How I kept out of trouble last night...

Spent last night out with my good friend Sandy Mayfield at Stampology Chicago. This is a wonderful stamp shop located in Chicago. The owner Dave and the staff are friendly, helpful and fabulous. We created these fun holiday cards using the Hanko Designs Paper Quilting technique. Not only did we create four cards (all supplies included), we feasted on pizza and pop---all part of the class!! We also had the opportunity to meet some lovely artsy women (who live really close to Sandy) who invited us to come back and stamp with them on Friday for a special class making cards using Adirondack Daubers. This class includes an Italian meatball and pasta feast. The food is being provided by a tiny Italian Deli (can't remember the name right now) that is two doors down from Stampology Chicago. Sandy, Harriet (not available last night) and I ate there a couple of weeks ago on Dave's recommendation. We all had the Italian beef---IT WAS THE BEST ITALIAN BEEF I have ever had!! It was home made beef that was sliced to order for each sandwich. Not the kind that sits boiling in gravy all day. Last night Sandy and I stopped in for a small snack prior to class and shared a meatball sandwich. Yummy meatballs and awesome marinara sauce. The sandwich's are only $3.50 each!!! Unbelievalbe!! They have all kinds of pasta's, sauces and goodies to go. I think I need to stock up my freezer for some easy, tasty, homemade dinners! Enough about food---here are the cards from last night!

Looks like you're having a fun time! These are so cool! :) I was wondering how you were, since I hadn't seen any blog activity for a while. I know I owe you a response to your email. I'll do that tomorrow. Busy art day planned! *hugs*
