Virtual Card Swap

I just finished this card and really love how it turned out. This was my first Virtual Card swap, the note card i got only had the green gingham and yellow polka dot background. I added the stamped saying and the flower. The flower was a sizzix die that i chalked and put together.
The way a virtual card swap works, is the hostess will send the participants each a blank note card that they will need to add to in some way, then the participants will post a picture of their end result for everyone to see. It is fun to see what everyone else came up with.

So, I finally used my Martha Stewart Halloween clearance stuff i just had to have last year! lol I got the Halloween sayings stamp set and the bat punch. I don't make that many Halloween cards, but I thought I should change that. I gave the bats eyes with my SU white pen. I got the idea for the card in the recent card maker magazine. Enjoy!

A Little Brag Book


That word always makes me think of Seinfeld, lol I was not an avid watcher of the show, but you tend to pick things up here and there. I made this little book for my Summer Secret Sister, it is to go in with a bunch of other goodies in my final gift to her. I also included a package of badge holders, so she could make one of her own. I made it with open spots so she could add pictures in it. I got the idea from a tutorial on SCS. I really like the way it turned out, but i always have a hard time photographing shinny things. Hope you like it.

PS- The pictures of the inside of the book are turned on their side, even though i took them the right way, i couldn't get them to rotate, so you will have to cock your head to read the quotes! =)

I just love this stamp, it looks just like my Lily baby. She has a very coy smile, makes you wonder what shes been up to. It is from Whipper Snapper, it's called smiling lab. I stamped her on watercolor paper and colored her in with watercolor pencils and a blender pen.
