Creative Images September Meeting

We had a good turnout last night, especially with two returning members.  Welcome back Janice and Theresa!  We took care of business and exchanged our cards - “Pet Friendly” was the September theme.  Holly did the project of a marvelous little plaque.  First up, pet cards.

Lona did this first card with a watercolored puppy and gold paper hole reinforcements masquerading as eyelets, although she has some of those on there, too.

Next is my black and red card featuring a Pekinese (with no “g” in it!) with his bone which is almost as big as he is. 

Kathy's Pekingnese 

Holly’s little fussy cut terrier is so cute!  She even added red to the flowers and I think she did Crystal Effects on one of the butterflies.

Therese did a great job coloring this cute doggie being towed in the wagon.

Tange tried to convince me that people have spiders for pets!  He does have a lovely “web” and pretty green eyes.

Linda made this bright, glittery fishy card.  Love the fishy brads.

Linda's fishies

Ella made this card with a die cut doggie and bone.  I still have paw prints all over my heart from my little Lady.

Ella's diecut puppy

I was present at the birth of Pam’s little doghouse.  She made the doggie using punches and her husband decreed that his name should be French.

Connie made this pretty fussy cut birdie in a die cut tree and layered with designer papers.

Here’s where Theresa’s “Just Because You’re You” card goes, but picture didn’t turn out.  Sorry.

Jeannie made this card with two cats that are definitely “children in fur coats.”

Janice’s computer room is full of Mickey Mouse collectibles, so she had plenty of inspiration for this happy card.  Love the way she layered two Modern Label punches and constructed little jeweled Mickey’s!

Holly did the project this month, a little chipboard plaque with buttons, antique-looking photos and a cool saying.  Here’s her sample.  I’m sticking a magnet on the back of mine and putting it on the fridge.

In order, the following finished projects were made by Connie, me, Janice and Linda.

Not everyone gave me their project to take pictures of, but here’s the last three, made by Lona, Theresa and Pam.

That’s it for this month.  Next month’s theme will be “Thinking of You,” and we’ll have an “Old World” ATC swap for those interested.

Thanks for stopping by.  Comments always welcome!

Where to start! Wow Lona, how creative using the gold reinforcements. I love what you did with the cork, and the brads. I always enjoy your cards. Kathy, your Pekinese black and red card is so cute. Love the big bone. Holly's terrier reminds me of Toto. Gotta love that little dog. Therese's little boy card, with the wagon really is darling and colorful. Tange, great spider card! How creative using the SU background stamp as a spider web. Pam, your french doggy house really made me giggle. Cute dog with the punches too. Pam always has really fun and creative cards to present. Really enjoyed Jeannie's card with the kitties. Will have to remember to use that children in fur coats. I have a sister that would love that.
Finallyyyyyyy Your little button projects are just wonderful! There were so many fun things to look at this month! Thanks for sharing all the great pics Kathy. I know how time consuming it is to blog all these works of art, but I so enjoy seeing them.

What a fantastic comment from Dee! She has said most of what I would say too :) Love this theme with all the pets but am really really not sure about that creepy spider!!! Even with "lovely" webs and "pretty" green eyes!!! EEP! \
I adore Pam's punch doggie!
The button projects are wonderful too
Thank you for sharing
