Fun with Friends

I got a call from my friend Linda the other night inviting Kip and I to eat dinner with her and her husband. She also asked me to bring some stamping stuff over. Linda recently had surgery and told me that secretly she decided that since she was having to have the surgery at least she could look forward to a homemade card from me and one from our friend Elaine. She got one from both of us and one from our church crafting group, so she was happy. She is doing great from the surgery wanted some crafting time! We all know that is the cure for all that ails you. She also said that her husband was interested in learning to make cards, especially after he found out that Kip has been known to make a few cards too. This was the card that I made using a Sizzix embossing stencil. Linda has several embossing stencils so we were looking at different ways to use them. I was showing her how to color them in using pastels. I just have a short stubby brush that I pick up the color with and then color in the area I want. The DP is DCWV from the Fall pack and card stock is from CTMH. The felt flower and button are from Making Memories.

This is the card that Kip made. The ice cream sundae is from a Fiskars set and the sentiment is from CTMH. He colored everything with Prismacolor pencils. I am not sure about the papers here, he was using paper from Linda's stash. After his image was colored, he went over the ice cream with the glitter Gelly Roll pen. I think he does a great job on his cards.
We had a great time with Linda and Charles, and made several cards that night. On Friday, Linda and Charles dropped off this card, because they had made several more that day!

Can you believe it is already November? I have got to get busy making Christmas gifts. At least I have a good start on our cards this year. Have a great rest of the weekend.
