Stamp club project

I know, I know, where have I been?! Not stamping much, sadly. I did go to my first stamp show a couple of weeks ago up in Columbia. It was fantastic!! I hope I can get to another one sometime this year. Pretty much all of our stamp club -- the Stamp Mafia -- made the trip and we had a blast. Loved watching all the demos by Stampers Anonymous, Inky Antics and so on. I could have stayed all day. Just doing our part to help stimulate the economy, y'know. Heh.

Speaking of the mafia girls, we had our monthly stamp club meeting on Thursday night and it was my turn to host. This was one of the projects we made. I had seen the idea for a hinged card in the SU demo magazine, but these aren't SU stamps that I used. The sentiment is by PSX and the focal image is by Elzybells. I colored in the image with the aquapainter and ink pads for my card here, but markers or chalks and a blender pen would have worked just as well.
I know Easter is still over a month away, but we are definitely having spring-like weather here lately. Sunny and 72, anyone? Yeah, Charleston weather rocks this time of year!
