

Workshops Your Way® Merriest Wishes Cardmaking Kit Item Number: G1141
Workshops Your Way® Merriest Wishes Cardmaking Kit Item Number: G1141

Both are 26.75 each for enough cardstock, card bases and envelopes, stampset and bling to make 12 cards which works out to  2.30 per card.  You can not go into a store and buy a premade one for less and you have the satisfaction that you made it yourself.  Now that is a bonus.

We now also have a stamping starter kit at $38.25 everything to begin your cardmaking journey.

If you purchase $50.00 or more you will be offered the Stamp of the month for $6.00 now that is also a bargain for a D sized stamp that would retail for $23.00 any other time.
