(Hobby Lobby has lots of good wrapping choices this year)

A: 4 packets per person~ that way each person can take home 2 dozen!

"Thanks to the wonderful sisters in Christ who came to help get the Carver Good News Club prepared for their upcoming semester.
I think everyone had nice fellowship as the cut things out, strung beads together, stuffed party bags and learned more about one another and Good News Clubs.
Thanks again, Adrienne and Debbie for your vision of a service club."

~Sharon Hunter


 "I wanted to offer a huge thanks! It was so fun to see everyone, and work together, too. And what a blessing to me, personally, and to our new Good News Club Workers that will be learning how to do things and not have to also have to do so much prep work. I think the other GNC ladies are jealous of me, cause I had you! Carver is blessed!!"   ~Amber Pitts

(The trick to make the whipped cream last a long time: beat 1c Cream until soft peaks form, then add 1/4c. Sour Cream, and finish beating. I popped the cake in the fridge for 1-1.5 hours before serving, and it looked great....They say it would last/look good even longer if you popped the cake in the freezer for 30m to 1h (to set it)....)
