More Swap Cards

Good morning everyone!! Can you believe it's October 20th already...OMG!!! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and then Christmas....I guess I better start making some Christmas lists!! Since my Grands are getting older, it's really hard to find just the right gifts. They are pretty good about giving me suggestions but you can probably guess what they want....ipads, telephones, computers, laptops...yikes!!! What happened to dolls and trucks...LOL!!! Anyway....
Here are more of the cards we made at the Austin Area Shoebox Swap a couple of weeks ago....lots of great inspiration, for sure!!!!
The first card was designed by Lydia Fiedler..... she used a Stampin Up set for the ornaments and isn't the glittery paper pretty!!!
This is a Whipper Snapper Santa image....tooo cute!!
I love this little cowgirl but I can't remember the stamp company.
This was one of my favorites...the balloon was made fron several oval punched pieces.

Here are four wonderful flat cards perfect for mailing...the owl card in the back will make a great guy card!!

Thanks for visiting.....have a great day!!!
