I CANNOT believe I have not posted for over a month! I bet someone is thinking about putting out a APB on me! I have been swamped lately at my Army J-O-B and the many projects I have taken on since Jared went to Germany to occupy my time. He says I have taken on way too much, and there may be some truth to that! Yikes!This is my team Christmas swap card I made while I was in San Antonio. It was really nice kicking back and ordering room service. I caught up on all my blog stalking, FB, and Twitter! HEHE!
The funniest thing was, of course, I found a scrapbook store about 5 miles away from the hotel. This wasn’t your ordinary franchise store either! I was warmly welcomed to join in on a little cropping and getting to know the locals. The store is called The Scrapbook Store inc. and I must say, the owner was fabulous and made me dream of opening my own store someday! Their theme is a home away from home, and boy do they make it happen. I spent the whole weekend there!
For this swap, I decided to go for it and get out of my comfort zone a use Close To My Heart’s Clear Cards. The top picture is the card from the front, and the second picture is the card’s inside. I had so much fun using the Ms. Holiday Cheer Stamp Set and the Creative Basics Mistletoe Collection. (Notice how I used the ribbon from this kit to make the “leaves”! Too cute and clever!) I used a few embellishments as well, okay alot of them! HA! I used the new Red Sparkles from the assortment pack and the flowers, and epoxy brads from the Mistletoe Level 2 Assortment. These embellies are hot! I can’t wait to join in on a Valentine’s Swap! Yippee!
Oh, and if you are one of the girlies that joined Donna’s swap, than you SO MUCH! All of the cards were just gorgeous! We are just such a creative bunch of friends!
