CLASS SAMPLES for Nov 1st classes

The date is Tuesday Nov 1st, either 9:30 Am or 5:30 PM.   All of the cards in this class are for the Holidays.   There are 5 cards,   including envelopes for $10.   I will be offering a cute little box with a cello bag of BLESSINGS Mix in it for an OPTIONAL  project.   Cost is $2 and includes the treat. The pictures of it are shown below the 5 Christmas cards.
              The black layer of this card is sparkly although it doesn't show up very well in the photo.

this little card folds flat to fit into an A2 envelope.  
Here is a side view of the above card.  Sorry for the blurry shot.
This is a window card.  
and here is the window card open.
This card was inspired by one done by Eileen Lefevre.  Her blog is

and last but not least is this adorable little snowman made from an envelope----yes I said envelope---an A2.  
but he is not just ANY OLD snowman.   He has a little secret---------
see next picture to see what he is hiding!
how about that for a nice surprise?????

And here are the pictures of the Thankgiving Blessings treat box I will be offering in this class.
Here is the front of the box.   If using as a place marker for Thanksgiving dinner, you could add each persons name wth a marker to the front of the box.
This is the back of the box, explaining what each item in the blessings mix stands for.
If you wish to make this in addition to the Christmas cards, you must let me know in advance as I will only prepare enough kits for those who are signed up to make it.

Here are the card samples for my next class at HL. Oct 25th

OMG  I am so much enjoying stamping again !   That was a LONG 4 and a half weeks.   I still have to limit how much and what I use my wrist for as I don't have full range of motion in it yet, so it HURTS like H*LL if I push it too far.    But I am careful not to do that. LOL
So I bet you are wondering WHY I am offering classes two weeks in a row, right?   well--------------to be honest I am preparing you for what is coming NEXT month.  I have so much planned for classes and I don't know for sure HOW MANY will fly, that depends on how many sign up for them.   I won't do a class with less than 3 stampers.   I will post a schedule for the NOVEMBER classes here sometime later this week or perhaps next week sometime so you will know what to expect.
Now here are the card samples for the class to be held Tues Oct 25th.   Morning session at 9:30 AM and evening session at 5:30.   I am going to limit signups to 36 hours before a class just because there are so many classes and lots of prep work for many of them so I need time to get all the paper cut etc.
Ok how here are the samples for Oct 25th.
I won't be showing them  individually anymore as I have to take a pic of all the samples each class and put them on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper with information about the class, and those will be available for handouts at HL.   They don't want anymore sample boards.   Don't ask me-----I just teach there.   It isn't the way I would do it but I don't dictate HL policies.
You can click on the picture for a larger view.

If you wish to attend this class and make these cards, call me or email me before Sunday night.   Class fee is $10 for the 5 all occasion cards, the Christmas card is an extra $2 and all cards include an envelope.
