*Stamp Camp/Class/Workshop Cancellation Policy – If you cancel your reservation at least 48 hours in advance of the event there will be no cost to you.  If you cancel within that 48 hours, I will try and place someone from the waiting list and if that works there will be no charge to you; otherwise you will be responsible for the class fee.  (If a stamp camp - you will receive the material packet with pictures (by email) to make your projects.)  Not all stamping will be done for you, so you may need to adjust the project slightly using what stamps you have available.  Or you can choose to purchase the purchase requirement for the event in merchandise from Lois to meet your commitment.
If no purchase requirement is listed for the specific event (such as Card Classes), you must purchase 2 times the cost of the class/stamp camp/event in merchandise, or simply pay the fee for the event, to meet your commitment.  
If event is cancelled by me – I will notify you and a full refund will be given of any
pre-payment you may have made.

Rosh Hashana Blog Hop
Every year our little Facebook group posts a blog hop showing our artistic side.  Here is my offering.  The stamp set is Stampin’ Up’s Slice of Happiness, which seemed to be just perfect for this holiday.  I have used some retired product to complete the card


I complimented my designer paper with Cajun Craze & Mint Macaron Cardstock, with a Mint Macaron ribbed ribbon. 

Please continue and enjoy the other girls' blogs!
