hello friend

Hi Everyone
Glad you stopped in today. I had my monthly club meeting this past week and I want to share the card that I made for the challenge for our  January meeting. Just a little background - We usually have a challenge each month and we are given some type of product, usually an embellishment,or a stamp, and we are supposed to use it in a project of some kind.We are to use it, some how, in our creation.We generally get the challenge items one month and then bring in the finished project with the challenge items incorporated in it, the following month.

Well Denise gave each of us a magnet that looked like a badge. The magnet I chose had feathers on it. As luck would have it, I picked up a new die last weekend, and it was a feather. So, I was all set to make this card. I had a few other things hanging around so I added those items to the card too.

I used some corrugated paper from a box, and some black and yellow card stock. I also had a piece left over from playing around with my Gelli Plate, used that as the bottom panel you see on the card. Then there are the feathers and that round badge looking magnet. I used white card stock in making the feathers. I sponged ink onto the feathers shapes and then snipped them to look more realistic. I used stamps from Tim Holtz to make the "hello friend" sentiment.

The challenge next month is going to involve glitter shapes. I chose some swirly ones, so it will be interesting to see where my imagination leads me. There were other types of glitter shapes given out so we all have different things to work with.

In our club, usually someone volunteers to lead a tutorial for the project for that month. Denise suggested in place of her tutorial,  that we do a round robin of sorts for next month. Everyone will start their own card, with one thing on it, then we pass the cards around and as that happens each of us will add something to each of the cards. Hope that made sense. LOL We've never done that before so I will have to let you know how it turns out. Sounds interesting. Hmmmmm......

I am submitting this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping in today

Love the feathers -- how clever of you to incorporate them this way with that button. I think I would have been puzzled as to what to do with the button, but you rocked it!
