  4. Hi Marie,
    I just heard about your class and while I can't take it right now (new puppy, and currently in a Silhouette class), I do think it will be fun in the future!!

    Mostly I wanted to CONGRATULATE you on being a new teacher and I know I'm sure this will be a big hit. I am very behind lately and MUCH out of the Loop, pretty much since I adopted my little Rescue Puppy in APril. I'm also now devoting a lot of my craft time to creating cards for this wonderful Rescue Group to sell for a fundraiser and also recently did a major purge in my craft room. I donated a SUV Load of stuff to their huge fundraiser yard sale coming up this weekend!!

    The puppy is doing well...she's still growing and is so sweet but quite a handful too, even so I LOVE her nad her big brother so much and I'm so lucky to have these two little wonderful companion dogs...they are such a JOY!!

    Some day...I hope to catch up with all my groups again and see you all more often! In the meantime....I am totally thirlled for you and hope it's a HUGE Hit!!
