Last Two Card Sets for Mega Swap











These are the last two sets of cards I finished for the Mega Swap! I had to hurry up and mail them today, as our weather predicted for this late afternoon and tomorrow is "nuts"!
First card is for the group "Women's Birthday", but it could be used for almost anything as I didn't add a birthday sentiment! I used my favorite SU DS paper (at this moment, as I haven't seen the new catty...yet!), called Bella Rose, I decided I could use it, since it is going to be in the new catty again...yippee! I used the SU A Rose Is A Rose set, I LOVE this set, as its a two step stamp technique and is so darn pretty when stamped. I stamped 18 leaves, 3 for each card, and 12 roses, though I only used one for each card. I cut all 18 leaves and 6 roses out and mounted them all on foam dots. I think they turned out pretty!
The next card was for the Baby Boy Group. I had a little more in mind to do, but once I watched the weather "warning" I thought I had better get a move on! My hubby bought me both the Martha Stewart crown punch and the elephant punch for Christmas. I love that elephant as it embosses his ear, so it stands up...so cute....I had fun punching these little elephants. I printed the sentiment on my computer, I know the crown is a bit big for the "ellies" but I like it that way! I have one more swap to complete for this month, that I hope to finish in next few days, then I can get back to my own card and paper making! I will lso post the rest of my chocolates frommy chocolate swap soon! Don't forget to scroll on down for the link for a couple of blog candys, they are yummy!
