Catch Up Day

It seems the Inky Fingers have unfinished projects (who knew?) so the third Sunday of the month is our catch up day.  Christine, Monique, Dawn and I had a nice day of crafting, appetizers and white Sangria.  Amazingly enough we did get things done.  Dawn and Monique did prep work for their Christmas cards and Christine and I made a couple of cards.  I had the man in the rain stamp with me and this is the card Christine made using the Magenta Honeycomb Paper.

Christine made this card from a sample in Angela's Close to My Heart blog.  It uses  8 1/2 x11 card stock cut in half across the 11"  then folder in 1/2 and the front folded in half get the picture.

Inside the flower pattern flap opens, the popped circle keeps it secured when closed.

I have plenty of unfinished projects but chose to start a tag book for all the present and future t-ball and soccer pictures of my grandson Beckett.

This card is made with Stampin' Up paper and stamp set Fabulous Florets.

Close to my Heart stamp set Find Your Style and Graphic 45 decorative paper.

Basically the same card with different colors and papers.  I need to get back to embossing these would look so much richer if they were embossed.

  After a beautiful sun filled day the clouds have moved in and I can hear the rumbling of thunder.  Stormy weather brought me to the craft room and my, until today, unused stamp of the man with an umbrella.  I tried different backgrounds before hitting on music, it gives the cards a nostalgic look.
