Just Cards, Friday

Anyone coming to my just cards class this Friday 2-8-08? I have not heard from many of you. I know the snow is high, and the wind is cold, and the temperatures are below zero, but I promise I will keep you all warm and stamping! Email me at risa_v@hotmail.com if you plan to come out and make 'just cards'. The class is $10 and starts at 6:30 pm. If I don't hear from at least 4, I will have to cancel so RSVP right away if you are considering coming.

Just a Note has lots of glitter and glitz. It's a simple card, but doesn't lack pizzazz. I always need a card or two that I can make quick and have on hand. I am striving to be better at sending cards to people that need encouragement or gratitude or acknowledgement. This is a spiffy little note you can whip up in a hurry. Supplies used to create this card; misc. cardstock, satin ribbon, Palette Burnt Umber Ink Pad, PrismaColor Pencils, Just a Note (a level C hostess set), Friendly Note and Crystal Lacquer




It's always springtime in a happy heart. That is the sentiment on this little beauty. With all the snow outside I thought a real springtime card would be refreshing. Supplies used to make this card; misc. grosgrain ribbon, Mimi Cardstock, Mimi Soar With It Collection Designer Paper, It's Always Springtime, VersaMagic Tea Leaves and Gingerbread Ink, Palette Burnt Umber.





There is one more card for Friday's class, I am not going to blog it though. I really like how it turned out so I am going to enter it into TAC's monthly contest. TAC offers a monthly contest with five categories. You interpret the category in your submission. If TAC judges you the winner of the category then you win $75 worth of TAC stamps. The contests are fun and if you win, VERY rewarding. The $75 retail is really about $109 with our demonstrator discount. TAC is VERY generous and gives the winner stamps valued at $109. TAC also chooses Demonstrators to design for the catalogs, supplements, and marketing material. When you submit for the contest you get exposure to TAC. That is how I was picked to design so much for TAC.

If you haven't been to http://www.theangelcompany.net/ recently, go take a peek. TAC contest winners can be seen here. You can also see my work displayed on the home page:

Want a chance at designing for TAC? Want to enter this months contests? Then email me and we can talk about how you can be a part of this incredible company! risa_v@hotmail.com
