Two Cards and Cards for Cans

Even though I have officially retired from the ranks of Stampin' Up! demonstrators, I do still l-o-v-e my Stampin' Up! stamps! Today I thought I'd post two cards I made in the last two days.

(Above) This was a re-work of an old card that I started and never finished satisfactorily. It is my firm belief that black and white micro-check ribbon goes with absolutely everything! And it ties up so beautifully...when in doubt, add some micro-check ribbon!
All the products used on this card are now retired...that little "hello" button stamp is one of my favorites!
(Above) Rich Razzleberry is one of Stampin' Up!'s most popular colors and one of my personal favorites too. It's so classy.
The sentiment on this one is one of those $1 stamps from Michaels.
For my Nashville friends: Almost a year ago, I started volunteering at our local food pantry on Fridays. I really enjoy going there and it's become an important part of my life. You can read about The Little Pantry at
I have been toying with the idea of doing a canned food drive for The Little Pantry That Could that combines my love for card-making with my desire to help beef up the shelves at the food pantry. So here's the plan:
On the first Friday night in November, I am hosting a **Cards for Cans** event--the first of it's kind! For each canned item (soup, meat or veggie) you bring as a donation to the pantry, you can make one Christmas card from the card buffet.
I have prepared 8 Christmas Card designs to be featured at Cards for Cans. (I will begin posting them this week.) You can come and choose however many cards you would like to create and "payment" for this adventure will be *one canned good per card*.
How easy is that?
Mark it on your calendar.
Friday, November 2
4 PM until...
Cards for Cans!
Hope to see you there!

Oh! I'm coming it's going on my calendar right now. I vote for the tree card. It was my favorite. Also, if I can do anything to help prep for this affair, Lincoln and I could plan a day for it!

Is the canned food drive/card thing at your house?
