(My challenge card is at the bottom of this post. If you have time, I hope you'll check out the cards I made today first.)
Wow! Do I have cards to show you!
CTMH Consultants Joyce Houck and Krista Hershberger were the hostesses of a wonderful day of card making and cropping which I attended today.
Many of the cards featured the CTMH Taste of Summer Papers and coordinating Stamps available only for the month of May.
Not only did we have a fun day of socializing and card making, but we also had some great food. After a week of digging in the dirt, it was a wonderful day. And when I got home, my DH had reduced the mound of mulch in our driveway to a small pile and the flower beds look lovely.
So, I'm guessing you'd like to see the cards I made. Most of them are tucked into an envelope, some of which are decorated, if you see papers sticking out from underneath the cards themselves.
|This is a spinner card.|
|If you tuck a $20, $1, and $5 bill next to each other in this gift card holder, you get the year 2015. Unfortunately, Joyce and Krista did not supply us with the cash, just the idea.|
|Don't these stamps remind you of the spirographs we used to play with?|
|This is a gate fold easel card, with a very messy bow. I must retie it.|
I noticed Krista walking around with a camera today. I'm sure she'll be posting some photos on her blog, too. You might even catch a glimpse of me and my pals being silly. She'd love it if you'd stop by her blog to have a look see. For some more wonderful Close to My Heart inspiration, you might like to check out the May SOTM blog hop. And Joyce's Joyful Stars blog hop goes live on the 10th of every month.
Here's a birthday card I made using some flowers recently cut with the CTMH cricut cartridge.
I previously posted a card using the negative from cutting these flowers as a stencil for my background.
