Just a quick post as I'm still getting ready for my sis-in-law to come visit and stamp with me!! Yaaaay!!! And my adorable little 3 1/2 y.o. niece too!!!! I also have to pack so hubby and I can take off tomorrow on a quick business trip to Amarillo...........sure glad it's so far inland with Hurricane Ike bearing down on Texas.............now all my wonderful Texas friends..........please STAY SAFE!!!!! Lots of prayers and hugs being sent your way!!!!
So here are a couple of quick swap cards I've made............these little ATCs are actually TTCs!!! The fabulously creative Melanie Muenchinger came up with this super cute and fun swap idea on the Gina K. forum at SCS. To have a swap of little cards that we could collect in one of the little tins that she designed some AWESOME stamps to decorate with! (okay, please ignore the bad grammar!! LOL). So these little Tin Trading Cards are what I designed..........and OF COURSE they had to have sparkle!!!! The hardest part was choosing which stamp set to use..............sooooooo many fabulous stamps from the Gina K. company!!!! And y'all know what a tremendous ADDICT I am!!!! LOL So I settled on Summer Harvest. Now I'll be working on making my little collector's tin!!
And then I joined a Paper Pretties swap and I have to apologize HUGELY!!!! Yes, I got busy, but that's still no excuse........I'm so sorry I was so late in sending these off!! But I was thrilled to make my first card with my little September SOTM Cowgirl Sophia! I tried to keep the design fairly simple, but interesting as I had to make 11 of them!! I hope everyone likes them!!!! By the way...........Paper Pretties is having a huge SALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 45% off everything!!!!!!!! I couldn't resist and added a few more "Pretties" to my collection!!!!!
