Card Day Club- Valentines and Babies!

The *CDC gathered this month at Hanna's house for a day of making Valentines - and what goes best with Valentines? Well babies are sure to follow right? :D So we made Valentines and Baby cards. Here are the goodies!!

Jan's Mon Amie card with Cricut cut flowers - very very fun and springy indeed. :) Jan's mom made a donation of the card bases and cute cute matching envelopes! Thank you, Jan's mom!!!

Deb came up with this super cute Valentine with loads of ribbon and hearts that are 3-D - we popped up each layer with lots of dimensional glue. I got a little carried away with the white ribbon. I like to call my version, "bondage."

Steph's cute Valentine with a Cricut cut heart - I am thinking that the card base was embossed using a Cuttlebug. And she chalked it - very awesome Stephanie!!

Steph also made these amazingly cute baby cards - each one was different but this one was my favorite. :)

Deb also came up with these adorable tag cards. The embossed paper in the background came from JoAnne's and the letters were cut using Storybook. Too cute and none were exactly the same as we were allowed to chose our backgrounds, tags and letters from oodles of different pastel colors.

Hanna gave us a tutorial on making these cute "Sweet one" stamped images using layers from a Stampin' Up set. She also brought the cutest little onesie papers and card bases too. Love this one!!!

Leave it to Hanna for also introducing us to her other passion - beading - she shared her beading wire with us and made these adorable wire hearts. She also had these super cute mini punch tags and tiny heart and key punches for making the dangly tags to hang from the wire heart! The card base has embossed edges and foil - the sentiment is printed and mounted on glitter cardstock - this card has everything! I love those teeny punch tags!!!

A confession - I did not make a Valentine this month - after all of the Valentining I did for other projects - I just didn't have the heart for it. Heh... but I did bring along kits for this baby card which is mostly made with Cricut cut circles and flowers and a little flourish embelishment from the Storybook cartridge.

After enjoying some of Hanna's awesome Taco soup we adjourned our meeting of the CDC for Febuary - next meeting will be held March 8th at my house. Our theme will be St. Patty's, spring, and Easter cards. Thank you ladies for another awesome day!!!

*The Card Day Club meets once a month to trade and swap completed cards and card kits - it is a day of crafting and food and fun and food and friendship, laughter and food. :D If you are a local and would like to join us for a meeting of the CDC in person or remotely, please contact me!!! :)
