I'm going to show how to make Artist Trading Cards.  You will need a glue stick, color pencils or gel roll pens. lace glitter, or what ever to want to put on your card. They are 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches so don't get carried away. I'll bring the card stock, paper flowers ( what ever else Edwina has a dye cut for) So go to pinterest and check out ATC's  Patty

We had a ball at last month's meeting  with our Oz theme and our four members who are past 80.  There was an excellent turn-out, including husbands, mothers and other guests,  good food, good fun and good feeling.  Our four octagenarians  are Barbara Chapman, Barb Keeling, Sandy Feingold and Arline Lowenthal.   Each got a bag of goodies as a birthday present.  Gloria Hazel got the big birthday cake decorated with Oz characters.  Many members brought Oz dolls and other pieces.  We had witch's legs under the house, a field of poppies, other witches, a winged monkey,  munchkin houses,  the Wizard  flying off in a balloon, and much more.  Here are some photos taken by Deb Tomcik's husband, Jim.  Deb will have more photos to share at the next meeting.  We thank Deb for hosting this party/challenge and all those who brought food,  decorations, gifts and Oz dolls. 

Deb's husband, Jim, will do a program for us in the fall on photographing our dolls.
Lois had a call recently from Gloria "Mimi" Winer.  She's beating her cancer, with some tumors gone and othesr very shrunken.  She said her oncologist said he couldn't believe he'd cured her stage 4 colon cancer!  She also needed to tell IOLCC that she will soon be 80 and wished she could have come to our party.  What a tough old lady.  Many of us have taken classes from her, and learned so much about doll-making.  
Deb Tomcik's polymer sculpting workshops are taking the summer off.   Next one is on September 22nd at Deb's home in Carlsbad.  Each student is in a different place in making her doll.  Deb has done a wonderful job of teaching us individually.  She is willing to take new students and start at the beginning with them.

Stephanie is sorry she is posting this late.
