GS Anual Meeting- Last One

Well they had the last anual meeting of Moingoina Council last night. Makes me sort of sad to see it go. October 1 we become the Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa Council. I am sure the name will grow on me, but it hasn't yet. It was an awesome night. They awarded April the Moingoina Award she will be in the last group to ever receive it. Suzanne and me received the Appreciation Pin. I almost cried when the read letters from my troop. The girls were so sweet. It was a fun night although I am disappointed they didn't give awards to all the people we nominated from South Central Warren Service Unit, everyone was very deserving.

First Inchie

This is my first inchie card. I made it for Jennie's swap on the PCMB board. I can see that these are going to get really addictive. I used Technique Tuesday's new limited edition set for birthdays. the leaves on the front are the flames from the candle in the set. Inside is a Happy Birthday verse. The layers are flower punches I use for quilling.

Peek A Boo Card #2 for Swap

This is card #2 for Mary's swap. I think it turned out much better than #1 maybe I am getting the hang of this. Items used pink cardstock, cuttlebug embossing folder of flowers, Stampendous images for flowers and butterfly, Hero Arts for sentiment.

Toao's Peek A Boo swap

This card is for Mary's swap with her peek a boo template. It was much harder than I thought it would be to make this style of card. My first one went into the round file. But attempt 2 appears to be ok but not my favorite work. Photo two is the inside. Items used, Bazzill sparkly cardstock, image colored with prisma pencils and gamsol. Stamps are Great Impressions for the kitty images and Inkadinkdo for the sentiment. Clear glitter pen used to accent the images.

Bleach Tech from Card Club w/ The Chix

Becky taught us a new technique of stamping an image, heat embossing it then applying bleach to the card stock to bleach out areas of the stamped image. You can then color it after it dries if you wish. I left mine white in this example to bring out the design in the stamp. I love the way it turned out. The sketch I used was from and was #19 by Mary Yontz. I just love working from sketches. I also have adopted Erin's style of taking photos of my cards. I love the look of adding parts you used to create the card into the photo.
