Since two of my cards I am doing for my workshop are using sets that are retired which is a big no-no, i have listed other sets that can be used and here are two examples I have done using those sets. I guess I should have used the angel from the stamp set and not the holy family, but they will get the idea. I also wanted them to see the difference in using vellum card stock verses paper vellum on the snowflake card.

I am getting ready for my first big workshop this weekend in Richmond. I have already showed the cards below but for 12 people making 12 cards each, that is a lot of cutting for me. I sure hope they enjoy their experience and I can get more bookings. This next month (November) is a busy one for me. I have the workshop in Richmond on the 2nd. Stampin' Up Regionals in Virginia Beach the following weekend then hopefully I can schedule another workshop for the weekend of Nove 15th and then the following weekend is Homecoming/Parents weekend at ODU where I will finally get to see my daughter Charlotte play in the Monarch Marching Band newly formed this year in preparation of the new football team that will begin its season next year. She is also a member of the pep band that plays at the basketball games. I will get to see her play in a parade, a football scrimmage and at the homecoming basketball game against the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I am really excited. Then it is Thanksgiving and break for Charlotte. Then it's December and I don't even want to think about that. I am not at all ready for Christmas, I don't even have my halloween decorations up yet and my house is one of those houses everyone comes to. People have already told me that they are coming. I have some of Charlotte's friends that still live in the area coming to help me out Halloween. Charlotte said she would come but has Band until 7 that night and wouldn't make it in time. It is the kids that make it fun for the Trick and Treaters.
I had a nice showing at the White Stone Fall Festival last weekend. I of course spent more than I made but I got a large framed pressed flower arrangement. It is absolutely beautiful. See pictures below. I also made some contacts that may be interested in some workshops.

The Stamp Shack commissions a new stamp every year for Christmas and we get to vote on which one we want. This is the stamp that won and it is the one I voted for. I embossed the image and then colored in the areas not covered by the embossing. This is just my first design. Others will emerge as I think about it. I just got the stamp today and had to do something right away.

For those of you who don't do Halloween, or want to do a Christmas card, I have decided to change one of the cards to Christmas and here it is. This is one of three card that has been sent in to be considered for publication in Paper Works magazine, so you may be the first to make it.

I had a wonderful time at the Montross Fall Festival this year. The weather was beautiful and the parade was better than I have seen in a long time. I had a booth and sold some of my cards and made some contacts for doing some workshops. I missed seeing my daughter play at Midlothian but here is a link to YOU TUBE where you can see them perform.
