Cricut--What a wonder for card making

I'm a rubber stamper and greeting card maker. Learning new techniques is fun at the RC on Main in Charles City every third Wednesday.

At home I have a Cricut Personal Cutter, and I LOVE it! Wish I had more time to play with it and create layers.

Our craft group at church is called the UMW Crafters, and we make greeting cards which we sell for $1. All of the proceeds goes toward mission work of the United Methodist Women, including a special scholarship fund for children in the village of Chontal√°, Guatemala, to help pay their school fees. I went on a mission trip with UMCOR there in January of 2007, and we built a house for a 23-year-old widow with 3 children under age 5. Her step-brothers aged 9 and 11 were not in school, so the 5 teachers on the mission team set up a program to send a dozen kids to school. When we came home to Iowa, we began raising the money to get them through grade 6 at least.
