Card Club Night

A few months say in March of this year I started going to a local Park Rapids church for card night. So we gather every second Tuesday of the month to make five cards for five dollars. We have a blast at making the cards and time just flies by and then you go home to admire your cards, or at least that's what I do. This month the cards turned out super cute.

The first card we completed was Diane's card. We used one of my favorite stamp sets on this one...Tart and Tangy. Love it! We used velum for the glass. We also used crystal effects for the rimmer. Inside the card is stamped "You brighten my day!" and then you can add a little packet of Crystal Light lemonade, too cute!

The second card we made was for a man's birthday. The designer of this card was Jo and she had a wonderful idea of using paper that resembled wood and then used stamps that contained hammers, screwdrivers and such manly tools. I loved the brads on this one.

The designer of our third card came from a SU Demonstrator, JaNell. What a treat to use some items from the new catalog. New paper Baja Breeze was used with Chocolate Chip and So Saffron. And don't even get me started on the new Scallop Edge Punch. Must have, and ASAP! We also used the new Dreams du Jour set. What a fun card it turned out to be.

The designer of our fourth card was Kathy. I'm not sure if the paper used was from SU, but I loved the combo of the green and brown. The stamped image was colored in using pencils and Gamsol. What a beautiful stamp, so outdoorsy. I will miss Kathy and her wonderful cards. She told us last night that she will be moving back to Iowa. Good luck, girl and we will all miss you!

Our last card is so clever. It is for someone that is retiring and let me tell you, it is sooo cute I would consider retiring. Oh, I forgot...silly me, you have to have a full time job to do that. *wink Well anyhow, the card was made using punches. The paper is really neat, too. It is silver with glitter in the dark stripes. Inside the pocket is pocket watch and the sentiment inside reads "The daily grind has been left behind, Time to kick back and Relax!" Thanks Deb for such a neat card.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you enjoyed looking at these blurry cards. LOL I sure hope that I get better camera skills soon. I do have to say that this is my first time using cards as props, so I'm going to chuck it up to new kid on the block routine. =)

See you next time. Happy Trails!
