Never Too Old (To Learn Something New)

Prepping for the 6th annual Mother’s birthday luncheon!!!

It’s getting to be that time of year again – time for the annual Mother’s birthday lunch!  The invitations are done & most went out in yesterday’s mail.  I still have a few more to send out today & then that task will be completed.

In February, I bought the stamps the PO had for Valentine’s Day.

As a software junkie, I can’t say enough good things about the two main apps that I used to make the invitations.  To make the cards, I used Craft Artist 2.  To print the envelopes, I used Cam Development’s Label Designer Plus Deluxe.  I have used both apps for several years & they are well worth the money, if you love making greeting cards.
