Swap Group Card #1


I made this card for a monthly swap group I'm in where we were divided up into groups of 4-5 and we just mail the other gals in our SUFriends4Ever swap group a card that we made that month.  It's really easy - no themes, and you can just make an extra of whatever you're making and send it out.  Well, since I hardly stamp anymore with the husband deployed, I am not able to "just make an extra" so mine are actually made specifically for this swap.  Thank goodness it's only 4 that I have to make, so I can keep up with it.  This time I did 2 and 2.  Two ladies will get this card, and 2 will get the card that I am posting in my next post on Saturday.  To be honest - even though Baja Breeze is my favorite color ever, I like the other card better.  It's more summery - bright and cheerful.  :)

In case you hadn't noticed, the days I tend to post new posts on (unless something comes up that I just have to add in) are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  It's working out pretty well for me so far, but I also will have to fill in Saturday with something other than my DT work for Card Patterns since my term is now up.  It will be interesting to see if I can squeeze in some extra stamping when it doesn't have a "deadline" attached!! ;)

  1. This is really pretty. I broke down and ordered another pack of this paper as part of my hoarding process this year. I will sorely miss Baja Breeze.

  2. This is sooo pretty! I love your flowers stamped in two colors on the white and the scalloped edge and layered buttons! Darling!

  3. Beautiful card! Love that paper!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
