I wanted to share a card that I created for my monthly swap for July. I chose to make a 3 1/2 by 8 inch card from the new card book "Wishes" and had to make 10 of them. Each of us in the swap had to use the paper pack "Animal Cookies" to create our swap items from. SUPER CUTE!!! One of these days, I will share all of the swaps that I received in return for this one. I am so fortunate to be a part of such a creative unit!!
I LOVE the way this card turned out! I was not sure whether or not I would like the templates that are provided on a disk with the "Wishes" book, but it was MUCH easier than I thought to use!!! Not sure if I would ever make 10 of these at one time again, but certainly would consider it for just 1! LOL
I wish the detail of the stitching showed up better in these photos of the card, but I really liked the way it turned out! The close up is of the butterfly center in which I used 1/8 inch White Daisy ric rac. Who knew it would work for butterfly antennae!
If you would like to see the "Wishes" book or the "Animal Cookies" paper pack, check out my website at http://lovinscrappin.myctmh.com/ !
Stay tuned for my August club pages using "Animal Cookies" papers!! Can you say "Too Cute"?? The best part about the pages is there is not 1 stamp used on them! Well, maybe not the BEST part.....BUT the My Stickease that matches the paper pack are just to die for!!
Hope this inspired!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Another Card to Share!!
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
