New Inly Antics & Darcies Boards & It's Top Secret Envelope Time

Hi Everyone

Hope this crazy heat isn't getting you down.  It's perfect weather to stay indoors and work on your scrapping and card making.  Our Friday night Crop for Charity sponsored by Prima Marketing raised $360 for Second Chance Saving Grace.  Click here to read more about this great Charity. We had 24 croppers and they had a wonderful evening.  They even still cropped when we lost power!  Kim took a photo.  At least the flash was working on the camera.

We received some new stamps for our card makers from Inky Antics and Darcies.
