Pink Tuesday in July

We all gathered at Pinky's on the peninsula for our 5th of July meeting.  It was a gorgeous sunny day, quite welcome as we have not had a lot of those this season.  Above you can see Mary's creative mess which she turns into what you see below.

Mary's creative cards and tags. 
  All these gals are so good at combining papers, inks, stamps, embellishments and odds and ends, and turning them into beautiful small works of art.

Pinky enjoyed making her first crocheted rug so much that she has decided to make another.  Here she is, tearing an old sheet into strips.  It is a very dusty job!  Also in front of her is a pile of rubber stamps.  She purchased them unmounted from the going out of business sale at Scrolls Works.  Pinky mounts her own stamps and saves a lot of money that way.  Maybe she can explain how she mounts them, in the comments section.

Karen was also busy working in one of her journals.  She has been using images her father drew long ago.  He tended to draw cowboy type figures and was quite talented.  I guess we can see where Karen got her talent for art and her love of cowboy related things.  The drawn images are unique and show what a flair her dad had for these caricatures.

I'm sorry I didn't get a good picture of what April was working on but she too was working with  paper and making cards.  And taking a few notes too, evidently.

Jan finally finished her second crocheted rug after having to tear half of it out the first time around due to its overly wonky nature.  It lays fairly flat now.

After she finished the rug she went on to doodle in her book in some similar colors.

Rufus, Pinky's cat, slept through most of the visit in spite of the presence of Rocky.  Good thing for Rocky.

See you next week at April's!
