2 of 4 cards...


hmmm...here are 2 of the 4 cards we made on Thursday at the Sr. Center. I took pics of all 4 but only 2 uploaded here. Anyway,
the 1st card was inspired by Allison Y. We embossed the stems from Pocket Silhouettes using Versamark and clear EP. My Mom help me (a lot) in creating the Lovely Lilac card. Little dots of White gel pen added some interest to this simple card.

"Frank" mini fundraiser...

I cased this cute Frankenstein card. There is no stamping involved...just creatively placed punched shapes and some sponging. We cut his hair with scissors and drew his mouth and scar with a marker. At my Sr. Center class, I held a mini fundraiser. I donated the supplies and I prepped 16 card kits. I asked anyone making this card to donate $1.00 to the Center. (Their budget was recently cut by $12,000...ouch!) All 16 kits were gone in a flash!!! I will create more mini fundraiser projects for future classes. This was a fun experience for all.

Thursday's cards 10/9/08

#1 Cuttlebugged bird


#2 Birthday "cheater" card


#3 Lori L's design w/o the Dazzling Diamonds ;)


#4 changed the color of Lori's card to Riding Hood Red

I want to thank my fellow "Rubber Dubber" Lori L. for the swap card inspiration. Card #3 is almost identical to her's except we used the Word Window punch to add a "popped up" greeting. Lori's card had Dazzling Diamonds glitter added to the center of the flower, our's did not. I will add DD glitter to my card, and mentioned to the Sr. Group this is something they can do at home. And #2 "cheater" card uses a blank note card...well, it's blank on the inside but had the stripes printed on the outside. I chose Baha Breeze and Rose Red to coordinate with the stripes. Quick and easy! Card #1 don't you just love that bird? One of the ladies at Table 3 (Hi CR!) used colored pencils to enhance the bird on her card. I loved her idea! I hope Stampin' Up will carry their own line of exclusive embossing folders...I just LOVE them.

Swaps....NOT!!!...


I just don't care for these cards I created, so I did something else...Mr. Twigster is cute, but I'm not an earth tone kinda gal. I love flowers and feminine colors. If you noticed my banner...how couldn't ya...it's gigantic and I don't know why...anyway, that's a pic of the roses I gave my DD for her 18th b'day...feelin' old here...just a few days after her b'day I turned 50!!!! I'm officially a member of the Sr. Center ;o) Thanks for stopping by! Have a terrific day!
