This is my Hostess Club's last official get together and then we'll be restarting in the fall. If you are interested in coming over to my house once a month for a fun project and ordering just around $10, you'll have the chance to be the hostess with all of the rewards for one of those months! I have 3 spots opening up so please let me know if you are interested! {Or interested in setting up a long distance club for some of you and your friends! wink, wink!!}

So here is our card for this month - these two sets will be featured in the new catalog I believe and I really liked the donut the least of all of the images but I just fell in love with it all here on this card!

My friends thought the Kraft paper was designer paper - what fun to show them how to stamp in white and then color in with colored pencils. It really looks great in real life!

All stamps and papers from The Angel Company - colored pencil/gamsol

I found the directions over on SCS but I would say practice with a scrap of paper first - I had to adjust some of my folds to get it to lay right, but the second time around went so much easier! Also a quick tip: I marked my cut line with a light pencil line first, scored my horizontal lines and then cut the veritcal line last. Oh yes, my stair step portion was only 3" to give me a wider solid panel but you will see that you can play with these dimensions once you practice it first!

Have fun!!
