This month we worked on cards for the CG Alliance next door. They have many local businesses, charities, and organizations as members of their coalition. The Alliance wants to send cards to their members whenever the member appears in the newspaper, so we made “Congratulations, Saw You In The News!” cards for their on-going project! 

We used this card as a guideline: Embossed paper on top, embellishment somewhere on top, plain paper on bottom, with pre-printed “Congratulations” and “Saw you in the news”. 

I love how they all came out so differently, even with a guideline to follow! Different colors, different embellishments, some creative shapes, but they still kept to the basic pattern. Click here to see the rest!

Our next monthly party is THIS Wednesday, May 11th, from 5-7PM at our office (Yang and Horsley Dentistry – 325 E. Cottonwood Lane). We’ll be making cards for the troops in honor of Memorial Day (end of May). This project is quite special, as we’ll be helping a boy from Surprise provide hand-written Thank You cards for EVERY active US military member around the world – that’s over 180,000 cards!!
