Thanks for playing! The theme was apparently flowers! :o) Here is the end result of everyone's artistic side! I was going to stamp inside but thought against it in the very end. This will make an awesome note card!
Watch for Round Robin Round 2 coming up! The theme will be "thanks"giving. I hope you will be eager to participate!
Hugs to all,

I have a workshop tomorrow so later tonight I will try to post the cards we are doing. Diane loves to scrapbook but the older women that come do not so we are making 3 cards instead. These women do like the Simply Scrappin' kits though for easy and quick cards so I am going to make sure I take some samples with me of the newer kits that I do own! I have started making a few cards with the Winter Bright kit.
Well, time to go...have fun...post away here and good luck! :o)

- Lightly spray glossy card stock with water. Drop on a few drops of different reinkers. I used Purely Pomegranate, Only Orange, River Rock and Barely Banana.)
- Using another piece of glossy cardstock, spray with water and smash it down onto the first piece. Continue to do this with three to five sheets. Each sheet with come out with a different look and each lighter than the first.
This challenge was to make a 2-4-6-8 box. I used Only Orange, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White cardstock, Wild Wasabi double-stitched ribbon and silver brads for the handles, the sentiment (stamped in Wild Wasabi) & pumpkin (stamped in Only Orange) came from Dotted Autumn set. I wheeled the Autumn Dots in Chocolate Chip.
This challenge was to share your love with someone! I made this card for my DH - our 9th anniversary will be January 1, 2008. :) I used Night of Navy (5 1/4 x 4) and Whisper White cardstock ( 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, 5 x 3 3/4, scraps); Night of Navy, Real Red and Blue Staz-On inks; Bashful Blue brads and white vellum. The stamp sets used were So Very, All About U, Big Deal Alphabets and Seaside Sketches.
More to come!
The first is for Brenda who is recovering from double mastectomy and preparing for chemo. I started with River Rock ( 8 1/2 x 5 1/2). I used a piece left over from the Ink, Spray & Smash technique which I will be posting later ( 5 1/4 x 4), layered with Rose Red Petals DS paper (5 1/4 x 2). I cut a piece of Purely Pomegranate, River Rock and Whisper White. USing the corner rounder I rounded the corners of all three layers. I used Purely Pomegranate and River Rock with Best Blossoms stamp set, stamping repeatedly before reinking. Layering them together, I used a 1/16" punch to punch through, poked a silver brad through the Wild Wasabi double-stitched ribbon. Using Basic Black and Sincere Salutations stamp set I stamped the sentiment "Thinking of You".
The second card is for a little 6 year old girl, Julianna, who was diagnosed with brain cancer. Her story touched my heart as my grandchildren are 7. 6 and 4. You never think of how well off you really are until you read a story like hers! So I wanted something to remind her of happiness! I started with Pink Passion (8 1/2 x 5 1/2). I layered with Whisper White (5 1/4 x 4), Wild Wasabi (5 x 3 3/4), Pink Passion ( 4 3/4 x 3 1/2) and Whisper White (4 5/8 x 3 3/8). I used Pink Passion, Wild Wasabi and Garden Whimsy stamp set for the card front. I thought this would brighten anyone's day!
MORE TO COME!

Here we were to make a Money Envelope. I started with a standard envelope, sealed of course! I rolled Autumn Dots on with Chocolate Chip ink. Then I cut 2" (I think) from one end. Taking the other piece I rolled it through a paper crimper. I added Mustard grosgrain ribbon around the top. Using the two tag punches from SU! I punched the larger tag from CC and the smaller tag from Whisper White. I stamped "sew sweet" from Tags So much in Chocolate Chip, colored the flower in using Stampin' Write markers, punched a 1/16" hole in the top and pushed a silver brad through mustard grosgrain ribbon to top it off.
Last but not least for this post is my DIRT PILE card! LOL I started with Creamy Caramel (8 1/2 x 5 1/2). I did Direct To Paper (DTP) technique with Really Rust ink along the edges. I used a piece of the new Apple Cider Designer Series paper (5 1/4 x 4) for the next layer. I crumped it up, then again did DTP with Really Rust. Then I placed on a 2 x 5 1/4 piece of Really Rust in the middle after once again doing DTP. The focal point is a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 piece of River Rock with DTP Really Rust. I then cut around one of the decors on the same sheet of Apple Cider DS, sponged the edges and layered.

***AS SOON AS POSSIBLE...I WILL GET THE PIC UPLOADED! At that time I will also post the pics of the Winter Bright Scrapbook we completed. Oh...and maybe pics of my new filing cabinet! I have the stamp room about 1/2 done now and have filled the top two drawers of the lateral file cabinet - the top with business supplies and the second with all my 8 1/2 x 11 paper! And still have a little room left there for my In Color papers too. :o)
