I finally arrived at my Stamp/Scrap Retreat yesterday afternoon. I flew into the Greenville/ Spartansburg Airport in South Carolina and then rented a car to carry me and all my STUFF to the Ridgecrest Retreat Center in Asheville, NC. The drive to the retreat center was beautiful with all the changing foliage along the way. I managed to squeeze my clothing and all my supplies into two large suitcases and one small carry-on. All arrived safely without incidence, except for a brief inspection of one of my suitcases by the TSA as indicated by this tag. They were probably wondering what all those scissors and blades were doing in there. LOL! I have been having alot of fun meeting new friends, sharing ideas and attending classes.
I’ve included some of the projects I’ve been working on so far – holiday gift tags using the Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper and a gift card that will be offered in my Holiday Gift Card Stamp a Stack on December 8 and 15 from 6-10 p.m. Take one class or both. Cost is $20.00 for each class. This gift card holder is perfect for the men in your life. Very manly with the woodgrain paper from the Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper pack along with the stately deer from the Winter Post stamp set. When open, the gift card sits in a pocket on the left and your word saying is on a small card to the right.
Will try to post again later tonight with more projects from my retreat. Thanks for checking in with me!
