Shoebox Cards at CNY gathering in August

This post and the following three posts contain pictures of cards done at the shoebox exchange at the CNY Gathering in August. I love each and every one... it was such a great time. And one can never stamp too much.

Shoebox card from GrammaSandyCandy... I love this stamp set. So I will probably be making more of these

This is Kirstins shoebox card. I love the dill. You cant see it very well but the tips of the dill have been dotted with gel pen. As always Kirstin did a fabulous job.

This is Jenns card. I love the butterfly and the glitter on the flowers. And I specially love the little lady bugs on it...

Linda's card. I like the colors and the script background stamp. I very nice thank you card indeed.

Anna's shoebox card... I really like the geometric design. i added the stickles to it.

This is a card by Nancy... I like the embossing we did on the little green layer.. THis was a fun card to do. I also like the large eyelets we used itn the center of the flowers.

This is the card designed by Gayla. I love how we masked the trees and stippled the sky and the grass. I did add some glitter paint to the trees. You cant see it very well tho.

I got a tattoo.... yes a real tattoo.

Ok... I have finnally done it.... I went and got a tattoo on my right ankle last Wednesday... Some people didn't actually think I would do it. I have been thinking about getting a tattoo for many years. So I finnally decided just to go do it.... DH gave me money for anniversary present and said go ahead and get it done... so here is the picture of the tattoo on my right ankle...Actually is it between my ankle and mid calf. Just above a scar I have from breaking my ankle 27 years ago.

Central NY Gathering, Dolgeville NY August 18 2007

In the three posts below are pictures of the Gathering we had in Dolgeville NY August 18, 2007. It was a grand time. Altho the coffee shop wasn't open when we wanted to go for a coffee break. Oh well... I guess we survived. There were at least 10 People attending. And enough food to feed an army. But it was all so very delicious. Way to Go Kirstin!!! Great job organizing this Gathering....

Aunt Signe taking a nephew break. Isn't he soooo cute... He did so well, didn't hardly hear a peep out of him.... Of course with so many people doteing on him he didn't have time to get fussy.

Thinking.... Hmmm... How does this go together... Ididn't know you could make it do that!!!!

This is my setup for the shoe box Swap at the Dolgeville Gathering. I used the Delight in Life stamp set. Vintage Violet and natural card stock. Vintage Violet ink. Fine Multicolored Glitter, glue pen and pop dots (that I had to borrow cause I left mine at home in Virginia)

Anna and GrammaSandyCandy hard at work doing shoebox cards...

Jenn taking a much needed snack break... They were yummy.

Everyone hard a work at the Dolgeville NY August Stamp Gathering... Oh the fun we had...
