Card Group Creations

As I mentioned in my last post, I belong to a fun card group. We met last weekend to exchange thank-you cards. (I’m already putting some of mine to good use, thanking people for their great Christmas gifts.)

Here's the group (most of us). We're putting our creativity to work making paper crafted calendars. Thanks for the fun activity, PK!

This group is super talented. With their permission, I’m going to share some of their cards with you. Enjoy!

Group director, sassy P. Kelly, created this fluttering card. It doesn’t show in this photo, but the butterfly has delicate glittery details. Very pretty!

Jennifer was kind enough to host our little gala at her home. (Thanks, Jennifer.) This is the card she created. I love the colors she used!

Jennifer’s friend (and now my friend) Tracy is new to the group, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at her great card. Isn’t her color combination fun? And you should have seen her go when it came time to create our calendars. She's a natural.

I’ve always been a fan of Brandy’s creative style, and this card is no exception. I adore her paper flower. It even has velvet ribbon leaves. Beautiful!

Brandy’s friend (and now my friend) Sara made this bold bloom greeting. Isn’t the large flower a happy addition?

Beth’s design says thanks in many languages. She started her design on Wordle but had trouble printing it, so she re-created it in Word. She's a Word wiz, I tell ya!

Talent runs in the family. Susan (Beth's sister) created this lively number—a fun combination of animal print and bling!

Our group is made up of 11 crafty chicas. Unfortunately, three were unable to attend. I’ll have to give you a glimpse of their styles next month. Until then, I hope these awesome designs have your creative wheels turning!
Also, if you're in a crafting group of any sort, whether it's online or at a store, and whether you're making cards or quilting up a storm, I'd love to hear about it. Our group is new, and we welcome any advice for making it successful. Thanks!

I don't get to stamp/craft with any ladies in real life right now (just moved to a new city) but I am on a design team, so we get new stamps every month, so its really fun to see all the different creations we all make with the same set.
Then a group of us (different group) who love Unity stamps, take turns each week and we put out a challenge (every Wednesday) for instance this week was to make a card and finish it inside and out. Other examples of the challenges were, monochromatic, scrappy cards, using buttons on your card, one layer card, masculine get the idea lol
Probably my favorite place to go for a challenge is on they host a challenge every day, so if I'm lacking in the mojo, I get tons of inspiration.
It looks like you all had tons of fun, and you all are so creative!! So awesome.
