Card Exchange Group: January 09

Here are the cards I made for the Card Exchange Group that I participate in once a month. It is sponsored by a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and we have a BLAST! We have 8 ladies on our group. We usually have 10 but two had to drop out due to personal reasons. Anyway, we have a minimum ($25) that we have to spend in order for us to reach the level that someone gets the hostess gifts. Then we take turns being the host! (My problem is that I don't spend $25.... it's usually MORE! LOL! I have to be careful and not spend too much!) So at the group meeting the demonstrator, Sue Brown, makes 4 cards or other fun things and then the host for that night gets to keep them. Meanwhile we are learning new, fun ways to use the stamps and other supplies. After the demonstration we have a make-'n-take. Sue has the papers pre-cut and then shows us how to make the project. Then of course we have tons of fun making it. After that we exchange our cards and tell what we did on each card. We each have made at least 8 cards that are the same and we pass them around and everyone gets to take one.

Here's the pictures of the last two cards that I made for the card exchange. I was behind so I gave out two cards. The Christmas card was one I had started in November but hadn't finished before our meeting. I had forgotten that we don't meet in December. The girls all encouraged me to finish them and just bring them in January - so I did!

Here's the card that I made for January. I had a lot of fun making it and then of course I had to make more! I ended up making 12 cards. I like to make extra to give to my mom.

LOTS of snowflakes in this bunch! I don't get snow here in Southern AZ so I have to make cards in order to have fun in the snow! hehe!

I hope to blog more often. It's late so I won't give all the details of what I used for the cards but if I get a chance later, I'll do it. I LOVE PUNCHES!!! I have quite a few of SU's and Martha Stewart's punches. I have ALL of CM's punches. I guess you could say I'm quite "punchy. **duhh** LOL

Thanks for stoppping by!

They are lovely, I especially like the Christmas tree set. That Christmas tree stamp is gorgeous. I hope you don't mind me saying but I couldn't help but notice what looks like luggage in the corner. The lady in the black hat is beautiful, I wish that was a stamp! LOL. I’ve left a little mark of my respect for you on my blog. Hope you like it :)
Take care & keep smiling
