Shoebox Swap Cards from our Christmas Party!

This was Kelly Birrell's card we made and I have to say it was my favorite. Although I don't think I'll be demonstrating it at a workshop (it took forever to make) it was a great card! And I hate birds!!! Right, Kelly?
This was Tonya Steber"s card. I love the color combo! I need to use this set more often.

Lori Smith's card. Love everything about this one. I wish I had got my vines more even at the bottom, but maybe next time.

Amanda Shaffer's card. Great card and I love the black background, it really makes it POP!

Teri Herman's card. Another great card. I love how the sponged Close To Cocoa made the Certanily Celery looked aged. This is another one I'll have to remake. I didn't get my flowers stamped deep enough. May have to repost this one later after I redo mine.

Darla Cummin's card. I love everything about this one too. Love the color combo and the DSP from the Winter Mini. Who would have thought about using it!

Brenda Dellinger's card. Another pretty card. Love the color combo and how she used part of the petals to make the leaves!

This is mine. I love how the ribbon is done on this one. Have to say I got my idea from this talented lady on SCS here:
I love her card!

Tiffany Bauer's card. Another great card. Love the paper and the fold on this one.

Teresa Simpson's card. Beautiful card, I just can't get enough of this set! A nice winter card.

Leona Gher. A great card with a unique fold. Love the color combo and everything else about this one!

Inside of Leona's card.
So that's all of them. We had so much fun at Darla's making all these great cards. I am so glad I am in a group of very talented ladies! It was great to get togther with all of them! Can't wait till our next meeting!!!

WOW! That was a great shoebox swap! What a talented group!

Stephanie said...

great swaps! The first card is impressive - and I would agree that it is not a workshop card! the person who receives it would have to know that they are truly special!!

I love shoebox swaps, and all of these cards are so pretty. Great job to your group!
