Latitude Margaritaville’s FIRST Cardmaking Class!

We had our very first cardmaking class yesterday at Latitude Margaritaville, Hilton Head (South Carolina)! What fun!! We had 10 very enthusiastic participants...who were willing to try just about anything!! Here are samples of the cards we all made!!

We made an embossed birthday card...and a "get well card" . . .

Here's a fun "pocket" thank you card . . .

And a super easy "Clean and Simple" card (This one is my favorite!) . . .

Next month's classes will focus on "Christmas" and "Winter Holiday" cards! Here's just one of the three we'll be making . . .
Gotta run . . .
Have a great day!!

Okey dokey . . . on to my newest creation . . . my FIRST CHRISTMAS CARD of 2019!!!

This card features Mo Manning's "Fruitcake"! I have no idea how I missed this one last year! Oh ya . . . probably because I was deep into moving from Virginia to South Carolina!! But . . . OMG . . . when I saw this image and sentiment - a quote from Jimmy Buffett - I knew it needed to be my first Christmas card of 2019!!! You see, we moved to a retirement community called Latitude Margaritaville! And, my husband and I have been "Parrotheads" for 2 decades!!! So, it was just meant to be!! This cute digi image (complete with sentiments) can be found HERE in Mo's online store! Here's a close-up . . .
