Here is this month's takings and a little bit of how they were made.
This is one of Jan's cards - the front is a patchwork pumpkin cut with Cuttlebug and the sentiment "Sew" and inside is "Thankful for You!" I was thankful that I didn't have to cut and piece all of those pumpkins. :D Jan did that for us! What a fun card, very fallish!!!
This is one of Hanna's "Thanks" cards - very pretty autumn colors and the ink pad that she brought to share was AMAZING - it has several different colors that separate and then slide together when you use them to give a fusion of different colors to stamp with. . . I forgot to ask where I can get my hands on one of those stamp pads. . . they are very cool! Zoom in on those stamped leaves on the envelope to see what I am talking about. They turned out so pretty!
This one is Tiffani's cards - perfect for a friend. The inside reads "While taking a moment to count my blessings I thought of you and what a blessing you are in my life!" What a neat card - card day just wouldn't be complete without a pink and brown Tiffani card. This one is actually more of a deeper reddish pink than is usual for Tiffani. . . way to go Tif, I am proud of you!!! ;)
Here is Tiffani's Halloween card made on this great black and purple glittery paper - adorable! Those bat wings were cut from an oval shape - one wing from each side of the oval. Google eyes. . . they are the best!
Stephanie made these great witchy cards with a digi stamp she found of the shoes - The background papers are embossed with Cuttlebug and Steph used her iRock tool for the little blings on the sentiment . . . so cute! I love this card!
Hanna has been holding out on us. She found these card bases at Artco and bought ALL OF THEM. :) The embossed leaf paper base is beautiful - and the inside leaf paper is vellum with a sentiment stamp "So Thankful For You." Hanna always finds these cool little touches like the leaf punches that are tied to the tag on the front. I am going to have a super hard time sending this card away. Thanks Hanna!!!
Here is another of Jan's cards. Since October is breast cancer awareness month, Jan made this card with the pink ribbons. The sad part about this card is, I think that each one of us has someone appropriate in our lives to send this card to. I wish it weren't so. Jan was inspired by her very own Mom who is going through her own struggle right now, back in Minnesota. Big hugs to Jan's Mom and to Jan for bringing this card!
Here is my card - I printed a digi image of the Grinch and was inspired by my stamp set from Close To My Heart called "Peace On Earth." The sentiments read "What if Christmas doesn't come from a store. . " (front) and "What if Christmas means a little bit more? - The Grinch" (inside)
The next meeting of the CDC is slated for Friday November 12 at Jan's house - there has been talk of having a "Mom's Day" at the CDC which means that you get to bring your Mom to card day and they get to take part in the fun. My Mom is in Tennessee, and i'm not so sure that my Mom-In-Law is the card making type, so I will be needing a Mom to borrow for the occasion. Any takers? :)
Thanks ladies for a fun day!
