We had club last night and I want to share the cards.



We had Club last night we had for our challenge to make something using only black and white. This is not my favorite thing because I love colors so much but ok. This is what I made, it is called THE BOX and I’m going to show you how to make this BOX.  I want to share with you what the other girls made, all their cards turned out beautiful and I’m going to try and keep this short.


This one here Chris made. The paper was just beautiful.Lee

This one is Lee’s card. She always teasing me because she calls this a Pat’s card. I love to embellish my cards and Lee said she had a Pat moment. I just love her, we have so much fun. She did a beautiful job.. She is also my best fan….


Here is Kathy card. I do have to tell you she stamped her card with celery ends. Turned out wonderful. Kathy is very creative.


Here is Jo’s card. Wonderful job, I love it. Jo is very new at stamping and she does a fantastic job.


Here is another one Chris did.. We go to Chris’s house once every month. She has a craft room in her basement to die for. You could live in it. She has everything you need. We all bring food and we are their for the entire day and most of the evening.

After we make our cards we always have some kind of project to do each one of us takes our turn. It was Kathy turn this month so this is what we learned how to do. I’m not going to get into how to do them but if you are interested I can do an How to in another post just let me know, because if your are not then I will not do them.


These are so easy to make and where a lot of fun to do.


Most of the girls are a lot faster them I am because I am too fussy and I drive them crazy.


They got done a lot more them I did but that is fine. Now on the top you can see I used some of them on my box, they sure look pretty and if you make them smaller you can put them on cards. So we had a really good time together, we always do.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful week. Now I’m going to show you How to make the BOX.

Hugs, Patricia
