I am so glad to get the month of January over. It was a cold month. At least in February we have the Winter Olympics this year, and as always Valentine's day. I also have 2 birthdays this month in the family to celebrate. That can help the winter months go by a little easier. Now onto the swap. Here are the cards I sent out this month.
This little honey bee card is made using MME Honey paper. I also used the MME Honey stamp (Just Be You). The flower in the center came from Michael's dollar bins last spring. I wish I would have bought more of them at the time. I love the centers on these flowers.
I just love fairies so when I seen this stamp from Prima I had to have it. The stamp is called Fairy Rhyme. The blue paper I used is from Piggy tales Georgie Porgie Collection. I got this paper from one of their warehouse sale boxes awhile back. I am such a sucker for warehouse sale boxes. The yellow paper is from Webster's pages clean & simple line. I believe I got the butterfly charm from Wal-Mart.
For the flower stamp I used MME "The Sweetest thing, Bluebell Remember stamp set". I used Stampin Up Ink Not Quite Navy. The pattern paper was also from MME Bluebell Bright Blossom. I have a good bit of MME paper and stamps. My LSS was having a good sale so I scooped them up last year. You will probably see more cards done in the future with MME papers and stamps.
This is a different kind of card. I used my Stampin Up envelope punch board to make this card. The paper is 6x6 from Docrafts Spots & Stripes Pastels. The small clouds are made using a Fiskars small cloud punch. Dear Lizzy stamps were used for the bigger cloud and hot air balloon.
Now on to the goodies I sent out with the cards.
This is the paper I used on the hot air balloon card. I also sent a pack to the ladies. Oh and I had to send some candy. I also put some chocolate in there but didn't get a pic of it.
As you can tell I sent the ladies the same stamp set I made the above card with. Also some clouds and some Prima clips.
