Card Sketch Cards - Challenge #3

Here are the great cards that were shared with me in response to the Card Sketch Challenge #3.

Here is the Card Sketch:
 Sandi Schumacher chose Turquoise as her card base and layers.
 This is my take on the Card Sketch using the Cool Treats stamp set.
Deb Vine created this great card for the Card Sketch, notice how the Designer Paper even matches the card theme! Deb's stamp set of choice is the new stamp set Heartland.
 Judy Vine, Celebrate your Big Day with Cake card is a sure hit!
 Janet Forton created this lovely Sympathy Card using the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.
 Bernie Seidl turned to the popular Colorful Seasons stamp set for her card.
Thank you so much for participating, watch for the next challenge that will be posted this Friday!

July Kit Class Cards

Last Tuesday was our Kit Class, a great bunch of ladies met and made 15 cards a piece!!  I love doing these stamping classes, whether it is the Kit Class or the Technique Class; I always learn something along the way that I can use in the classes or I learn a better way. I look forward the friendships that have been created and the cards that are shared. 

Here are the cards from the July Kit Class:

Paper:  Rich Razzelberry Base, Tempting Turquoise Layer, Whisper White

Accessories:  Stitched Square Framelit, Dimensions, Dollie, Aqua Painter, Pom Pom

Shimmery Water Technique
Come join us in making two Technique Cards and a Fancy Fold Card. We will be making 3 beautiful cards.

Apple Valley Bar &Grill

All you need to remember is your adhesive and scissors. 
Class size is limited to the first 10 ladies to sign up!

Feel free to invite a friend, we always enjoy meeting new people and sharing what we love!! But please remember, the techniques may be over whelming and we want everyone to have a good time. I don’t always the time for one on one teaching.
Thank you for Understanding.

Happy Stamping!!
Cindy
