WOW - 17 Cards Made At The June Card Party!

We had such a GREAT TIME and  we made cards for hours. We started the evening with a wonderful dinner... Taco Salad and Guacamole, followed by brownies, cookies galore (my favorite chocolate chips), and even a banana pudding! After eating we settled in the dining room and started making cards. Let me introduce the ladies... Allison is sitting on my right and then my daughter Jennifer.

This is Laura on the left and our co-hostesses; Anita and her lovely daughter Abby.

Pictured here is Anita with her niece Amy (MayMay Made It) and her assistant and friend Taylor!

And this is a cute little picture of Amy and Taylor that I just had to share with you! You don't want to know what they were talking about!

This is a great video showing our card party and what we do.... don't let my introduction bore you if you must skip the first 2 minutes but do watch the rest!

This card was designed by Amy but presented by Taylor.... it was her card to share and by the time we did this card Taylor a new card maker was a pro... I have to share this is part of a stamp set that is coming out in July or August by MayMay Made It and it is a must have so be watching Amy's blog for details so you can order your set before it sells out!

This card was designed by Abby and it is gorgeous. Soft beautiful colors and can be used for so many things.

You will recognize this as my little Hedgehog card... she is so cute!

This is one of Anita's cards and the photo below is the inside of it.... Love it!

This is my little snail card an the little beading on it make it just shimmer. Simple card a little hard to make because of the shell but so fun!

This is also a card designed by Anita and it happens to be the card that I won my prize with! Isn't is just too cute?

This is another newbie card. It is made by Allison. She and my daughter Jennifer cut it out in my scrap room while I was in Florida. I am so impressed that this is Allison's first card.

Laura designed this card and it is just beautiful, so delicate, I love it. The inside had a mat that matched the front. Laura had blossomed into a wonderful card maker with a style all her own.

This is a close up of the card Laura designed don't you love it?

This is Jennifer's card and it is so stinking cute I just love it! This is one of those cards that you must see in person as it just shimmers with the shiny paper Jen chose. Beautiful and FUN card!

You have to love the inside of this card. It is a stamp from The Stamps Of Life.

Now this is an adorable card made by Amy of MayMay Made It. It is just like a match book cover and is so cute (sorry I had a hard time on the video trying to open with one hand)! Amy stamped it with her stamps set and it is so cute that I don't want to give it away!

Here is the inside of the card. CUTE!

This is Jennifer's second card and it too just sparkled check the video out and you will see what I mean.

Anita designed this card and the colors make it so elegant I just love it!

Here is a close up of the card, look at that trim... ELEGANT!

This card was designed by Abby and is gorgeous, another one of those that you just have to see the paper to appreciate how pretty this is. Beautiful!

This is a very special card. Miss Anita made this card and hand sewed each of these flowers for each of us. AWESOME CARD! I think I have to keep this!

Here is a close up of her flowers, isn't this just awesome?

This is an Abby card and it is BEAUTIFUL! I love all the bling on it don't you?

This is my spinner card and I just love this card. It is a 5x7 and just sparkles.

Well I sure hope you enjoyed today's post and had a little fun joining us at our card party. My wish for you is that you too organize one with your friends. I know you will have a great time sharing your love for crafting with your friends.
