I want to share some photos from the OWH Cardmaking Party on Wednesday, March 23rd during lunch time. Thanks to all who participated in including those who were with their spirit. Thanks to all who helped me prepare card kits beforehand. It was a great help and support. By now, you will know how much prep time is involved for this project apart from the card supplies.
Just for a note, the Tigger card is made with an original art by Jenna, 4th Grader (Debbie K.'s friend's daughter) and the Sunset and the Hibiscus flowers cards are made with original arts by Lanni Zhou, 2nd Grader (Yan G.'s daughter). Thanks to them for allowing me to use their wonderful arts! Kids of the troops would enjoy them for sure.
I have an OWH Cardmaking Party on Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at work during lunch time. Since the Webmaster of the Department posted this monthly event on the intranet, I have more volunteers and support from my colleagues. In order to prepare the party on Wednesday, I am going to meet with some of volunteers who will help me cutting papers, piecing printed images, curling flower petals, and maybe stamping and sponging if time allows. I am maybe too ambitious. Time flies when we have fun.
These are new cards that I made today as sample cards.
As a routine, I went through each card to see if there is a card patient although everyone helped me during the OWH Cardmaking Party on Sunday. These are major card patient's conditions that need to be taken care of:
sticky adhesive residue
not enough adhesive
not peeled off dimensionals
no OWH stamp on the card back
Also I added the sentiment on those cards that will look better with it, stamped background images such as little stars in different colors and coated eyes and noses of animal images with Crystal Effect to glaze them. In the photo below, you will see what was I doing after the OWH cardmaking party. I have boxes ready and I put in the cards good to go by the theme.
Thanks to Carla, Susan, Kathy, Sandra, Karen, Janet Q., Alison, Caro Lou, Patricia, Shannon for coming to the OWH Cardmaking Party today. It was a great day! With so cute cards from Caro Lou, beautiful elegant cards from Patricia, great card kits from Carla, Shannon and me, we made total 275 cards.
Here are photos that I took to share with you. Hope you will enjoy them.
Alison is holding a Cupcake Happy Birthday card that she made with her mom's help. She punched out cupcakes and scallop circles. She even drew comics for a hero and inserted in her Any Hero thanks card. She is such a good help and creative sweet girl. She made a treat for everyone, too. By the time I took a photo, it was almost gone.
