November Creative Images Meeting

We had a good meeting last night, though several ladies couldn’t attend for various reasons, i.e., out of town, injured, schedule conflicts.  We got a lot done and Jeannie has fired off an e-mail with the information on the upcoming Christmas stamp camp.  Our treasury didn’t do well last night in the fine department as all of us in attendance brought in an exchange card!  100 percent participation!  Our theme was “Celebrate the Season of Your Choice.”  Without further ado, here are the exchange cards.  As always, you can click on any picture to enlarge it.

First up, Lona’s coppery Autumn scene.  I believe she embossed it in copper, too.  The layer under the copper layer looks like wood veneer.  Lovely coloring job.

Next is Linda’s Christmoose.  She says it’s a reindeer.  Love the fussy cutting and googly eyes!

This is Holly’s mistletoe and snowflakes Christmas card.  Love the sentiment.

Ella did this bright Valentine’s Day with a dressy theme.  It’s was all glittery IRL.

Gale made this lovely blue snowflake card.  Look closer to see all the shiny silver glittery CS.  She must miss snow, too!

Jeannie submitted this lovely bouquet done with Twinkling H2O’s as her Spring bouquet.  I have one of these someplace.  Gorgeous!

Rosie embossed with gold on blue this lovely Joy card.

Ursula colored and fussy cut this cute couple of Pilgrim turkeys.  Gorgeous leaf brads along the right. I got this in the exchange and will be mailing it off to my niece’s family for Thanksgiving.  Four kids under 8!  They’ll love it!

Therese brought this cute little Halloween witch experiencing aerodynamic difficulties.  Lots of fussy cutting and watercoloring.  Spooooky!

Last of the exchange cards is mine.  Scenic Season and Teeny Wishes stamp sets, sponging and masking done on this Thanksgiving card.

Kathy's Trees

Jeannie did gift cards for our project.  She brought lots of samples as she gives lots of gift cards.  She has them for all occasions and as thank yous.  Here’s four of her samples.  All are gorgeous with fibers, layers, bellies, pearls, lace and embossing.

Jeannie provided the template and I think we all got the project done.  Nobody showed me theirs, so only one I have a pic of is mine!  All stamps are from SU’s Winter Post set.

Here’s pictures of all the ladies in attendance, including Jeannie and me.

For next month’s stamp camp, the ladies decided that in addition to the altered lunch tin, they wanted to try and finish the acrylic angel ornament that we ran out of time to finish last year.  As there are lots of new members who’ve never seen her before, I said I would put a pic on my blog and here she is.

Therese's Sample

That’s it for this month.  I can’t go to Stamp Camp as I will be in Alabama, so others will have to get me pics!

Thanks for stopping by.  Comments always welcome.

I recognised your wonderful card straight away :) I want to comment on everything but I just can't get past guffawing over the "Christmoose" hehehe I certainly needed a good giggle! Jeannie's little gift cards are very sweet and that angel looks like a wonderful project. Love the pic with my dear Kathy in it.
hugs, Tracy

Hey Kathy,
Thank you so much for sharing all your pictures. I wanna live by you so I can come play, too.
I love the angel you girls are working on. Where do you think I can find one?

These cards are wonderful. What a great choice, to do your favorite holiday. I am just in awe every time I see you post the cards from your Monday night gatherings. These ladies are really talented! You had such a variety of holidays covered. I especially love your card, and Jeannie's too. Thanks for taking the time to share your personal photo's, especially the one with you in it. You look great in red!
