November CYRious Stampers Meeting

We held our November meeting on Monday, and this is the VERY CUTE project that Pat showed us how to do:

This is a darling shadow box frame. We used the Newsprint DSP for the background, stamped with stamps from the Sense of Time set and the Sanded background stamp. Then we stamped the big clock with Chocolate Chip on Crumb Cake and layered it on Chocolate Chip card stock. The saying is stamped on Very Vanilla and layered onto Chocolate Chip. We were then able to add an embellishment (non-SU) that coordinates with the Cog Punch. Very cute, don't you think???? Thanks Pat, for a wonderful project!

These are the card swaps that we received. Denise came up with using a Joy Fold card and Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard and/or Early Espresso. Denise wasn't at the meeting, so we don't know what hers looks like.
Diane's card, she used the Joy Fold in the vertical and used the ribbon to hold it closed. Great Job!
Pat's card. She used the Joy Fold in the horizontal and used the square scallop to hold it closed. Great Job!
This is my card. I, too used it in the horizontal and used the cute little bird to hold mine closed.
