Card Swap Card

Remember last week when I shared with you that I was making cards for a new catalog card swap and was cutting out 66+ pieces. Well here is the finished card. Did you think it was going to turn out like this by the picture I took? Share your comments with me. I love to hear what your thoughts are. Here is the finished card! I guess there is no protocol when it comes to showing swap cards before they are received by all recipients.
This card was made with the new stamp set Petal Pizzazz.
The In Color paper and ink are: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss.
The circle was make with our new Circle Scissors Plus (love this new tool.) I also used both the wide and large oval punch.

What Have I Been Up To

Oh my it seems like I have been up to everything! A big THANKS goes out to all those who attended my annual Open House! What a blast we had. However I forgot to take pictures. Yikes! I can't believe it. Well I kinda can. I was so into talking and sharing I forgot to whip out my camera.

Soon after the Open House I hosted a Valentines Card Class. Again, Love the time I get to share with my customers--however no pictures.

And then I joined a card swap. I could not design an easy card either. Oh no this card all the pieces had to be cut out....... all 66 + pieces......

Yes, I did get the card completed and in the mail. I am not sure on the protocol if I have to wait until everyone receives their swap or if I can post the completed picture right away. So I will research that one and get back with you.

In case you are wondering these flowers are stamped with the new stamp set Petal Pizzazz.

Have a wonderful day
