Once a month a group of Demos meet at the Wendy's on 321 in Granite Falls, NC. It's usually only 4 of us, but this time we had 8. We had so much fun! We were explaining to some of the new people about our name Southern Belles. We were named, with our permission of course, by Tina. Tina is from Long Island originally! We have Twila from South Dakota and Patti from around Baltimore. Patti was visiting and thinking of joining soon. Maybe that's why we were explaining. So, of course, we started talking about being southern spread liberally with some "Bless your hearts!" Twila was saying that when she moved down here 20 years ago, she and her husband noticed a lot of big hair at the mall. When she needed a haircut, he told her not to come home with mall hair. She must have mentioned this to the beautician. The comment made was, "The higher the hair, the closer to God." All of us native southerners have assured her that was the first time we ever heard that saying! But we are in the Bible Belt.
We swap cards at our gatherings. It's a very talented group. I'm going to share them today. Some of our cards are original and some are Pinterest or Facebook copies. If you see a card that looks like one you made, please consider it the highest form of flattery. So here we go!
This card was made by Kaye Owenby. I do think that it is an original. She was playing around with watercolor paper and the Painted Harvest stamp set.
This card was made by Martha Morin. I do believe I have seen this on Pinterest. It's from Joanne James at The Crafty Owl blog.
This card was made by Twila Hartford. The black sentiment on this is embossed in clear embossing powder. It's really striking in person!
This card was made by Beth Fox using the Merry Cafe stamp set. It works perfectly with Coffee Cafe.
Tina Lesson brought us 2 cards. This one was left over from another swap she did. On the next one, I'll show you the outside and the inside.
That's it for this month of swaps. I've said it before. If you are a SU demonstrator and live close by, you are welcome to join our little get together. It's so much fun to share with those who love what you love.
