Christmas Card Shoebox Swap

One of my favorite pre-holiday events is the Christmas Card Shoebox Swap. Each person designs a card, then brings the supplies for 16 people to make their card. Everyone leaves the swap with 16 different cards! It's a great way to get the holiday inspiration going and have some cards to send. We already have several spots filled, so contact me today if you want to come!
Here's the info:
When: November 22nd, 10-2 (Boxed lunch and snacks included.)
Order Deadline: November 7th
Where: Cindy's house, 110 Hogan in Plum Creek 268-3900
How much: $12
How many: We have 16 total spots available--and they're going fast!

What to do:
Design a Christmas card using all SU! stamps and paper (stamps can be retired).
Cards should the standard 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" finished size.
Cards should have at least one layer.
Pre-cut the pieces to make 16 of your card. (You don't have to pre-stamp.) Bag these individually in an envelope or baggie.
Place all the items needed including stamps and ink to make your card in a shoebox or plastic tub along with your sample.
You'll get to rotate around the rooms and make one of everyone else's card!
Be sure to invite a friend and sign up ASAP before space runs out!
