My Very First CROP!!

I absolutely had a blast at my very first crop ever!! I went with some really good friends, Gina, Debbie and Jan. Let me just say...I will definitely be going to more crops in the future! Sure, it was hard to decide what I wanted to take with me, that's why I took everything that could fit in my big SU! tote, my Big Shot doctor bag, my tool tote and another SU! bag! Let me tell you, I took a ton of stuff but I am so glad I did. I actually had no idea what I was going to work on when I got there but that's ok. I mounted some stamps, made 3 cards and had a great time hanging out with these wonderful ladies all day! I didn't want it to end. Here are some pics of us girls and the 3 cards I made.
Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for your week!

Here's Gina working on some cards for a swap she's in.
Here's Deb working on her kids scrapbooks. Micky Mouse for her son Kyle and Tinker Bell for her daughter Megan.Here we all are! I didn't get a close up of Jan for some reason but she's the cute one on the bottom left. She was working on a scrapbook for a good friend using all really old pics. It was neat so see the way they dressed back then.Here's the first card I made. I used Almost Amethyst and Pretty in Pink cardstock with the new Tea Party Designer Series Paper. (isn't that paper just gorgeous??!!??) The frame is from the SU! stamp set called Gallery and the "thanks" is from the Thank You Kindly stamp set. That beautiful ribbon is from our new Ribbon Originals called Dress Up and the brads are our Earth Elements collection.This card uses our new, incredible, CIRCLE CUTTER!!! WOO HOO!! That circle cutter is just fabulous! The cardstock is Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Certainly Celery. The DSP is again Tea Party. The ribbon is our 5/8" grosgrain in Regal Rose. The stamp is one of our new single stamps called Elegant Thank You and was punched out with the Scallop Square and then punched with our 1/16" circle punch. The scallop around the 1/2 circle was created using our new Eyelet Border punch as well as the corners of the So Saffron layer. The flower is punched out with our new Embosslet called Cherry Blossom and has a new Flower brad in the middle. Finally the ink is our Classic Rose Red Pad and a Versamark pad for the background on the So Saffron.Here's my final card. The cardstock is Summer Sun and Chocolate Chip. The DSP background is from the cutest collection called Good Morning Sunshine. The stamp set is our new set Just Buzzin' By. I paper pieced the bee hive also using the Good Morning Sunshine. The ribbon is our 5/8" grosgrain in Chocolate Chip and attached by punching 2 Horizontal Slits and threading it through. The little flower is one of our Flower brads in Chocolate Chip and the ink is Basic Black. Thanks again for coming by to see me. Have a wonderful day!
