I added a 4-3/4" x 5" piece of the light brown wood grain paper & a 4-3/4" x 1-3/4" strip of the brown grid paper to the card front. I added the "say cheese" die cut to the red tag after cutting off the notched left edge.
Save the button packaging for the bonus card!
Cut a 6" x 9" card base, fold in half opening on the right. Cut a 4-1/4" x 5-3/4" piece of brown wood grain paper and adhere it to the center of the card. For the pinwheel, use the enclosed 3" x 3" orange paper instead of the orange cassette tape paper from the pad (for better contrast). Cut down the "Happiest Wishes on your Birthday!" so it fits on the orange self-adhesive cardstock rectangle.
Cut a 6" x 8-1/2" card base, fold in half opening on the right. Cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/4" piece of the brown grid paper & adhere to the center of the card.
Cut a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" base, fold in half opening on the bottom.

We plan to reopen sometime during the week of January 21st. We'll keep you posted. The new front door will be put in January 14th, and the first phase of the carpet installation also begins on January 14th. The carpeting in the whole store has to be replaced because of the black tire tracks that went from the front door to the cash wrap. To prepare for carpeting, everything had to be moved into one half of the store. Carpet will be ripped out and installed on the empty half and then everything will be moved onto that half so that the remaining area can be re-carpeted. Then everything will be moved one final time, back into it's original position, and we can finally reopen!

On Sunday December 22, a customer who had stopped to purchase a gift certificate had her foot slip from the brake to the accelerator pedal and ended up 20 feet into the store. The front of her vehicle was even with the cash wrap when she came to a stop. We will re-open as soon as we can. At this point in time we cannot even estimate when that will be. Once we talk with the insurance company and get the clean up started we will post updates here to keep you informed of our progress. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
