Wow, what a weekend! It took me a full day to recover, lol! We had a blast at my WCMD event this past Saturday but I was wiped out from lack of sleep leading up to the event and running around the day of. On Saturday, I shared 3 of the 5 cards we made that day. Today I thought I would share the last two plus some pics from the actual event.
Since we are finally in October, which means full speed ahead on Halloween, I used Halloween as our theme for the day. We started out with a Halloween Candy Buffet to keep everyone on a sugar high all day with plenty of energy to get all 20 of their Cards plus Make & Takes done!
At 12:30 we took a break for lunch which consisted of homemade Turkey, Sweet Potato and Quinoa Chili and all the fixin's, Sweet Corn Spoonbread, Corn, Black Bean & Avocado Salsa with tortilla chips and Fluffy Pumpkin Pie Dip (served with Biscoff cookies). I am fortunate to live in a gated community and have a clubhouse at my disposal with a complete kitchen and lots of counter space!
The cute little Bat place cards were made with my Silhouette. They were quick and easy and I even used the sketch pen feature to spell out the name of each dish plus the black edge around the label. After sketching, I changed the pen to a blade and let the machine do its thing and cut out the label. (have I mentioned how much I LOVE my Silhouette?)
I had 10 wonderful women spend the day stamping, laughing, socializing, eating and grumbling about the amount of die cutting I made them do, lol! (in their defense, there were a lot of little pieces to poke out!) We were all a little tired and punch drunk by the end of the day but I think a good time was had by all! But, the best part is they all went home with 20 completed cards and matching envelopes ready to be mailed to some lucky recipients. Here are the last two cards we made on Saturday:
I love the Thinlits Sleigh Die...so detailed and elegant and I love the combination of the Sugarplum and Silver Foil together. In addition to 5 cards I also had 2 Make & Take Projects...one in the morning and one in the afternoon that they could work on between their card projects. Both Make & Take projects were treat packages...one for Halloween and one for Christmas.
How did you celebrate World Cardmaking Day? That's all for today, thanks for stoppin' by!
