September Stamp Club

I'm so excited for this year!!  I was able to join a 10 month stamp club and we had our first meeting this past Wednesday!  We made 2 beautiful cards and enjoyed each other's company and some snacks.  I also learned some new techniques that will help me with my creations.  Win win win win!  I've already sent out this birthday card to a friend :)

This was my favorite card of the night.  I love the colors, the ribbon, the button, and especially the paper.  So much, that I purchased a package of the paper and can't wait for it to arrive!  Part of being in the club requires you to make a purchase of $20 or more each month - and believe me, that isn't hard.  But this year we are on a pretty tight budget as we are pouring all our extra money into paying off our condo.  So far I've been a good girl and restrained myself!

A view of the inside of the card.  My husband and I took a nice walk outside this afternoon and enjoyed the beautiful fall weather.  The changing colors of the leaves are my favorite part about fall.  What do you like best about fall? <3 JEM
