Retreat Photos and Contest Winners

Here are some more retreat photos ... and Contest Winners ... including winning cards!

Here are some more of the classes that were offered:

A touch of velvet - Neily Trump

Manly - Frances Brown

And ... Thinking of Spring - Alvie Dielman

Our next Retreat is on the books for November 7-10, 2013 just outside Asheville, NC.   Plan on joining us for all the fun.  Email me for more information and order form.

And now for our contest winners and winning cards...   

Our first contest was an Original Contest.  Anything went.  We encouraged all retreat attendees to submit their favorite card on a board.  We had three gals judge (who did not enter the contest), and they came up with these winners.   1st place, Marcia Higby, 2nd place, Sarah Stroup, and 3rd place, Jan Miller ... (left to right)

And here are the cards ...  1st Place

2nd Place

3rd Place

Our second contest was a sketch contest.  Each girl received a sketch of a card and were supposed to make a card using whatever products they chose to make their card with, following the sketch.   
1st place, Sara Stroup (a two-time winner ... wahoooo!), 2nd Place, Phyllis Miller; and 3rd Place, Sandy Sluder.  (Left to Right)

And here were their winning cards...

3rd Place

CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners and a big THANK YOU to all who participated.   Each winner received a Sale-A-Bration item as their prize.  My goal is to get 100% participation at the Fall Retreat ... but as you know, your time at retreat is YOUR TIME to do as you please.  The contests are there for the fun of it and to hopefully win some nice prizes.   Retreat is just a fun, fun weekend.  Hope to see all of you in November and some new faces, too!

Hope you are inspired ... get those stamps out and start stamping.


Tomorrow is the last day to get your free Sale-A-Bration items.   So get those orders in today!
