Shoebox Swap

This morning I went to a Splitcoast stampers shoebox swap get together for my area. It was a blast! I must admit morning is not my best time for stamping, and it definitely took me about an hour to wake up, but after that I was on a roll and having a ball getting to know Jacksonbelle and chatting with Rachel from Hope Stamps Eternal and the rest of the SWISS (Southwest Idaho Shoebox Swap) Gang. These girls are a hoot to hang out with! I always struggle coming up with my swap card - it has to be something that's relatively easy to mass produce, looks good, and takes less than 10 minutes to assemble. For once my stamping supplies smiled upon me and this swap card came together in a snap. I really love the way it turned out, and since I took the whole Happy Thoughts set, people could customize the sentiment they wanted to add to make the card their own. YAY!

What's in the Card:
Stamps: Happy Thoughts, Thankful Blossoms (Verve Visual)
Paper: Soft Sky & Close to Cocoa Prints, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Ink: Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip, Close to cocoa
Accessories: Nestabilities square dies, Quickie glue pen, glass bauble
