Craft Party - Follow Up

It took a week to get the photos taken, but here's what happened last weekend when I got to meet a group of talented ladies (and absorb lots and lots of knowledge to boot!).  Check out Carol's blog here and here for some great pictures and lots of details! 

During my time there I managed to finish three CAS cards as well (it helped that my one colored image was already half done before the day began!). 

My first card was inspired by Sandy's card and is perfect for those of us who have more to say than will fit in a standard A2 sized card, but not enough for a full 5x7 one!  LOL  Plus it's great for that 12x12 cardstock that I've got with minimal scraps left behind!

Next is my Sarah Kay image with some design paper from Carol's scrap stash gathered at a smaller get-together way back in the fall of last year!  I had a blast pawing through her box, and found the fabulous bright yellow flower paper.

Finally - I must have been channeling a little Tim Holtz as I used my Distress Ink pad and TPC Studio stamps to create this collage.  I also tried out some rub-ons for the first time.  They took a little getting use to, but I was thrilled that I didn't destroy my card in the process of experimenting!  I think I'm also going to love all the papers in the DCWV Old World Stack.

Thanks for the great afternoon ladies!

Hi Kathy! It's so good to see you creating cards and blogging again! I love the first one! Those colors and DP look awesome, and what a great sentiment! I can't believe you remember that piece of yellow DP coming from me, but it sure is good to see it being used! I LOVE Sarah Kay and this is adorable! Nice job! See you at the next meet :)
