I haven't posted for awhile because I've been so busy this month with "LIFE" in general. I wanted to let you all know that Stampin' Up! will announce June 1st stamps that will be retiring. Once they're retired, you won't be able to purchase them again. The list will be posted on the web site for you to look at.
Nancy & I will be having specials each week of June and you should have received our calendar by e-mail with the class schedules and specials. I hope that you can make some of our classes.
Also, mark your calendars for July 19th! Nancy & I will have an open house to showcase projects from the new catalog. It will be a lot of fun and we'll be having door prizes, projects for you to do, and food! It will be a great time to bring a friend who has never stamped before.
Now for this months project. It is a very easy card to make. Easy is better, I say. Because at this time of the year we are busy with graduations, weddings, showers and of course, all those thank you notes that you have to write for all of those activities.
