Cards For Mega Swap

Baby Girl Card Swap

St Patrick'd Day Card Swap

Easter Card Swap


Valentines Day Card Swap

These are some cards I did for a Mega Swap I am in. I brought out a few "old friends" to make my cards with. Seems I am always getting hung up on using mostly the new SU "IN COLORS", along with my all time favorite "chocolate chip", so I grabbed some of the other great colors for a change!
For the Baby girl challenge, I used Purely Pomegranate, and DS paper from Heidi Grace...I love her papers! I cut the onsie out with my Cricut and stamped it with BoHo Backgrounds.
The ST Patrick's Day cards are made with Wild Wasabi. I decided to make shaker cards, but of course ran out of the thick foam, so I had to improvise....but they turned out "okay"! This was a challenge for me to do, as I only own a 99 cent and 1 $1 Michael's St. Patty's Day stamps!
For the Easter swap card, I used Elegant Eggplant and So Saffron, and my oval "Nesties"....was trying to get an "egg" look! I purchased this older, retired SU stamp set last summer at a garage sale for only $2...woowho! I stamped the bunnies, but couldn't help myself, had to add stickles to all the little stamped bunny dots!
The Valentine swap card is a "replica" of a previous post, just changed ink colors to Rose Red and used a non SU DS paper for the Top Note Die.
I still have 2 more sets to make for this swap, they are being mailed on Monday...thank goodness! The swaps have been lots of fun, but I think I signed up for way too many, must be the cold, boring days, I haven't been out of the house since last Friday...we are going to Walmart today in the cold~blowing snow, but think I am looking forward to it!
