Card Swap

A few weeks ago my Aunt Sherrie stopped by for a morning full of stamping fun.  We got several things crossed off of her “stamping list.”  One of the things she wanted to make was a fun card for her granddaughter.  We looked at Pinterest and found a card similar to this one.  We used the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  Did you notice the Rhinestones on the pocket? I love the way this card turned out. While she was making a card for Haley, I made this one for the card swap we’ve been doing.  I sent my card to Georgia Burhite with a really long letter.  The most exciting part of the letter was telling about when Superman asked me to marry him when I was only 15.  (At least I think I put that in the letter.) Anyway, I received this beautiful card from Georgia with a lovely note.

Georgia’s card was made with the Petal Garden DSP, Beautiful You stamp set, Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Did you see how Georgia paper pieced the dress and hat?!  Thanks so much Georgia, I was thrilled to receive your card.  Not everyone in our card swap has had time to get their card in the mail.  If you haven’t received yours, please be patient.  We’ve had a couple people who’ve had more than their fair share of things happening in their life.  Things will calm down and they’ll have time to get a card made soon.

This summer is flying by.  I was supposed to do RAGBRAI for two days this week with Superman and his brothers. RAGBRAI is the bicycle ride across Iowa. Unfortunately I ended up in the ER last week and the injury kept me home.  I did ride my bike again for the first time this morning and it was good to be back in the saddle.
