Sunday little Grace was selling GS cookies at church after worship. Her dad is “cookie mom,” and Gracie was really working the room! After I placed my order, I quizzed her on the Girl Scout Promise. It’s been revised since I was in Troop 749!
All week I’ve been singing (in my head) a song we used to sing at meetings: “The more we get together, together, together; the more we get together, the happier we’ll be.” I had two stamp camps this week — three more in the next five days!) and my preparation has been intense. But it is so very, very satisfying to be with people who are having fun doing something creative! I’m happier, yes, I am, when we’re together.
In celebration of Thin Mints, I’ll share another of our “Bling in the New Year” cards this month. Have you ever used Heat & Stick Powder? That’s what’s holding the glitter onto the stamped image in this card. It’s pretty simple (and the directions enclosed with H&S are very understandable): Stamp image in VersaMark (or Craft) ink. Apply H&S. Heat only until shiny. Apply glitter. (I heat it again, briefly, just because it makes me feel better!)
