Three More Weekend Cards

These are the other three cards from a stamping party I hosted on Sunday. It was another intro to card-making for my non-stamping girlfriends. I posted the Mother's Day card I had them make the other day. They loved playing with all the paper punches, stamps, and inks. They laughed when I pulled out my Crop-A-Dile to set the snaps for the Father's Day card! They couldn't imagine that we use such a large tool for paper crafting.

Wow, I don't know where you have the time to HOST a stampin' day for your non-stampin' friends. It must be fun to share your passion and knowledge with them. They must have so much fun. You did a good job of making the cards simple enough that they would enjoy the process, but beautiful at the same time. It's funny, I too, thought the CAD was the most monstrous and hideous thing! I almost refused to buy it, but you know, the peer pressure kicked in. "Everybody's got one! Come on Jenn try it. Just try it once" I know it sounds crazy, but us crafters ARE crazy right!? Anyway, the first card is my favorite. It's darling! Did you lure anyone into your cave? Into your addictive vice? Heehee. It sounds like they had a blast. Okay, Mahalo for sharing! PS, it was such a nice surprise to see more posts!
