Kim's swap cards

Here are Kim's November swap cards.  Kim also sent me a nice stack of white card stock.  A bunch of A2 envelopes.  Plus some pistachio green card stock from Stamping Up.  (I have no excuse not to keep those cards coming)

Kim made some really cool cards with different folds to them.  My pictures could not do them justice.  Unfortunately I am not great with the camera.  Here is the front of the card.  I love the use of 2 different types of pattern paper.
Ok here is the inside of the card.  Is this not cool?
This is the front of the card.  Such a pretty card.
Here is the inside of the card.  Both sides flip open.  Pretty neat card.
Thanks Kim for the cool cards that inspire and awe me every month.  Thank you also for the wonderful card stock that will keep me in cards for quite some time.
Happy Crafting!

Millie's swap cards.

Here are Millie's cards for the November card swap.
She also included some wood stickers with my initial J & little clothespins with a red gingham heart, star, stocking, tree, snowflake, & mitten attached to them.  
 This card has a lot going on.  She stamped the side of the card.  Embossed the paper and stamped on the little hexagons.  Such a sweet hello card.  You can never have to many hello cards in your stash.
Ok I love Millie's cards but I have to say this is my favorite out of the ones she sent me this month.  I just love that reindeer.  Not to mention she put bling on the card.  Very pretty card Millie.
This card is so pretty with all the layers.  I have yet to do this type of card.  Now that Millie just moved right up the street from me I will be having a card making session with her and this will be a card I will want to try.  Before she moved here she lived a hour and half away from me.  Who knows what kind of crafty trouble we will get into.

Thanks for the cards and goodies Millie!
Happy Crafting!

November card swap

I usually do this at the beginning of the month.  I am a bit behind this month.  Next month we are not exchanging cards till Christmas so I won't post next months till after Christmas some time.
Here are the cards I made for the November swap.
These are all A2 cards.

I used sizzix dies for both of these cards.  I added some bells to both cards.  Not practical for mailing.  More for handing out to co-workers and friends.  These dies make it easy to make a card though.  Just make them the focal point and add on.

With this card I used a wooden doily.  I added a little jeweled gingerbread man to the bow.  The stamp I used was one Millie gave me.  Well lets just say she bought up 2 boxes of stamps she no longer wanted and let me have my pick.  This is one that I picked.  It is so cute.  Millie & Kim love their rubber stamps.  I like my die cut machines.  It is what makes the swaps so fun.  We each have our own styles.  We enjoy getting cards that we normally wouldn't make.  Since we started this swap I now have a wide range of cards in my stash.
I will be putting Millie's and Kim's up here soon.
