    I think I got the cream of the crop on jelly prints.

    I laid them all out out and selected focal points that I thought went with the backgrounds.

    Yeah, that was time consuming and changed multiple times.

    The hard part was to get the right ingredients from the bits and bobs to complete them.

    The word pages were full of good words, but I usually don't include words on my cards.

    I am always in for a cat card, but the GROOVY baby card really hit my funny bone, in a good way. If card makes me chuckle, I know it hit me in just the right place.

    Gorgeous cards, JavaZarf. I absolutely adore "Mundane" - love them all!

    I really identify with what you said about the challenge. I did the same as you - selecting focal images to go with the backgrounds - but found it hard to pick at least 2 bits per card and I usually don't use words either, so that was the biggest challenge.

    I thought it was going to be an uneventful day. Instead cards from Catherinejo, Javazarf and kehlenn arrived!
    They are all so great!
    I am so impressed with everyone's cards.
    And thank you to the players who made hostess cards.

    I made these cards. Items used from BluSkyHare=BSH, all cards used her Gelli backgrounds.

    SO FANCY, BSH sent: bottles, some of the paper near the words "so fancy",
    NOT SO NUTS BSH sent everything but the brown leaf die cut and the white flower. Yes,she sent me the cute squirrel, the small strip of paper under the squirrel, and the yellow strip above.

    IT HAPPENED QUICKLY BSH: sent the crown, the girl, the papers, the words. I added the flower and the black and white tiny tag.



    The WILD only used the flower and the words. IT reads: "the wild would lose us, we were not able to follow". I cut that and made up that phrase myself. I wonder if I need to use one more item on the card, if maybe the words dont count as one of the 2. Text/words were required on all the cards. So I was seeing the text as a third item.

    The BLOOM FOR ME used only the flower and the strip of yellow paper. I found the pink butterfly on the floor and liked how it brought out the pink in the gelli background. I am keeping this one.
