The best greeting cards anyone ever keeps, are those made by hand. Either the crayon scribble of a child or a heartfelt note by a friend, are more likely to be kept forever than a generic card bought at the grocery store for $2 or $4.

 The best solution? Make your own!  Come to my home on October 1Oth  from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and bring your own paper, cutter, and adhesives and you can use my stamps and inks to make cards of your own.  This is a  limited and a free event.
RSVP by email at cystamper@hotmail.com  to hold your place at a table.
