Card Challenge: We have added something new to The Stamper's Cove! We are having Card Challenges. About every two weeks, we have a card template that is given to anyone that would like to participate in the Card Challenge. You have a week to create your card - based on the template - and bring it back to The Stamper's Cove. Then, for the next week, as customers come into the store they get an opportunity to vote on their favorite card (the 'card maker' is anonymous). The winner of the Card Challenge receives a Gift Certificate to The Stamper's Cove. Here are photos of our the past two winners. The first Card Challenge Winner was Maeve Hilton and the second Card Challenge winner was Janet Epstein! Congratulations!
Moving forward, I will be scanning the template and sending out an email, to make it easier for everyone to participate. We will have the cards from our current Card Challenge on display in the store on Wednesday, August 20th. Be sure to stop by to vote for your favorite!
As you can see, we have a lot going on at The Stamper's Cove in August. If you have any questions about any of the classes or activities mentioned, please call me (941-907-0802). I am happy to help you!
Hope to see you soon at The Stamper's Cove!
