Creative Crew 2023 - April

It's posting day for the Creative Crew. What exactly is the Creative Crew? We are a group of 7 card-making friends from various US locations who have a fun monthly creative adventure with a secretive twist. 

One of the group's members hosts each month. As host, she chooses a theme and puts together theme appropriate kits, which she mails to the other members, keeping one for herself, too. The group members all receive the same kit, but there is to be no conversation about the kit or the cards we're making. Then, on the 15th of the month, we all reveal our cards.

It's always fun to see how each person uses the kit.  

This month it was Carol's turn to host. In honor of National Zoo Lover Day (April 8th) she chose the theme...

Zoo Lovers

In Carol's words to the Crew, "I have a fascination with giraffes (maybe because they are so tall and I am so short)." Carol, I'm so glad you do because the giraffe image you sent is your AMAZING kit is gorgeous! 

This is what was in Carol's kit:

Image: Artful Stamper--African Queen
DSP: Giraffe paper is from African Safari Scrapbook paper and other DSP from her stash
Embellishments: Misc from her stash (including a pair of small eyelashes)
Ribbons: from her stash


Here's my card:

And - SQUEAL!!! Look at those eyelashes that Carol included in the kit!!!


Here's the inside:

Carol asked us to share what our favorite zoo animal is. That's so tough. I love all the babies - lions, elephants, giraffes especially. I also really like flamingos. Oh, so many others, too.

Be sure to check out all of the Creative Crew cards:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only things I used other than what was in Carol's kit was Recollections Ivory CS (for inside panel), SU Cinnamon Cider CS (for card base) and the Gina K Master Layouts 2 Die Set.

This card is so sweet. I so love the layout and the eyelashes make the card! And, now I realized I put mine on upside down!!!!!! I think the inside of your card is so sweet too.
