Getting Ready For Easter

The Art Gallery Cards Stampers enjoyed a Monday afternoon meeting on March 26 to create a cute (really cute) Easter Bunny card and a floral, embossed, pastel Easter card.  We made (of course) matching envelopes.  The bunny tail is created from a coffee filter that we first rolled with a Stampin' Around Roller and Regal Rose ink.  


This coming week we'll reprise our "lovebird" card.  Look for pix next week!  Happy Stampin'!!
Here are our creative stampers.  From left:  Lois, Judy  F., Doreen, Lavinia, Helen, and Judy G.

Cute and fluffy bunny tails!


Sweet and Pretty

It's been nearly a year since I've posted........

AND our Art Gallery of Viera classes, at one point fading and dwindling, have become fun and robust!  (I credit my good luck charm, Helen Wheatley, a fabulous artist and one of the Gallery founders, for turning it all around for us when she began attending classes late last summer!)

It's only right that these wonderful ladies get some positive press!  They are fun, creative, helpful to each other and share my love of card-making!

Here are some of our recent projects:

Beautiful embossed edges and heat embossing and our shaving cream background.
Doreen's daughter's wedding shower invitations.  We made 40 of them in about 3 hours.  (Lots of fun too!)

Our delish chocolate bunny and a monochromatic birthday card.

Here we are at last week's class where we created a batik pattern using bleach  and a very fun April Fool's Day card!
