My cards for the May card swap.

I am finally getting around to posting the cards I sent out to Millie & Kim.  Been a busy month!
 This card I sent to Millie using the rub on fairies she sent me last month.
 I sent this card to Millie and Kim.  Just a simple card using some pretty doily stamps from MME.  I just wanted to find a way to use them.  I have many more stamps I need to use. I think stamps are just as addicting as pretty paper. 
 This one was made using a small white paper bag.  At the top there is a tag you can pull out and use to put a sentiment on.  There is a pocket on the front where you can put a gift card or whatever treat you want.  I just put a small stamp set in that pocket when I mailed it to the ladies.  I got this idea from All that Scraps Blog  This one I sent to Millie.
 This card I sent to Kim.  She sent me some K&Co stickers last month and I used them to make this card.  She also sent me the paper and the brown ribbon I used to make the card.  So basically Kim sent me almost all the goodies to make this card.  I hope she liked it.  The heart I made in the Cricut craft room basic shapes.
 I sent this one to Kim.  I changed them up a bit by sending each one made with a different color.  I forgot to mention the stamp is Latte Kiki la rue, a C.C. Design.  I got her at All that Scraps  They have some really cute stamps.
 Here are some of the goodies I sent the ladies in the May swap.  The cupcake stamp set is the one I put in the pocket of the cards I made them.
These stamps I sent the ladies I found at my local scrapbook store.  Have to support the local shops.  I thought they were cute and whimsical for spring.
I hope they enjoyed their goodies and cards.  I was trying to make up for my lack of cards I sent in last months swap.
Happy Crafting!

More May cards

Today I got Millie's May cards for our swap.  Here is what she sent.
 This card is so cool.  I love the tickets attached to the card.
I love this beach themed card.  It all flows together so nicely.
Great cards Millie!
Now on to the goodies she sent me!
 These candy dots are so cute.  I know it is hard to see in the picture but they are little buttons.  The best friend rubber stamp is a nice touch.
 She also sent me a bunch of paper.  Woot Woot!  Who doesn't love more paper.
I love this beautiful plaque Millie sent me.  Thank you Millie.

Ok next on to the cheery cherry challenge.  Millie sent me a cherry rubber stamp and a couple of cherry pieces of pattern paper.  Now my task is to make a card using these items.  I will try my best.
Thanks Millie for the beautiful cards and wonderful goodies this month.
I put my swap cards and goodies in the mail today.  So keep a eye on the mail box they should come Saturday or Monday.
Happy Crafting!
