Hi all! I'm excited for our meeting tonight as we are going to learn about "scrap-crafting" our cards! Not only are we creating the card front, we will finish the inside as well for some added punch. So, let's not worry about the weather...come and play, create and learn!
On another note, Cindy has emailed me the following: WOULD YOU CONSIDER SENDING AN E-MAIL TO OUR CLUB MEMBERS ASKING IF THEY WOULD LIKE TO BRING AN EXTRA CARD TO CLUB THAT I COULD PUT IN A BASKET FOR A RAFFLE TO BENEFIT THE MOTHER WHO JUST LOST HER 19 YR OLD SON LAST WEEK IN A CAR ACCIDENT. THEY ARE HAVING A BENEFIT FOR THE FUNERAL EXPENSES THIS SUNDAY AND I HAVE BEEN ASKED TO BRING A BASKET TO RAFFLE OFF. HE WAS MY BROTHER'S NEPHEW AND A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF MY 3 BOYS.
So, I'd like to help our fellow member and bring her an extra card. We can always donate our Everson cards that we collect tonight to this basket.
Oh and the card image you see here is one that we will be making tonight. Remember last month, I said we'd make another 3d flower? Well, you don't want to miss this easy-peasy dimensional embellishment!

Yes, it's true! I created a layout (or LO for cardmakers!). Even though this began as a card, it quickly got too big and ended up approximately 7x8 finished. I will be framing and giving it to my sister for its inspirational message. The point here is that quite by accident, I stretched out of my comfortable box of cardmaker, mini book and altered projects lover.
The "assignment" of this project began as a Webster's Pages Inspire Me challenge to print a photo onto patterned paper, which intrigued me. From there, with my love of Webster's Pages papers guiding me, creating ruffles with the gorgeous new ribbon from the Shoppe, and my vintage touches, this project came together nicely much to my surprise!
So here's your inspirational message: Do what you love, love what you do!
