More Swap Cards

Good Monday morning!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to face the week ahead!! I have a list a mile long to get done today....hopefully, I can finish up my Christmas cards today and get my Sister's box ready to mail!! Anyway...I wanted to show you a few more cards from the shoebox swap I went to this weekend. Isn't this card gorgeous...it was made with the Kitchen Sink Poinsettia stamp....I love the olive doily and gorgeous dp, too!!!! The card was a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" so when I got home I cut it down to fit into an A2 envie. I messed up on this one...it was supposed to have 5 ornaments stamped but I started the first one too far away from the border so I could only fit 4 on the cardstock piece. Oh well, I'm sure no one will notice!!! I cut this card down, too...it was 6" long and I didn't have an envie to fit so I tweeked it just a little!!

I added the white scalloped layer, ribbon, and sentiment when I got home because I smudged the black ink...I just love this craft!! We can always figure out a way to fix our little mistakes!!!


This was my DD Holly's design...simply elegant...I didn't change a thing!!!

Love the colors on this one...sooo pretty!!!
Thanks for stopping by today...hope your day is wonderful!!!

This fabulous array of Christmas creations makes me sad that I missed the Austin Christmas Swap this year, Joan! Would love to have stamped with you and Holly again, but I could not miss the Christmas piano recital for my granddaughters.

It looks like you all had a fun and festive day with all these sensational designs!!

I love the idea of a shoebox swap, and the designs are just great. Yes, we crafters always have a fix for a smudge or a mistake, lol. coB
