This Post was part of the SUDSOL Blog Tour on August 1

The tour gave Demonstrators ideas for  cards and workshop Make N Takes.  For customers these are quick and easy projects. I joined SUDSOL because of the resources available on their home site and their e-mail list which includes card shares and demo questions. SUDSOL is home to many resources such as forms, galleries, templates, class projects, blog help, etc. I am so glad to be a part of this organization and all demonstrators are welcome to join.You can see more of my samples in the SUDSOL Gallery – but you'll need to be a member or trial member!

My first project is a quick, clean and simple thank you card.
