Oh, my...what a WONDERFUL day!

Yesterday I spent the day stamping with the nicest, most talented group of ladies that I know...Amanda hosted another fabulous shoebox swap, and we made some of the most beautiful Christmas/winter cards!! You've already seen the card that I took to the swap to share (if not scroll down- it's the post right under this one). Here are the cards we made yesterday...

(this is a little washed out by the flash- I couldn't scan it because of the 3-D ornament)
this was really fun to make!

what a FUN felt Christmas tree!!!

such an adorable image and fun holiday colors!!

now I MUST order this Christmas Collage stamp!
This is beautiful!

such an old-fashioned feel to this card!

isn't this seal just the cutest??

Rhonda- we missed you! This is one of my all-time
favorite Santa images!

this card just shouts Christmas!

Paula R.
makes me wish for snow (well, maybe not as much as we had last year, though!)

Paula L.
just a gorgeous card! (I DO love that Crumb Cake cardstock!)

Michelle G.
love the "bling" on the ornaments!

This next card is the one that Jane loving refers to as the "PITA" card.
It really wasn't as hard as it seemed, but it DID teach me to read directions and it was well worth the effort!!

Michelle D.
what a FUN card to do- the scan doesn't do it justice! :)

such a pretty wreath image!

the original sample had the image colored but I liked it uncolored giving it
a more vinage feel

my poor one bird looks like he crashed into the tree face first!
I do love this set!

simpliticity at it's best! The tree image is popped up on dimensionals.

Gloria never disappoints...great tree image!

the original sample had silver snowflake brads on the snowflake DSP panel.
Guess who forgot to put them on??? (LOVE that DSP!)

what a stunning card!! The Stickles on the ornaments doesn't show up
but it's just gorgeous in person!!!

It was an exhausting day but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Amanda makes her swaps SO fun!! She had a FABULOUS hat for those to wear if they forgot to put anything back into the box...I do believe that Angie really LIKED the hat!! We're all looking forward to the next swap after the new year...
