Card Night!

A sweet friend at church decided to hostess a card night for anybody who wanted to come. Well, I'm definitely not gonna miss this activity!!! It was so fun. She put in so much work for all of us. Basically everything was ready to go. All the measuring and cutting was already done. All we had to do was assemble the cards. One card there was stamping and embossing, but the other 2 all that was required was to assemble the cards. I had so much fun. There were a lot of ladies that hadn't made cards at all before, and the set-up was so perfect for them, I thought. It was a super fun night. Here are the 2 cards, and the little project.



Since someone else did all of the prep work, I'm not really sure on any of the supplies used. I could have asked, of course, but was just having fun, and didn't feel like I needed all of the details. If you happen to see something you want info on, I am sure I could find it out. The one detail I did snag was the ink we used for all of the edging. SEI Tobacco. It was a nice color. And really easy to use. Not too inky, but not too dry; it was "just right." So, it was a really fun night....I hope she might do it again. It's so fun to get together with other ladies and make cards and chat. I haven't done that in ages, and definitely have missed it! I'm off to the bus stop, then back to blog hop in a bit!

How fun!!! Those are really cute projects! I know, I have friends who want me to put together some holiday card workshops. It's definitely a lot of work, but everybody always has so much fun : ) I'm thinking about it....

Oh what a fun thing to do! Never been to something like that and they do have them here...but with strangers...and I don't like strangers...and they don't like me - ha. Love the lil' Pop Rock holder - - great idea for a kid card! And that first card with the flowers and all that brown is so clean and rich!

What a great friend to host a fun card-making get-together. And how sweet of her to make the cards interesting enough for experienced card makers but simple enough for newbies. I especially like the first one. The colors are so warm.

Sounds fun... I love all 3 projects. There's nothing better than stamping with friends!

These are great and even more so because you didn't have to cut anything up. I used to go to card classes now and then just to stamp without thinking about the design, measurements, etc. Sounds like you had a fun time!
