Yesterday my local Stamping Group had our monthly meeting... I missed last month's - they have changed the times.... now it's from 10.00am till midnight.... yeah - a real marathon session.... well I have to say I did not make it till midnight.... no - I piked out at around 8.00pm.... that was around 10 hours,.... and ten cards later....so I was happy if somewhat tired.... It was such a fun day... we started with around 10 of us... and slowly as the day progressed we got less and less... three were still there when I left and I'm sure at least two of them would have stayed.... We had the most awesome shared lunch and then picked at the left overs all afternoon and evening. We shared ideas, had a demo on making shadow-box cards, and generally had an awesome time.
I had to make a card for my hubby's birthday and after a bit of a funny start... took the unmounted stamp off it's backing sheet, and then for ages couldn't find it on my workspace... Sue looked all round, Pam looked all round and no-one could see it... then about an hour or so later, I looked down and it was on my leg..... fallen off where it had stuck to the steel rim under the table.... how it got there - well I'll never know... but finally got the card finished. I'll post it next week after his birthday.... then it was onto Christmas cards....
I got the Hero Arts Starry Night cling - arrived on Thursday so inked it up and made an great set of cards. I was inspired by this card from Tiffany. I used my brayer to ink up the stamp with some Kaleidacolor inks and a Brilliance Multi coloured ink and then used Tomobow Mono Multi glue to highlight the snow and trees with Diamond Dust.
I was so pleased with these and I still have one each of the greens and blues to make into cards. It is such a neat stamp. I had so much fun doing them, deciding on the matting colours and what sentiment to put on the bottom.
I won't bore you with too long a post - so tomorrow will show some more of what I did.
Today we went down to Hamilton to see Mary, our SIL. It was her 60th birthday today and 16 of us went out to lunch with her. Including her mother, who is 93. Mary say's thanks to all who have kept her in their prayers. She is coming along. Still has issues with her walking and her sight, but is improving daily. I thank the Lord for her still being with us.
Thanks for stopping by,
