May Girl's Night

This month girl's night was at Mrs. Bowman's house.  She made the most delicious crab and spinach quiche and Aunt Kak's broccoli salad was awesome.  They sure know how to feed a starving pregnant lady.  :-)

Mrs. Bowman kicked off the evening with this adorable little bag of notecards with envelopes (I think the envelopes and bag are from the Bags, Tags and Boxes cartridge).  She used PP for the envelopes and we assembled them with the design on the inside for a little surprise.  The cards are stenciled using punches.  What an awesome idea!

I did my projects next.  Our challenge for the month was to use ugly ribbon (although I think I was the only one to use REALLY ugly ribbon).  I had a horrible time using this ghastly rainbow ribbon so I made a few cards trying to get one I might actually give away!  Stamped images are Hanna Stamps.  The inside of the Rain card says "to see the rainbow"
I also brought a baby card, so I might have something I was proud to share.  I was obviously thinking pink thoughts!

Aunt Kathy brought an adorable Birthday card that was simple to assemble, yet cheerful and bright.  The circles are just layered circles of different sizes.  (Not quite ugly ribbon, in fact I think it's quite cute.)

And to finish out the night, Anita shared an elegant, yet rustic Father's Day card.  Love the kraft cardstock for this!

One last card which was inspired by my Aunt Kak, who has shared so much of her design expertise with me. Last month Mrs Bowman gave us this House Mouse stamp and challenged us to use it in a card.  Here's mine.  The inside says, "All I know, I learned from you."

Hope you enjoy this month's creations!
