Pink and Red Explosion!

Today was card swap! Am I on the ball or what?? Enjoy our selection of Valentine Cards. I love them all. I think everyone's work is only getting better! I love it!

The make-n-take was a fun one. Christine brought her cuttlebug and a cute floral die. We cut flowers out of colorful felt. Then I got my Top Note Die from SU! out and showed the ladies how you can cut two of those and sew three sides together to make a cell phone holder. CUTE!

Shape Up Already!!

Wow! The holiday season really had me running this year. I am usually pretty well organized and while I don't shop real early, I'm not usually finishing up on the 23rd! This Christmas was so hectic and never felt like I was ahead of the game. And then to top it all off, I got a nasty head cold on Christmas Eve. Ugh!

All this ranting is to explain why it has taken me three weeks to get December's swaps posted here. The theme for December was Shaped Cards. They were to be anything other than a square or rectangle. I felt this one was quite a challenge. But this month's Creative Cards magazine has several cute ones. If only I had seen that before the swap!

So enjoy taking a look at all the creative cards by me and my talented friends. Oh-Nickie did a super cute Make-n-Take that involved chocolate, so it didn't make it to picture day-we ate them.
