Card Swap

After working 9 hours of overtime.... I hit a wall
I knew I needed to come home and create 5 fabulous handmade cards
for a swap with the girls....

I also have made a resolution to not buy any new product in the month of June
I sat in the studio trying to put together different patterns for the card....
Frustrated I grabbed my purse and headed to Joann's

After wandering the aisles for a while 
I Walked out!!!
That's right, I left without buying anything!

I came home and made this wonderful card

The ice cream cone digi stamp I got from wings and willows (a super blog... check it out...)
I colored it with my copic's and prismacolor markers,
The red paper I made using some fun stamps I embossed onto plain white 
and then I used my "barn door" distress ink to make it the pretty red...
Both the polka dot and red paper is sewn on the edges using... that's right, my sewing machine! 

Then I had to add some pretties to the envelopes
And the flap side
On the inside of the card I stamped "thinking of you" from the stamp set I won from denami 
Voila!  I'm excited to give them away, and to get some fun cards in return.
Thanks for stopping by!  It's great to see you today!!
