Welcome to the 2016 November Card Swap! This will be our last swap of the year - due to the holidays! We will reconvene in January of 2017!
The challenge and theme for November was to make a card OR 3 gift tags with the theme of - "Christmas"! It was up to the crafter to determine whether to make a tag or card!! And as you will see, there are some very nice and elegant cards and tags!
We had eight participating this time! Margie, Pam, Sue, Angie, Maria, April, Meagan & Melissa.
Our hostess for this month was Pam Foster and (oh my!) it was a TREAT to meet at her house. The BEST food, fellowship and swaps we all enjoyed! Here are a couple of pics of Pam's home and our swapping group!
Here are the cards / tags this month:
Meagan (created BOTH 3 tags and a card!
This "Sip 'n Swap" group is so special! These ladies are so creative - in addition to that - it's their spirit - SO GLORIOUS - simple glorious!! The atmosphere just changes into something so special and warm when we are all together - very thankful for this time when we all meet!
Here is a link to the October card swap! We'll meet in January with Valentine themed cards. Be sure and check back - I'm sure there will be some awesome cards to view! Thanks for stopping by! Remember to hug the ones you love the most, until next time...
The challenge for our card swap this month was "Swapper's Choice"! To make a card - with any theme, any color, etc!
Also to share/ demo a "Tip, Technique or Tool" with the group! This group holds "a wealth of knowledge and talent" and this was SO GOOD to share ideas, techniques and lots of card making fun!
The swap was held at the CHS Media Center - where we could spread out and show off!! We indulged on Halloween cupcakes, Peanut/Candy Corn mix, Pumpkin Chex Mix and Pumpkin Ball Treats. It all was SO good!
This was a FUN swap to design and prepare for... enjoyed this swap. Learned SO MUCH!
We were SO EXCITED to have 2 special visitors attend our swap! Aren't they the sweetest?? We think so!
We had eight (8) lovely ladies swap this month. Hope you find some inspiration from these creations!
This blog is mainly about our family. Kyle will do a "hodge-podge" of items. Melissa will frequently post recipes, art projects, pics, card projects, articles ... and the boys...The "A Team" hmmm~ we shall see! Let us know what you think. We love to receive your comments and emails! (~:
Blogging is fun and is an outlet - I am just like you! My days are full of "to do's", morning till night. Sound familiar? When I DO find the time in the day, I love crafting - totally into paper-crafting at the moment (6 years!). That's why my blogs are often full of the projects that I'm working on. As a mom to 4 males(1 at-home son, 2 college sons and 1 husband), that time is often limited. I have been creating art items, cards, doo-das, painting, claying, anything "artsy-fartsy" ALL my life. Each one different from the last. It is something I truly enjoy.
You could even say it is a passion. Part of that passion has been sharing with others and attempting to teach them - hence my 2nd job of teaching Art in the high school and often my clubs and other groups that I'm involved in - it's just who I am. I am very lucky to be able to live in a small town and share! So! Please don't think that I'm a "kiss up" or trying to out-do someone else... I'm giving to give... I make things to give - it's just me!
