Hi there and welcome to MAY!!!  Thought it would never get here.  The temps have still been a bit on the cool side but at least you can open a window or two for some of this long winter stale air to get out and let some fresh air in.  I spent my Saturday with a friend and fellow carder watching you-tube videos and trying to figure out a few different cards.  First of all I showed her my file card and she loved it so we went ahead and made a more springy one.  Below is a picture of the Christmas one finally embellished and the spring one we did on Saturday.
They are so darn cute and easy and we are definitely going to show the ladies how to do these on our next gathering.  The Envelope Punch Board from WE R MEMORY KEEPERS makes these cards so quick with limited measuring.  See my previous post for more info.

We then went on to another card we saw.  Not sure who's blog we were on at the time but she called it a "  K Card".  There wasn't a video but instead a written tutorial with photos.  Well it took us 2.5 hours and alot of scrap paper and when we finally got it together, it was the most ridiculous method of making a type of flip it card that doesn't flip and the card doesn't close flat.  Into the trash that went.   We then moved on to a "Chevron" type card.  Again we find a blog with no instructions just a photo of the of the completed card.  Another couple hours and we kind of figured it out.

I'll work on getting some directions for this because it is cute, but I can see where I needed some changes.  We used a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card and I was pretty sure we should have used a bigger card base.  Plus though my scraps worked, I'd like to actually plan out the color combination.

Next we went and did a card that June brought all the supplies for.  No idea where she found the card at in the first place but that too turned out cute.  Pretty sure it's a Stampin Up card since we used everything from Stampin Up.
Can you believe it!  It took us 10 hours and we only got 3 cards done!  But boy did we get alot of talking and laughing!  It was a great way to spend a Saturday.  Till next time!
