The Tuesday Hostess Group

This is my Tuesday Hostess Group.  Glenda, Linda, Cindy and my right hand woman, Norma.  You may notice the picture at the back of the table.  That is a picture of Patty Holscher who also belongs to the group.  We have her picture on the table cause she lives in Virginia and is participating in the Hostess Club long distance.  Time to think out side the box so we have her picture sitting there to remind us she is with us.  :-)

 Glenda and Linda are filling out the questionnaire I gave them so I could learn a little about their styles and what they like in color and cards.

Cindy and Norma carpool together to the Club which is a great GREEN idea.  :-)

Thursday's Card Club

 Thursday I am happy to have a new group of stampers attending my Card Club.  Here Barb finds it easier to stand to tie her bow than to sit.  I agree, often I stand to finish off a card.

 The Thursday Night Group.  Jan, Janis, (short) Barb, Carol and Barb.  What a group.  We laughed all evening.  But next Thursday Jan and Janis are going to be separated.  LOL

Working on those bows.  What a great job they all did.  This is going to be a fun six months.
