Shoe Box Swap Cards

Hello everyone!! I had such a great day today in Georgetown at the Austin Area Shoebox Swap!!! Lots of wonderful stamping friends, good good, and fabulous stamping!!! Tonight I will show you the Fall/Halloween cards we made. Later on in the week I will show you the Christmas cards, birthday cards, and all occassion cards.
This is one of my favorites....love the little leaves!! We had 45 minutes at each table and there were 4 card stations at each table. Since I am NOT a fast stamper, I didn't get a couple of them finished :(
The little turkey was made from punched shapes...tooo cute!!!
I love the colors on this fancy fold card...the oval piece flips around and has the sentiment stamped on another white oval piece.
Here are the Halloween cards. I made a Halloween card for my swap card but you can't see it till I get the bag finished. It will be #8 of 10 Halloween sets for my Grandbabys.
I may add some googly eyes to the owl....he needs a little something!!
I love this fancy fold. The coloring on the ghost isn't finished...I need to go back over it with a blender pen.
Don't look too close at the punched fence. I put it in the envie while the glue was wet and the fence moved. I'll add a ribbon to the bottom or a black cardstock strip to hide the oops!!

It's after midnight and I have turned into a pumpkin!! Thanks for visiting....have a wonderful Sunday!!!

Oh such great designs, Joan, very inspiring to see them. I adore the 'Boo to you' halloween card and the very first one with the little leaves, but all are fab. Sounds like it was a great day. CoB

All are so pretty, fun, and cute! Love that first one too. But they're all so pretty, it's hard to select just one. Sounds like y'all had a wonderful time.

Why oh why did I have to miss this?!! The decision to stay put was necessary ... but oh the ache of missing out on all this creative fun with my girlfriends!! So glad to see some of the glimpses of a great day though!
