Scrap to Treasure Swaps

A few weeks (months?) ago, a swapping page for OWH was started on FB. I am not a huge swapper since I have almost 10 times more than what I need of most things, but I have participated in two swaps when things sounded good or when I had something to share that someone else wanted. People always want to send something in return (which I understand), so even if I'm hoping to downsize some things, swaps won't make that happen.

Here, I am showing off some things that Karen G. sent me about a month ago. She sent me great Debbie Mumm Christmas papers and I used all of those up right away. They're pictured in a previous post. She also sent a pack of four cross embellishments and I knew I wanted to make this design, but I had to wait until I got the Swiss Dots folder. It was getting hard to find in stores, even at regular price, so when I had a coupon for AC Moore and it was in stock, I snatched the last one.

I apologize for this card's rotation. IPhoto has been giving me fits recently and I'm not motivated to upload the pic again to straighten it. Karen sent me the alphabet stamps. We'll be making 23 more of these at my card party on Friday night.
Next, I'll have to get cracking on the label die cuts that Laura S. sent me. They're beautiful, so I'm saving them for just the right card.

Can I ask you a favor? Please go vote for my card at Spotted Canary http://goo.gl/34Q6o. If I win, I'm going to donate the prize money to OWH. You need to be logged into FB and you may vote once a day until Sept. 7th. Tell your friends!!! Thanks so much!

Cards shipped to OWH (as of 8/2/11): 964
