Diana, as I recall last year there was a release in December, but it was not a kit release. I think that's when Theresa's first Framescape set was released, and a companion set to the Holiday Frame that we got when we went to Christmas at the Village. I don't remember what else was released then. Also, as I recall, the first mini kit was released in November. I have all that stuff on my computer at home. I'm also hoping for a Black Friday Sale, as well as an after Christmas sale (like I don't have enough stamps as it is).

Thanks Judy! I need some paper, etc. and like to order all at once. Will watch for the sale also! I’m like you, sure don’t need more stamps but if any, would like more for inside of cards - sayings. Can do them on the computer but really like to stamp them. I do have a laser printer so can print and foil if I get the time.

Question for Gina.  Will you be adding ink colors to you line up.  I would like to suggest a light grey and a dark grey please please.  I only like to use Gina K inks.


I agree. I have often wished I had some grey inks too!

Gray inks AND cardstock!!!  LOL  Been waiting for those colors myself!  :-))

Hey all.  What do you do with all your cards from your challenges?  I have no local entity that I can  locate that could use them.  I have many different themes of cards.  I will send them just need to know where.  I have one more place I am checking into on Monday locally but if they say no thank you then I am done trying to find a place here.


Besides family and friends who get the cards I also send them to shut-ins from my church especially at holidays. Or you can box up a few of them and give them as gifts to people. Several people in the nursing homes in the past loved to get cards that I had made so maybe there are people in those kinds of facilities that you might want to remember. They love to get mail.

I send a lot of birthday and thinking of you cards, so I add my challenge cards to my stash. I made some Christmas cards during some of the challenges, so those went to my stash as well.

Hi Melissa:  Believe it or not, I actually use all my cards most of the time. One or two I give away for others to use, and some I am occasionally lucky enough to sell, particularly when I was still running my B & B. I have a lot of friends around the world and I love to remember birthdays - so everyone gets a card. At Christmas I make and send about 100 cards and receive almost as many in return. I used to make all the office (hubby) cards whether it be a thank you, sympathy or birthday and I did all my husbands client birthdays as well. Now he is retired that will stop as the purchasers of his block of business are not interested in doing it. As a member of a yacht club my function was secretary and this particular club loved to send out b'day and when necessary sympathy cards so I did all those as well. The club paid for postage and for a few supplies if I asked. Recently I found a website blog where the blogger was asking for cards to be donated and I sent a bunch to them last year. Of course, now I can't find the blog and I've spent 15 minutes looking at my bookmarks to see if I saved it there without success. That said I then put in a search and here are some links that I found: http://cardcareconnection.com/    http://diycraftsmom.com/23-charities-love-handmade-crafts/   http://createtodonate.org/handmade-cards-for-charity-cardz-for-kidz/   http://planetpalsblog.blogspot.ca/2015/10/what-to-do-with-surplus-g.... These are all different with some good ideas for donating. Hope this is helpful. 

hugs,

I donate to a children's home near my home.  They like specific ones: birthday, hello, thanks, and blank.  I used to send cards for a group I belonged to, which included sympathy, new baby, get well, congratulations.  I did see that Jennifer McGuire has donation ideas sometimes and right now is a Christmas card drive for nursing homes.  Maybe see if there is a children's home or children's center that would like some of your cards, or a nursing home.

I just added a tag to the challenge but the discussion was closed. I thought it was open  until 8 o'clock CST?

If it was a scene with a matching card - it is there Verna. I just commented on it. Also I noticed something new when I went to add the comment - it had one of those I'm not a robot thingys. Maybe the reason it appeared closed is cos, a change was being made to the site.
