Creative Images October Meeting

Before I start on the meeting, I have to wax poetic about the change in the weather.  Thank God it’s COOLER!  I have woke up the last three days to a house that is cooler than the setting of 74 that has been on the A/C since April, 24/7.  I actually started the last few days in a top that has sleeves!  Short ones, of course, but not a tank top!  Still in shorts and sandals, but that won’t change for another month.  Of course, now that it is late afternoon that I am doing this, I am in a tank top and the A/C has been running.  Oh, well. 
We had eight ladies at our meeting last Wednesday night, and with Pat J still getting a by on doing an exchange card, we had seven for our theme of “Ladies Wear.”  Also,six ladies participated in the ATC swap.  Ellie did the project for October, a darling Halloween card and she brought a great show and tell.
First up, our Ladies Wear cards.  Click on any pic for details, then back to return. Cheryl B starts us off with her fashionable “beautiful” ladies.

Ella fussy cut these lovely stylish outfits with pearls on a quilted/embossed background.
Jeannie made this lacy collage with a bra and a camisole.  She wanted to make sure I pointed out the sentiment on the front, “Where is the booby fairy when you need her.”
This is my card with the bra and panties made from a pattern my friend Misty found for me on Pinterest.  If I had it, I would have stamped “Thank you for your support” inside.

Pam made this power suit, including lacy edging, a sparkly necklace, and a button.
Pat R made this Halloween colored “Peekaboo” merry widow, with a little treat inside!

Eeek!  Surprise!  I love how she punched out the spiders on the white piece, drew in the webs, and added tiny eyes with a white pen.

Therese colored in these four old ladies “waiting for Mr. Right,” that laughed so hard they had “tears running down” their legs.
During the chaos of making our project and sorting out the ATC’s, I neglected to get pictures of two of them.  Luckily, I got Jeannie to make a list describing the ATC’s and who did them, so when I found I missed two, Pam texted me pics of them.  First up on the left is Cheryl B’s Life itself, gently sponged. Pam colored the Fall tree with a rake leaning on it.

These two are Ella’s fussy cut owl and Pat R’s haunted house, that I think was either a die or a Cricut image.

Here are Jeannie’s “Bee uti ful” bees/
Therese made these crazy Tim Holz birds. I don’t know if they were fussy cut or dies, but they were all cute.
Before she showed us her project, Ella shared with us her pumpkin full of “pumpkin teeth!”  Loved it!

Ella’s project really gave me a happy feeling as she liked my bendy Christmas card project from October 2013 so much, she made her Halloween card the same way.  You can see it through my archives to get the link to how I made it.  Ella die cut everything except the ghosts which we fussy cut.

This is my finished version.  While making it, I realized that Ella’s base was one whole piece of cardstock.  Mine had panels that were attached.  Ella must have had some really big cardstock, as opened up the card is more than 12” wide.  Hers was a lot easier to assemble.

Finally, it was my birthday on the 14th and I got some nice cards from Jeannie . . .

Yes, cooler weather finally, in Florida. I have been trying to send our nice cool fronts your way, for a while now :-)
Truly enjoyed your different views, on women, this month. Loved the feminine dress with pearls, and the darling designs with a touch of under garments. :-) Ella's pumpkin teeth basket was also very cute. I would have loved to have been able to make her bendy card too. The trees and ghosts, and the haunted house could not have been any cuter.
Lovely bday cards too, ladies. Happy birthday, Kathy, and thanks for posting all the works of art for our enjoyment.
Hugs from Misty in Misery
