Card Session at Yo Momma's house

On Sunday, December 30, several ladies met at Yo Momma's house for a card making sessions. The following Scrappin Packin Mommas were there Yo Momma (Lizzy), Momma 411(Patty L) and Karakoa Momma (Laura). From the Sweet & Sassy group we had Peppermint Patty (Patty P), and Starburst (Kaci), also Barbara Lajaunie and Yo Momma's little girl, Sara.

We started at 5:oo p.m. and shut down the card making session around 3:30 a.m the next morning. Between all of the girls we created a total of 83 cards. The picture to the left is all the stamps/punches that we shared with each other.

Yo Momma, with her assistant Sara made a total of 12 cards, which will go into a box for a teacher gift.

Momma 411 created 11 (cards to left)cards, also took advantage of everyone's stamps, stamped out quite a few of the stamps in different colors, on white and ivory cardstock for future card making.

Peppermint Patty created 13 cards, and she also created 4 card boxes, which included making the dividers for each and she did a lot of stamping on all her dividers, she did not make her first card until well after midnight. One of her card boxes was a gift to her sister, which she had to deliver the next day, so everyone there chipped in and donated one card for her sister's box.

Starburst created 15 cards and also made a card box, with dividers. Kaci thanks for bringing those really great stamps for card making.

Karakoe Momma created a total of 12 cards, she had a list of cards to make and was able to complete them all with a few extras. Earlier in the day she created her card box. Which was so cute. Laura's card box on the left and one of her cards on the right
Barabara created 14 cards, she used a lot of ribbon and fibers so really precious cards. She also took advantage of the stamps, and punches.

Sara helped her mom with paper selections. Throughout the evening each lady there received a beautiful handmade card from Sara. Her momma created a card for her and everyone there wrote a little note to Sara in the card.

Can't wait for a future card making session... hope that Eastbank Momma (Tammy) will be able to make the next one.

We each brought a little something to contribute to the snack table (Stir Fry veggies, peach clobber, rice krispy treats, crab dip with crackers, cake, and cut macorni.

Overall we had a wonderful time just socializing and sharing our creative thoughts
