My gals night out, thank you gals :)!

Last night,our usual bunch of crafty gals got together for a gals night out over at Deborah's but instead of bringing our 
own projects to do we decided to bring a project for all of us to do together. 3 of us had to prepare a project to do, and so: Julie, Kim and Deborah did our projects this time. Next time it will be Val, myself and Louise doing a project....let me tell you the bar has been raised very HIGH...thining I should have gone first :p!  anyways, here are the projects we made: the first one is Julie's and it is a small gable box for little goodies (like those yummy Bliss chocolates).  Cute box eh??

The next project was a lot of fun too, it was done by Kim and it was a gorgeous card...LOVED it :)!  We got to use some micro glitter (must get some), I am still covered in the stuff...but that is okay I need some sparkle in my life :p!!!  We got to use the Cuttle bug tiny heart dots folder, and the heart nestabilities for her card which was fun too especially if you were just new to this cardmaking thing. 

The last project we created was Deborah's, it was pretty is a pop up calender box :)!  How cool is that?? I must say though that the elastics for this project were giving a lot of us grief, right Julie?? Lol, I will be getting the template soon for this project and will definitely be creating more of them :)!
Then these wonderful women surprised me with a pile of Bday cards, thank you so much gals, you are the BEST....HUGE hugs for you all :)!  Yep, on February3rd I turn 31 (lol, a youngin' as Deborah keeps calling me)...not too sure how I feel about that number though but there is no stopping it from occurring.  Here are all the cards that they made for me, pretty neat and gorgeous cards from pretty amazing women :)! 

Julie's card, and of course there are butterflies involved :p! Beautiful card Julie...I LOVE it :)!! LOVED your new car too (nice brakes :p!), thank you so much for driving last night...see Julie's new car has heated seats.

This next card is from Val, LOVE that owl 
stamp and of course the gorgeous paper :)!  She added chrystals to for the owl's eyes...pretty
 neat effect I must say.  Should find out where she got that wonderful paper from :D! 

Here is a fun House Mouse card made by our new addicted to card making friend Germaine :)! Wonderful card, love the House Mouse stamps....even though there is sometimes a lot
 of coloring (right yvonne??) :)!

Now I first have to 
apologize for having this card's picture sideways...but I figure you need a good neck work out today.  This card is from Yvonne, and she vows to not stamp this stamp for a long time if at all just because of the coloring job needed for it.  Anyways, I just LOVE this card too...because inside there is a packet of yummy coffee :D!  LOVE her card design too :D!  Am actually in the process of making some of this coffee, will have to find out what kind it is...

Check this card out, Deborah made it and wow the detail and the work that must have gone into this beautiful card.  Check out the hardware too :D!  See the hearts on the right side of the card, well each of them have a small button that is sewn or looks sewin. The embossing done on the card too, WOW :D!

Here is Kelly's card, very soft colors...beautiful job on this card Kelly :)! It was nice to see Kelly out and Val out last night, since we haven't seen them in a long time...

Here is Louises card, very beautiful her asian style cards she makes...I always look forward to seeing what she has created next.  It is neat to see how after you have known some of your card making friends for awhile you can spot their card a mile away.

The final card is from Kim, and what a gorgeous card she made....LOVE everything about this card especially the stamped image of the lady :).

Again, thank you so much was fun :)!
