Love this month's MPP kit and it came in a pretty blue box! Such a pretty card I've got visions in my head for a larger card too! Hope to get it made asap. Hope it comes out as well as I see it in my minds eye but all details not there just yet.
Had fun for this month's Stamp Camp. Only 3 attendees, but they liked the cards and made 2 of each. They opted to not make the gift card holder. We laughed and chatted a lot. I was also helping a friend, that was an SU! demo many years ago and is moving, sell some of her SU! and non-SU! stamping supplies. They bought a good bit of it and I will take the rest to another customers stamping group monthly get-together the first week in Dec. for those that couldn't come today to look thru remainder. What doesn't sell there, I will return to her, but they already put a good dent in the stash. Anyway, here are the cards we made today. I didn't get pics of Kathy or Marilyn's cards, but will try to get one from them and share later. They were really cute with some changes from my samples. Love to see their creativity.

UPDATE: Kathleen's cards. She also decorated the insides when she got home and tooks pics of that as well. They look great!
Only had 3 attendees (Margarethe, Kathy and Carmen) this month, but we had a good time. They really liked the projects. Only one that changed anything to the house was Margarethe, she ran hers thru the brick embossing folder. I never got a chance to see how that came out and did not get a picture of it. Will get one later and update with it. I also didn't get pics of Carmen's cards as she had to leave early. Her's were just like mine though.

Welcome to VCRocks last blog hop of the year. This month we are to share our favorite colors. I love bright colors. So I will be sharing from the Brights Family and one In Color.
Luckily, this blog hop happened right when I was to go to the Sr. Ctr. on Friday to make cards and then I step those up for my Stamp Camp today. It gave me the perfect opportunity to use 2 of my newest stamp sets. The first card is the Sr. Ctr. version and the second is the stepped up version for Stamp Camp.
The first card is using new Birthday Fiesta stamp set with the coordinating Fiesta Time Framelits. Colors used are Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Real Red, Crumb Cake and In Color, Cucumber Crush.

The flower on the cactus is from the Tree Builder Punch.
The second card was made using Swirly Bird stamp set with th coordinating Swirly Scribles Thinlits. The sun was made with a sponge dauber and just burnished/rubbed on. Colors used are Pool Party (Subtles), Pacific Point, Real Red and Daffodil Delight.
Another fun get together with friends and today it was all some recently made new friends. They are Maryann's stamping group and meetup monthly to stamp down in Ruther Glen/Lake Caroline. We had a great time. I took the cards I made at the Sr. Ctr. yesterday and stepped them up for even cuter cards. Loving the bright colors and they did too! We had lot of fun!
This month I decided to get a little more involved in the cards I did with them and I pre-cut the images needed for 2 different cards. I only had to do the stamping for 2 of them. They assembled them themselves. Everyone did a great job with a couple doing a different color combo from mine.
Note: On their cards, I could not find the stamp for the blue part of boat and did not have my markers with me, so used some reg. markers they had and drew a boat on each of their cards.

Due to the Sr. Ctr.'s air conditioning breaking, the center closed the day I was to go, so I rescheduled as I wasn't going to be here for our usual date in July, so I wouldn't go until August again. I actually had everything pre-cut and stamped in advance and was ready when I got the email about the cancellation. So we rescheduled for 7/1. They really liked the cards I had this time and made more than usual. I gave them several color choices in each and they used up a lot of what I precut. I had no roses left. A couple did a little recreating. I like it when they do that and we have a couple of new ladies that are crafty, so I'm seeing more creativity again and not having to make the cards for them and they help the ones that need the assistance.
