One more chance!

I'm cutting paper for "The Colors of WILD" tomorrow - there is still a chance to make this book, if I hear from you on Tuesday!!  Fee is $15  with basic photo set (you can add your own photos) or $18 with my digital photo pages!  (I spent an extra 3 - 4 hours on the pages for the $18 book! - I'm really happy with the outcome!) 

Last month of Spring Card Club

May is our last month for Spring Card Club - we're back to birthday cards!  Beckie and Karen have earned a free class in May, but they don't want to be here alone ... join us to make 5 cards for $10 on Wednesday, May 26 at 6:00 p.m.  RSVP by Monday May 24 at noon to make sure I have time to build your kit!

Here are the cards I designed for May's class - hope you enjoy them!

Background is Cuttlebug embossing folder, direct to paper inking.  Stamp is from Purchase with Purchase set called all smiles (RETIRING on June 24!)  Embellishment behind the stamped image is a neat trick I learned from Paula Kay (thanks) this month!

Stamp is "sweet thing" (April 2009 LE) and "English Everyday Cuties" (happy birthday!) Paper is Lilly Anna.  This one may surprise you when you see it in person!

Stamp set "friendship strips" RETIRING on June 24, and birthday word search (happy birthday) May 2010 LE ($7.95 with $30 qualifying purchase in May or June).  I love my MS border punches - but you know that, right?
Stamp - hello for all seasons (Serendipity 10 Level B hostess set) Pop Rockz paper and the same "happy birthday" from birthday word search!

It's hard to see but this card focal piece started with a Scorbug diamond grid!  The present is from "hello for all seasons" (Level B hostess set in Serendipity 2010.  There is a frame of Cha Cha paper behind the grid.  I used Prismacolor pencils to color-coordinate the presents to Cha Cha!

"The Color of WILD" book - wildflower season 2010

NEW NOTES:  The book is complete! 

Mike and poki have been out almost EVERYDAY taking pictures - poki will be creating digital paper with her photos for her "The Colors of WILD!" book.  We're going to use Zutter Coverall to make the book look like a typical scrapbook - you won't see the o-wires!  I've ordered 6 of them - so 6 is the maximum number of participants in the class!  Be sure to RSVP for this Wednesday, May 19 class as soon as you can.  Two spots are already taken:

1.  Karen
2.  Beckie
3.  Arlene
4.  Barbara
5.  ______
6.  ______

Fee for the class is $15.  Each page in the book is actually a pocket, so you will have plenty of space to store your beautiful photos in this book. 

The book base will be done in advance.  During class we will add the background paper - poki used her photos to create a digital paper! - and stamping, coloring and mounting  6 wildflowers (bluebonnet, Indian paintbrush, poppy, spiderwort, Indian blanket, and Engelmann daisy) 

Here is the cover photo for the book:
