March Creative Images Meeting

We had a great turnout last night, only missing a few, especially, Linda.  Our hearts are with you, Linda.  We collected dues and will get it to you ASAP.  There were 15 ladies there last night, including Lona’s guest, her husband Herman, who even turned in his own blinged exchange card.  Our exchange card theme this month was “Add Some Bling,” and we all did that, for sure.  We also had our first challenge of the year, using a coaster, and Tange did the project, a darling little Easter card with punched bunnies.  Click on any picture to see details, then “back” to return.

First up, our exchange cards, starting with Dani’s ship, a tri-fold card, closed . . .  

Dani's ship closed

. . . then opened.  Love the sentiment.

Therese made her birdcage card for the challenge using a coaster and won first prize!  A bird is out of the cage and an Asian lady in it!

Dani made this purple and green card for her challenge.  I think she die cut the leaves and fruit from the coaster to win second prize in the challenge.

Tange used her favorite saying on this spiral bound post-it note cover made with two coasters, to win third prize.

Tange's challenge

Honorable mention in our challenge are Theresa’s shadow box, Janice’s vase of candy and Lona’s Treasures.


Last, but not least, we have Tange’s Easter card project.  This is a pic of Ella’s finished bunny card.

That’s it for this month.  Next month’s exchange theme is Pretty in Pink.  See ya’ll then.

I sure enjoyed looking at the creations from Stamp club this month. The birdcage is just darling with the bird outside! What a great idea you had using a card in your stash to add some bling to. Some of us would call that very green. Also love the bunny card. What a great card for Easter. Thanks for taking the time to share this wonderful collection of artwork with us around the country.
