Hello, and happy Tuesday! It's been an eventful week, and I'm so happy to have something to share with you today. I finished up a swap that is coming due on the 22nd. My dear friend Mary (aka ohiomary on splitcoaststampers) is hosting a getting ahead swap. She had the great idea to swap general occasion cards to help participants have cards on hand for any occasion. All you had to do was choose the occasion, and create 6 cards. I chose to do get well, and birthday since it seems that those are what I am always short of.
These cards are pretty much cases from a Stamp-A-Stack that I attended a couple of months ago hosted by two of my uplines, Nancy and Heather. Hi Nancy (I know you check in once in a while)!!!!! Nancy and Heather hold the best events full of fun, fabulous cards, and friendship! It's always a good time!!! I added some DSP to the background of the original card, and I couldn't resist this little possum with his heart of blue. Inside simply reads Get Well Soon.
The birthday card is a shameless case of the card we made at Stamp-A-Stack. I really didn't change a thing except adding the dazzling diamonds on the frosting. I love this card, but it isn't at all easy to photograph because of that cupcake flap. This was indeed some "creative" positioning inside one of my favorite picture frames in order to get a decent picture.
