  We had our stamp camp shoe box swap yesterday and here I am blogging already!  Don't faint.  We each designed a card and provided everything in packs so we could each make that person's designs.  I messed up and didn't take pics of each sample and make a list of who did what, but I made them all and with a little help from Pat J, I got them all credited to the right person.  The pictures below are mostly final products done by me.
  Cheryl B designed this prettily embossed card, sponged with pink, glittered up just a bit, with the flower colored and fussy cut before adhering.  Final touch is a net cover to soften the whole thing.  I haven't decided what sentiment to put on it, so I haven't trimmed the net.  I haven't put on the little red jewels, yet.

  These pretty tulips were designed by Cheryl M-B.  I water colored it this morning. 

Here's my gold die cut rose, glued down and water colored. 

(Now, it's stuck on centering.)
This tree and boat was designed by Pam, a great guy card for any occasion.

 This cute tic tac toe card was designed by Pat J, also a multi-purpose card good for guys or girls. Everything was die cut or punched with lots of choices:  circles, crosses, stars or hearts.

   This prettily embossed and layered card was designed by Pat R.  All we had to do was assemble it!

  Therese designed this cute coffee card.  She even crimped a piece of CS to use as the sleeve on the cup and gave us a little piece of straw.

This is Jeannie's bright gift card holder with a circus theme.

Busy, busy ladies.

  Cheryl B and Jeannie creating right along.

Here's five of us in the kitchen, Pat R, Cheryl M-B, Pat J, Cheryl B and Therese.

Here I am with wildly curly hair from all the sweat!

    That's it for this month!  Thanks for stopping by.

Creative Images December Meeting

I've been having a lot of trouble with my blog writer and have had to fall back to my original method which is annoying and not nearly as easy.  Ergo, I won't be writing much more than just identifying pictures as to who did the cards.  The December meeting had no project as we had our Christmas party, but we did exchange cards with the theme of snow or snowflakes.  Here goes. (This will not go smaller, no matter what I tell it and when I previewed this before publishing, it is smaller!)
First is cute polar bears with lace trim by Cheryl B. (Font size changes arbitrary!)  On the right is Cheryl M-B's embossed silent night.  I refuse to refer to her as Cheryl B-M.

Next is Ella's silver snowflake, I think embossed on foil? Next is Helen's folding card and next after it is the inside.

This is Jeannie's embossed in white snowmen.

 This next one is my layered snowflakes, some punched, some die cut.  On the right is Therese's angel.

Next are pics of the goodies table.  I especially loved Cheryl M-B's little waffle pretzel thingies with Rollos inside.  I've made them a couple of times myself.  Cheryl B came late, so I don't have a pic of her veggie chips or licorice whips.

That's it for December.  May need to start my blog over from scratch, but only if I have no other option.  Thanks for stopping by.
