Today at Makare's

Our swap meet at Makare's today was cool. The challenge came from the Summer edition of the Take Ten Sampler. None of us had done it till this morning and I for one bemoaned the fact that I had set it. Very difficult especially if one had to cut out the diamonds by hand. There was no way I was going to do that two hours before the meeting so I just punched out 3cm squares which meant that I had to make the card longer to fit all four in. Only two things came to mind yesterday was that it had to be my new Montaga Maori stamp and the colour had to be green. Above was the result with the first two cards only having three diamonds. I used only one ink colour which was handsome hunter - at long last as I never use this colour. The other stamp set was French Flair. The cs was handsome hunter, old olive, and garden green. Accessories were black ribbon, gold wire and fun fiber. This is Joeleen's effort. I was intrigued by her colour combinations. Bashful blue, cameo, barely banana and certainly celery. Such a complete contrast from mine. Cool!I received my 'Bind it all' this week and this is what we made today out of chip board coasters. This was so I can get someone to read the instructions of the 'bind it all' and show us how to use it. Joeleen did the honours - Thanx!

I want to get that bind it all! I think that'll be my next major purchase. I love the book you created. It's very inspiring.
