Circle Swap

These cards are from the July meeting of the Lilac Inkers. We meet the 2nd Wednesday of the month to make and swap cards and share ideas. The theme for July was "circles". Anyone who wished to participate made their version of a card containing "circles". After passing the cards around for show 'n tell, we swapped cards so that everyone who brought a card, went home with a different card. This is a fantastic way to CASE ideas. The cards all contain "circles", but each one is unique, no two are alike. I am constantly impressed by everyone's creativity. When I look at the cards I can't help but say..."I wish I had thought of that"! This is a great group of very talented women and it is fun to be a member of the Lilac Inkers.

Sometime in the future I'll post pictures of our "challenge" cards. Did you ever buy a stamp you just had to have and after you got it home you couldn't figure out what to do with it? The Lilac Inkers have found a solution. Each month someone brings an "impossible" stamp to the meeting. The "challenge stamp" is stamped or embossed on cardstock and each person takes a couple copies home, makes a card(s) and returns it the following month. Whoever supplies the "challenge stamp" then gets to borrow the finished cards until the next meeting so they can CASE them at home. There have been some fantastic challenge cards made by these creative women.
