Stamping Friends

Do you ever feel like the only people who 'get' your rubber stamping hobby are the friends you've made online? I certainly do! Unfortunately, I dont have any local friends who stamp. Of course that could have something to do with the fact that Im too busy to do much socializing but it would be nice to meet some IRL stampers.

So with that thought in mind, I joined a card club at my local scrapbook store. Ten ladies get together once a month to swap cards and do a card make and take. I attended my first meeting last night and had a really fun time. We did a make and take that involved acetate and glitter and I met some fun ladies with some beautiful cards.



This is the card I made for the swap. It uses the AI Post a Note set, some of our lovely May Arts ribbon and one of our sunflower charms. I have to say I was proud to make something that actually used 3 items from our store...though I didnt advertise that fact at the card club, lol. I actually designed the card around the colors in the ribbon , pairing some SU DP with some Celery and Not Quite Navy card stock. The image was colored with Copics...I just purchased some new colors I had to use...and finished off with some tiny pearlescent sticky gems. The ladies seemed to like it and I hope you do too.
