July Creative Images Meeting

We had nine ladies at last night’s meeting (yes, I am posting before 24 hours is passed) and all but one brought in an exchange card.  How will our treasury make any money that way!  Our theme was H2O/Rain and everybody fit the theme, one way or another. We had lots of rain and several umbrellas!  Click on any pic for a close-up and back to return.

First,we have Cheryl B’s card that is raining umbrellas!  Like a scene out of Seattle where they call them bumpershoots and even have a festival for them. Yes, it rains that much in Seattle.  Next is Cheryl M’s bashful manatee that thinks it might be a mermaid.  Background with glossy CS turned out well.

Eleanor did this tottery old couple with their doggie, letting friends be an umbrella.


Jeannie did this pensive blue lady on the beach under her brolly (that’s what Canadian and Brits call their umbrella).


Here’s my clouds lined with aluminum to pretend to be silver linings.  Pat J made this rain or shine black and yellow brolly, with yellow/gold Stickles.

Pat R made this pretty pink brolly with her rain falling up hill.  Pat J said I was awfully strict for insisting that rain fall down hill, but hey, gravity works!  Therese made this bright little rain on your parade card with my favorite technique, fussy cutting!  The rain and puddles are from a die!

Pat R’s project was Christmas in July. She used an old SU die for the wreath and Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow for the CS.  We could use tiny red jewels or red Stickles for the berries.  Really cute card, Pat.  Thanks.

Project sample

Stampfest was a couple weekends ago in Lakeland.  Cheryl M drew the short straw for having to drive, but decided she’d take herself and the two Pats in a stretch limo. Way to raise the bar for drive sharing, Cheryl! Swiped this pic off Cheryl’s Facebook page and posting it here with her permission.


That’s it for this month.  Thanks for stopping by.  Comments always welcome.
