Half of the CalGals met at my house last night for the last time in 2009. It was too bad that Shannon, Dianne and Allison were unable to make it, but Merlie, Tracy and I had fun. We spent the first hour and a half just chatting, and then it got quiet in my craft cave when we all started crafting. Tracy had a challenge sketch for us to try which I will show you once I can take a photo (the window I take photos near isn't bright enough yet).
Instead I will share a card I made on Thursday for the Tuesday Morning Sketch for this week.
*Cardstock: PaperTreyInk White; Stampin' Up! Garden Green, Riding Hood Red
*Patterned Paper: American Crafts
*Images: PaperTreyInk Signature Christmas; Great Impressions
*Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; VersaFine Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! Markers
*Embellishments: Kaiser Pearls
The hardest part of this card was finding a circle to use to shape the patterned paper piece. I ended up in my kitchen with tins and bowls and plates until I found one that would work.
We're off in a bit to listen to Alex (and a bunch of other kids) play in a Christmas piano recital. I think Alex should have practiced a little more as he's still stumbling over a few spots in "You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch", but as long as he's happy with what he's doing, we're happy. I like this proud mom moments!
Enjoy your Saturday!
