Wow, it’s been a long time coming. I have just been so busy that a few days turned in to 2 weeks here. Hey there-Guess what-It’s my 600th Post! That in itself is an accomplishment if I do say so.
Today’s Celebratory Post is about my Churches Stamp Camp that we had this past Sunday. Our Bible Card Club (Our Redeemer Lutheran Church with School in Delavan, WI) decided that we would hold a big stamping event. I designed all the cards (10) which included 6 Christmas and 4 all purpose greetings. (As always, a Shout out to the S.U. Demonstrators out there who inspired a few of the cards) There was also a gift jar that they could decorate and could fill with whatever at home. The cost was $10 for cards and additional $5.00 for the gift Jar. People were able to reserve their spot-48 did- and many who were not able to attend, pre-ordered finished cards in a pack. This event initially was to help pay down our new roof debt. But it was paid off in the past few weeks. That was huge for us. So, we decided to instead put the money toward the general fund costs. After this event, the final amount collected was $1,035! That is AMAZING!!!!!! I knew my “mad” card making skills would come in handy. We suggested if it didn’t go too badly, maybe we might consider a Spring Stamp Camp with Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc… Since it went better then expected, no one ran away saying it was too much, I’m guessing it’s a safe bet that our Church Card Club will be doing this again. Here are just a few pictures of this event. Once again, I was busy with a Christmas Card Station and couldn’t get closer picture or as many. For those of you coming to my Holiday Stamp Camp in a few weeks, you will see one of these cards-early-here!
My fearless ladies who helped prepare:
I showed everyone they could make knots if they couldn’t do a bow.
The one gal on your left made an amazing little bow. I may have to hire her!
Very Happy Stampers! See-You Too can stamp!

I am so Happy how this event went. Yes, it was a lot of work for many, but now they all have an appreciation of how I get my Holiday stamp camp and other card events up and running every year.
