My First Operation Write Home Workshop!

The sweet dear in front is 92 yrs. young!
Whoo-Hoo!!! I had my very first OWH workshop today at the VFW!!! These ladies had never made cards before....but they just jumped right on in with both feet,LOL!!! I really was impressed with their talent....they were all very fast learners!! I left a few things at home and it seemed a bit unorganized (on my part!)...but hey....it was my first time,LOL!!! I think everyone had fun and I can't wait to do this again!!! I learned some things along the way......and hopefully my next workshop will be a little better...but they were very gracious and lovely sports ;)

some door prizes and samples


big shot and punches

samples and catalogs

more samples

showing off her lovely card

she was the last one done....I think she's hooked!
We made over 30 cards for the troops....and I took all my samples of cards I've made for the troops since March....can't wait to be able to ship these off.....I'm going to wait until my next workshop in Nov.....so I can fill up a large flat rate box!!!!I had a blast and I hope they did too!!!Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!
