supplies found at the dollar store.  I made this wreath for only $5!  Check back next
month for the next creation.  Hope this inspires you to use your creativity and

Projects for Card Club
June was my month to host one of my clubs.  Here are the
card projects I had my guests create.

Stamps from Studio g, Hampton Arts and Stampfrancisco

Flapper Hat Card
I love making this card.  I added some extra flair with feathers!
Template from Flowers were crumpled and
then distressed with sandpaper and a jeweled brad was added.

Stamp from Ink Blocks - I pick it up at the Rubber Stamp
and Scrapbook convention.  I used Crayola watercolor pencils
and a Marvy blender pen.  Card is accented with copper brads
and edged with gold ink.

Feather stamp is from B & J's Art Stamps, fancy script
background stamp and sentiment are from inkafinkado.
I used the "brick wall" method that I saw on Splitcoaststampers.

ATC Challenge

ATC Challenge!
Hey all my blogger friends!  This is my first time purposing a challenge.  I thought it would be good to use up some of my scraps and create some ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).  I had never made them before and always wanted to.  Here's your chance to create along with me!  If you would like your creation(s) posted on my blog just send me pics of your ATCs and their titles to my email.  I will gladly put them up for all to see.  READY - SET - GO!

(ATC dimensions:  2 1/2" x 3 1/2")

(p.s. I may have a little prize for the most creative submission! Challenge expires on Wednesday, June 16.)
