An Oldie but a Goodie....


You haven't seen this card before, sort of.  I made THIS version of it and LOVED it so much that I had to make it as my WOW swap for Convention this past summer (and I gave the original in the link above to my mom 'cause I knew she wouldn't THROW IT AWAY!!!! he he he).  I gave away every one of my swap cards that I made before I thought to take a picture of it, so several of my friends were nice enough to take pics of it for me - one even burned me a CD with all sorts of pics on it in addition to my swap card!!!! 

WOW-Swap-Close-up-2 I wish that I had had enough Jumbo Eyelets to do two on each side instead of one - 4 on each card - but I think I made 36 of the cards, and multiply that by 4 and I just didn't have the time or energy to do it.  I was moving from Oklahoma to Delaware the week before Convention and most of my stamping stuff was in storage from February through the end of July when we moved here to Delaware, so as many of you might remember, I was a little limited in what I could do.  Convention was a blast though and you have seen some of the WOW swaps that I got and they were all awesome, so it was worth it!!!
