My Talented Friends

Good Morning Friends!

I just *have* to brag this morning about how talented my friends are.  And I mean *seriously* talented!!

Sunday evening I had a downline meeting and everyone was invited to participate in a swap if they chose to.  Well, let me tell you, the 5 ladies who swapped all submitted fantastic cards and I just have to show them all to you here!!

There is something that really stands out for me, for each of the cards, and I will tell you what it is:
Rachelle Arcaro - Terrific and effective use of colours to ensure that the stamped image remains the focal point of the card, even though the designer paper is "all over".  The black oval mat for the sentiment ties in beautifully with the black outline for the image
Melanie Mahar - Absolutely LOVE this ingenious closure for the card.  Simple but so effective!
Dianne Ross - Love how Gorgeous Grunge has been used to create a background stamp to alleviate the "white space".  And the triple banner for the sentiment is a great way to show off this flag!
Cecilia Chow - I absolutely LOVE the overall effect of this card.  The colours are beautiful together, the Baker's Twine at the bottom balances out the sentiment, and the sponging keeps everything very, very soft.  Love it!
Janet Busby - Outside - Love how striking Summer Starfruit and Basic Black are together.  And the embossed panel on the front takes care of the "white space" without being busy.   A really wonderful detail!

Janet Busby - Inside Card - what wonderful use of Sale-A-Bration products!  I have to admit I sometimes struggle with Starfruit but Janet has made a gorgeous card and shown me its true potential!

So?  See what I mean?  These cards are gorgeous and I couldn't have been more pleased when I came home and got a chance to really take a good look at what I had received.  I am so happy and so proud to consider these ladies my friends.   Are they talented or what?!?   I am so lucky to have them as part of my team. 

And you?  If you wish to be a part of our team and share in the fun we have at out monthly meetings, check out the details on THIS page or contact me directly.

Hoping all of you are enjoying your week so far!  Have a wonderful day and God Bless,    ~Cynthia   <><
