These two cards were inspired by a shoebox swap I made at a recent demonstrator gathering. A shoebox swap differs from a standard swap in that you take all the supplies to make swaps in a box. You pass the boxes around and make the swaps to take home. Good fun!

A couple of weeks ago was our 12th wedding anniversary, so (naturally) I made my husband a card. My friend, Patrice, showed me how to make a Moving Circle card, so I was inspired to make one myself.

Yes, I know it is a bit late. This is a Valentine's card that I made using the Whimsical Words Sale-a-bration stamp set. It was made on time, but I didn't get it up here before 14 February. However, I hope you can be inspired by this card design, as the colours and sentiment can be easily changed to suit any occasion.

Yes it has been a while since I put something here because I have been so busy with Sale-a-bration and the Hamilton Extravaganza. So I will share with you why it has been busy.

SALE-A-BRATION

I was really pleased with the Black 'n' White Christmas card I made in December, so I re-made it as a birthday card. Stamping and cutting out the flowers, then adhering them onto cardstock and re-cutting takes time, but it is worth it for the effect.

You have seen this Upsy Daisy card before when I posted it early December...

I made this Tic Tac Toe set a while ago but didn't get around to putting it up here. This project uses the Candy Lane DSP and Priceless stamp set to alter a tin CD case into a classic travelling game. To make each peice magnetic I punched out 1" circles from plastic-coated advertising magnetics and stuck them on the back. So hold on to those 'throw-away' magnetic you get from Real Estate Agent/Banks/Insurance/etc... they come in handy!
