Card Swap April - Black and White

This month was Black and White cards.  It was fun but a challenge.  I was in aw with what the ladies came up with.  Laurie was our host and she set a beautiful table complete with black and white place mats that she made from poster board and punches.  Laurie also made clear plastic baskets filled with kisses and decorated with a flower and an Easter chick. Sorry that I didn't take a picture of these.

middle: Laurie, Lani, Erin, Kathy
front: Gayle, Debbie, Judy

Ok I forgot to keep one of mine so yes it is missing.  Erin's is hard to see but it looks like an Oreo cookie and is so cute.  They all are beautiful cards, what a great bunch of women.  Everyone is so creative.  Next month is a feminine card so guess I better start working on that one. 
Thanks for stoping by.
Be sure to leave the ladies some love.  Let them know what you think of their cards.

My Creations Display Album for April 2012

Jenn my DIL is the greatest. She came up with this one for our Display Album Z1054 from one of the doilies that I have hanging on my wall.  She made the size so that she could get 4 on one 12 x12 page.  Jenn also used the Lucy Workshop on the Go G1034 the Stamp Set comes with the Lucy Workshop on the Go.  Inks used are Blush, Pear, Grey Wool, Garden Green.
Here it is:

 The flowers in the center of the page are cut with the AP cart the sizes are listed on the stamp set next to each stamp that has a coordinating cut.  It is a 2 step stamp actually 3 if you count the Cricut cut.  It has the outline stamp and the fill in stamp that fit perfectly  when paired with the Cricut cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. 
The background for the April was a 2 layer Cricut cut from the AP cart too.  This cartridge is so versatile and has so many uses that I rarely use my punches. 
Oh yes!  The Butterfly I can’t forget the Butterfly it is also a cut from the AP cart. And a matching stamp on the same set.  Then to top it off Jenn used Bitty Sparkles Z1263 and Liquid Glass Z679 and Paradise Paper Flowers Z1710.
