July SSS

Hello Friends!
Popping in to share my July Secret Sister Swap card.  For more details and to sign up for the September swap you have to stalk, I mean pop on over to Krista's blog.  Unfortunately the August sign-ups ended yesterday, but you can sign up for September when she sends out the post.

The theme for this swap was to use flowers.  My secret swap partner was the very sweet Jayne Converse.  For her card I decided to use one of the new Marci's from La-La Land Crafts, Marci with Flower.  You can purchase her as a deeply etched scroll-cut red rubber stamp or as a digi.

Marci with Flower (La-La Land Crafts)
 I think she is a cutie!  And so perfect for this swap.  I paired her up with papers from DCWV's Nana's Kitchen matstack.  I pulled the colors from there as well to color her up.  I am so bummed because I think I accidentally threw away the Copic colors I used.  Aiya!  If I find it I will update accordingly. Used two different flower punches with yellow and dark kraft cs.  The center of each flower as well as the scallop circle is Viva Decor pearl pen in cream.    I had some left over scraps from another project so I added it to the inside of the card.

I am happy to report that Jayne enjoyed the card and the RAK I sent with it.  Whew!  So glad.  I really can't wait for the next swap, I just got my partner details and I am so excited about it.  I always am.  hehe..  The August theme is anything goes.. Uh-oh, so many ideas going on in my head.  LOL!

Well I hope you come back tomorrow, I'm going to showcase my July C.A.T.S. swap featuring the awesome Brenda Ballesteros.  She totally blew me away!

Until then, have a wonderful Saturday afternoon!!
