4 x 6 Camping/Grilling Recipe Swap

Another 8 x 8 Recipe Swap!

Cookie Swap

Here is a cookie recipe swap I made. First Recipe swap. Could be better but mind is a muddle right now on what I could have done.

Monthly Card Making Swap - July

Here is July Card of the Month -- Green with Glitter -- just used the swiss dots embossing folder, and some geometrical shapes from glitter paper using CM punches. Striped paper came from DCWV glitter pack.

More Addicted to Card Making - July

This is the card I made for Christmas in July. I smooshed the embossing folder (Snowflakes) and word of warning -- don't use Staz-On ink for this -- it doesn't come off the folder! LOL!

Then I used cuts from Christmas Cheer. Topped it all off with Glossy Accents and cheap-o glitter glue (I don't have my stickles yet!)

Addicted to Card Making Monthly Swap - August

Here is August 2008 card I made - Theme was Black & White

The silhouette picture is a font that I downloaded and cut on SCAL.
Paper is from DCWV Glitter Pak

Yay -- The First SS Gifts I have received ever!!!

I received the best gifts from SmallChange today. She is my SS on the School's Out SS Thread on the Cricut MB. Below is a Cobalt Blue (my favorit color) Fiesta Disk Pitcher. What is really odd is that I put on my SS survey that I LOVED Cobalt Blue, but made no mention of the fact that I collect Fiesta!!!!! Wierd, huh?

A Cobalt Blue Fiesta Relish Tray!

Penny also sent me several other items also and they are shown below and itemized here:

Antique Charm Collection

Repositionable AlphaBitties (these look like they were made with pieces of wood, which are perfect since we camp alot and I will be scrapping our camping adventures!)

Red, White & Blue Finishing accents with "America" beaded -- DH and I are both veterans and very patriotric to our country!

Self-Adhesive Accents - Teardrop Rain Dots in 2 Separate Colors -- I have never used these before. Can't wait to try them.

Package of Stitched Accents - these are cool also! I already have an idea for them....

Eyelets!!! Since I am just beginning to use these --this is awesome. Now I have a collection of colors to choose from!

Star Dust Stickles!!!!! Yay!!! A new color to add to my small collection!

3 -- Sets of Premade cards with matching envelopes. I can't wait to use these also!!!!

Thanks Penny!!! The Gifts are awesome and much appreciated!
