Card Swap Registration Closed - Garage Sale Coming Up.

We have nine people signed up for the card swap now.   Registration closed on Saturday, so that means ladies you have to make 9 cards of your choice with some simple guidelines that I've posted again below to remind you.   

Remember to make sure that the card you design and give away is one that you would be thrilled to receive!  Strive for it to be your best work and make sure it is generic enough that the recipient will be able to use it. 

Your cards are to be completed and in the store by August 18th please, ready for distribution August 25th.

The guide lines for this month are simple
-There will be three standard sizes for you to choose from.  They are: 
4 1/4 x 5 1/2  or  5 3/4 square,  or  4 1/2 x 6.  
These will then fit standard envelopes allowing the recipient to be able to mail them.
You don't have to supply the envelope.
-There must be a minimum of two layers to the card.  That is a card base and at least one layer on the front.
-There must be at least one thing used on the card that has been purchased at the Craft Nook.  That could be the stamp, paper, embellishment etc.
Have you signed up for the garage sale yet?  That date is fast coming up, so don't delay.  Go through your stash and find all those things that you no longer love and use, but that someone else would love to have.  It's really easy and you have the opportunity to change your unloved "stuff" into "stuff" you've been aching to have. 
All you do is sort some of your "stuff," bring it into the store, we will display and sell it for you and you receive a gift certificate to purchase some new product for yourself.  Some of the ladies sold up to $100.00 in the last garage sale enabling them to purchase product that had been on their wish lists.

We're going to be up early again tomorrow to watch the Men's Eight Rowing Team compete in the Repechage.  We had of course hoped that they wouldn't have to compete in this race, but then sometimes it's good not to have too long a break between the first heat and the finals. 
We were up at five in the morning to watch the first heat and although Canada's placement wasn't what we would have wanted, once it became apparent that they weren't going to come in first and get the automatic move to the finals, they conserved their energy for the Repechage tomorrow morning.  So our alarm is set for 4:30 am this time to see the heat at 4:50 am.  Many family and friends in Bracebridge and Belleville will all be tuned in at the same time.
Here's a photo of my sister, brother-in-law and nephew's daughter watching the first heat at Dorney in England.  My sister is standing wearing the red Canada shirt.
There were many more family, cousins and aunt, on the other side of the waterway who took this photo.
I've finished my scrapbook page and will scan and show it to you next posting.  Linda's girls finished there tie died T-shirts so they'll be posted for you to see too.  I also have a shadow box frame that my sister made for her sister...oh that would be my sister too...LOL.  Couldn't show it to you before, because it was a surprise for our English sister. 

And now, last but not least, the blog special for this week.  Remember it's available to you from Thursday of this week until Monday of next week.
This time we have STUDIO CALICO-Memoir Collection. This package contains one 6-1/4x5 inch package of die-cut chipboard buttons in assorted shapes sizes. 62 total pieces.
The regular pricing on this item is $5.79.  The Blog Special is just $2.89.  don't delay with this one, because there are a limited number on the shelf, and don't forget to mention to one of us that you saw it on the blog, so that you get the special pricing.

Until later, Happy Crafting
