Card Making Night - May

On Monday night this past week, I held my 3 for $6 card night. I had three new stampers who had never been before and they really enjoyed it! I think I got them addicted already! *wink*

This first card below, I posted on Monday, so it might look familiar.

For this next card, I was inspired by a card I had seen HERE. I changed up the colors and made a few of my own touches, but I just love the bright colors and the way the party hats stand out!

I just love this Father's Day that I found at Lesley's blog when I participated in a color challenge last week with the Paper Players. I switched up a few things by re-arranging the colors and adding an embossing folder, as well as adding some brads in the corners. I'm just a fan of clean and simple!

I know I tell you all the time how I love your cards but I really do. You have an eye for putting colors together :) Can you tell me how you take such great pictures of your cards. I always have such a hard time.

Your cards are beautiful, Heidi; I'm sure your class attendees LOVED this class! I am honoured that I inspired you, with the Party Hearty card - thanks for letting me know! Christine :)

Each of these cards is lovely. I particularly like that line-up of party hats on your birthday card!
