|Patti's box, which included a bunch of white|
and ivory envelopes. The ivory ones will come in
especially handy as I only stock white.
|Pastor's aunt made a batch of these foiled cross cards|
with lovely pressure embossing on the backgrounds.
|Donna included this absolutely gorgeous card for me|
and four beautifully colored book plates.
These stunners will go in extra special books!
Many, many thanks to Donna and Patti for their generosity. Karen's Card Shop has now exceeded $1,600 in sales over two years. Money goes to our Stephen Ministry and to the church's general fund.
And now for college care packages. Nick, his girlfriend, my niece, and a darling young lady from church are on my list for care packages because they are all starting college. I remember how fun it was to get mail when I was in college. So of course I had to make cards to include in the packages.
I made these cards and then found out several of the recipients didn't have to buy a single book for classes this semester. What is wrong with the world?
Times they are a-changin', and books are apparently dead. Even my composition students don't have to buy a book...they use an open educational resource that is available for free online. A printed copy costs $15. I'm happy to see many of my students have sprung for the printed version.
Print can't be dead.
I love it too much.
