2018 August Card Swap - SYMPATHY






Our theme for the August's Card
Swap was "SYMPATHY"!  This theme is a traditional one because of the need for a sympathy card is common.  

Also, to get ready for the fall season - this month's challenge was a PHOTO challenge - use a selected photograph for the color scheme of the sympathy card.  Below is our selected photo.




     We met at the CHS Media Center to swap our month's swaps. Kept the decorations within the theme of the color scheme and served a "fall" snack mix!
 

  Here are the cards from August... enjoy!

Thanks for joining us and letting us share our card swap for August with you!  Here's a link to last month's swap  "Christmas in July" themed cards. 

     Next month's challenge is to create a card including a HARVEST FRUIT OR VEGETABLE!  



For the challenge, add a WATERCOLOR element to the card design!  This should be fun!  Be sure and check back for next month's swap!

     Hope you are enjoying the last days of summer!  Remember to hug the ones you love the most... until next time!

2018 July's Card Swap - Christmas in July




Our theme for the 2018 JULY'S Card Swap was "Christmas".  Our sweet swappers were to make a card and envelope that would be appropriate for a "Christmas in July" celebration!




The challenge was to design an UNTRADITIONAL Christmas card.   Leaving the "untraditional" to be defined by the swapper!  This was a twist that proved to have a FABULOUS outcome - just wait and see!

Angie hosted this month's swap in her home and - she was awarded the "Hostess with the Mostess" with such a Christmas in July FEAST!
OUTSTANDING, Ms. Angie...  Thank you again for hosting!








The CHRISTMAS theme is a fun way to get our minds off of the hot weather of the summer - was so excited to design and create for this swap.  We only had 5 swappers this month due to everyone's chaotic summer schedule.  Of course, these five ladies brought fabulous creations - you'll see how they shine with their creativeness below!
