Our Wednesday Group Creations

Well, this may be my last time to meet with these wonderfully talented friends to make cards; share ideas, and enjoy some very good food. In two weeks school will start and I will be back to work!!! Boo Hoo!!! Although I am looking forward to going back to work, I truly will miss these Wednesdays. So, here are 3 cards that we did. We actually did 4 but with Marie "s (and I apologize) I tried to tweak her card to make it my own and totally flubbed it. I will just go back and do it her way and will post it then.

This first card is Lois's. She found the pattern from an old Papercrafts magazine and adapted it to make it her own. The front flap is a rectangle that opens. Love that "piece of cheese" charm on the inside. Colors used were More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Summer Sun - cuttlebugged with Swiss Dot and edged with MM. Not sure about the font or where the charm came from.
SU hardware is on the front.

This next card is also Lois's and is just so feminine and baby girlish. I just love her color combos.The base of the card is SU's new pink in-color, cuttlebugged with Filagree. The dotted is Whisper White using a swiss dot background stamp. The next layer (green print) and the printed rectangles were just paper she had "laying around" (Imagine that LOL!). Regal Rose is the scalloped square - swiss dotted with CB and the green is green galore - CB swirl. The heart may be nestabilities but not sure. Ribbon is from Michaels and the flower brads again were just "lying around" I am going to put the following saying inside that I found online somewhere. The site that had it said that they changed the words a bit, and I again changed them to make this my own words. It is for a very wonderful friend having her first baby - a girl. (Love to you Natalie and Carlos)

I do not have a face to see
Or put inside a frame
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss
Nor, do I have a name.
You cannot hold my tiny hands
Nor whisper in my ear,
It's still too soon to count my toes
Or cuddle me so near.

But come this December
When my birth date is due
I will be your brand new daughter
And can't wait to meet you two.

All I ask before my birth
Is your love for me to grow
I promise I'll be worth the wait
More than you will know.

So as you're waiting patiently,
To see the real live "Me"
Please know that I'm impatient too
To make this family "three".

Now on to Carolyn's card. Her card uses Mellow Moss (when was the last time you looked at that color LOL!) and Groovy Guava and Ruby Red. Love this color combo. The red flowers are embossed white. She embossed the leaves also on her card. Filigree CB on the MM.

Just Some More Cards

Just thought I would post my latest cards that I have worked on. Now, there are a couple that I saw on SC and tweaked to my own liking, but I apologize that I can't remember who to thank for their design. So, if it is you, thank you for your inspiration. Here are my cards without any fanfare. If you want to know specifics please let me know and I will tell you what stamps; papers; and/or embellishments were used. Thanks for looking.
