MANY THANKS...

Hello Dear Blogging Friends... I sincerely appreciate all your GET WELL WISHES sent during my recuperation from a recent back injury. Even though it was a rather simple injury (reaching, twisting and lifting a heavy box while at home), the pain was unbearable at times. Your comments, emails and cards were very encouraging. When I saw this stamp in the new "Celebrate the Everyday" Spring Catalog, I was inspired to make this card for YOU...

Sweet Sorbet

WORLD CARD MAKING DAY...

WCMD-1

 

Guests were warmly welcomed at every entrance...

WCMD-2

. . .

WCMD-3

Product displays were abundant...

WCMD-4

...with cards and 3-D projects...

WCMD-5

And many photos were taken...

WCMD-6

We even had MY DIGITAL STUDIO up and running...

WCMD-7

Demonstrators offered catalogs and product information

on their service tables...

WCMD-8

There were 58 Boxes - ALL IN A ROW!

(So many cards. So little time!)

WCMD-9

Stampers received a tally sheet to make their choices.

Their selections were then pulled from numbered dividers...

WCMD-10

They chose as many card sets or as few as they desired.

Each set was packed in it's own envelope...

WCMD-11

Six local demonstrators worked as a team assisting stampers...

WCMD-12

(Denise, Diane, Diana, Marlene, Linda & Rhonda)

. . .

From 9AM until 2PM they stamped...

WCMD-13

They barely noticed when we looked over their shoulders...

WCMD-14

What's a party without yummies???

WCMD-15

Anyone for fruit, pastry or candy???

WCMD-16

They must have enjoyed the day...

Because many asked if we had set a date for the spring event!

WCMD-17

2014 SPRING STAMP CAMP!  And you're invited!
