"Cards for Him" - Featured Card Showcase
You know we couldn't very well have "Cards for Her" (see our Featured Card Showcase from April 27th!) and not have "Cards for Him!" So this month, our card crafters put away the girlie pinks and glitzy glitters and cranked out some paper projects you could give the men in your life to let them know you're thinking of them! For some, masculine cards are difficult since the boys tend to not like too much ribbon, much sparkle and cutesy is definitely not what they want in a card, but stop by Simple Pleasures to be inspired. After all...Father's Day is just around the corner!
To get you started check out our "Cards for Him" featured card created by Kathleen M. - there's nothing girly about this card!
Kathleen used a variety of fun products on her card:
Tim Holtz dies
Vintage Photo and Antique Distress Inks
She even used adhesive backed foam! (You've got to see this card in person and find out how she creatively used foam on this card!)
Kathleen really did a great job on this card...INSIDE and out! (Hint: there's an old jalopy in this card...)
I know some of you are organized and already working on the next month's cards. For those of us that take things a little slower, here's a reminder of some upcoming themes:
July: "Christmas in July"
August: "Thinking of You"
September: "Fall Fun"
Jump in any time, when you can! No sign ups, no obligation! Just remember to drop your cards off by the close of business on the 3rd Saturday of the month to participate! (You can always drop them off early, if it's more convenient for you! Just let us know what month they are for when you drop them off.) If you need a copy of the guidelines, stop by the store and pick them up! (The basic guidelines ensure that everyone gives and receives good quality cards!)
June's theme "Making a Splash" should be a fun one! I'm sure we are all looking forward to warmer weather, long days and fun in the sun! Need a little help? How about using bright colors, fun fibers and big embellishments; thoughts of water, golf and sunshine, relaxation...
Don't forget: if you want to participate in our June Card Club Exchange your 10 (of the same design) cards are due no later than Saturday, June 18, before 6pm.
**For those of you who have participated in one of our Card Club Exchanges or are participating in our current exchange "Making a Splash" we invite you to join us for our Card Club Social on Wednesday, June 22 from 6 - 8pm. This will be a fun evening where everyone can meet their new card-crafting frineds .... light refreshments will be provided. Feel free to bring a finger food favorite to share, too!
We are still collecting cards and card making supplies for those in the Tuscaloosa, AL area. Feel free to make a few extra cards (please include envies) or bring some in from your stash!
