The Decorated Envelope
So you have designed a great looking card....now what? You don't want to just send that great card in a plain white envelope do you? Please join us for our November meeting for a robust Round Robin on decorating ideas for your envelopes. Our volunteers will show us some interesting things to try for your next project. Vellum, making envelopes, large writing, doodle art, stamping and other things you already have in your stash will be used. Some volunteers will be doing demos, and some will be letting you play and take home a little masterpiece. Supplies to bring: any fun, inspiring envelopes you have either received or have done for the sharing table. Last month there were some great projects being shared from our members. Also, please help keep our supply of Stars and Stripe Honor Flight cards and cards for Kathy's House coming in.

She will then get the list organized right after Thanksgiving and emailed out.
