Swaps are DONE!

Whelp, i went with the first one. Sorry, Claire. :) You're right, Kristin, it was more work that way but i decided i liked it better so it would be worth the extra work. Alison, the ribbon was a great idea too, but i didn't see your comment 'till today and i finished them up last night. I made 50 of them.

Good thing i got them done, because my Monday workshop got switched to Sunday, and i just found out we're having overnight guests on Saturday into Sunday. I'll be at Regionals all day Saturday, so that pretty much leaves tonight to get all the prep done for Sunday's workshop. So i'm pretty glad that i kept plugging away at it and finished the swaps last night.

In other cardmaking news, here's one i made last night (after the swaps were done) for a coworker who surprised me yesterday with a housewarming gift. It was after 10 and i was pretty wiped, so it's very simple, but i love how it came out:

I am LOVING that scallop punch. The projects i'm working on for Sunday also use it. The hostess requested the Flaky Friends set, and she also suggested that we make a bookmark card of some kind. I've been having fun with it. Once i finish it i'll post it for you all to see!

lovely! very simple simple. did you punch a hole in the designer series paper (DSP) or is that another layer of old olive in your scallop?

Thanks, ladies!

Alison, i punched a hole through the DSP and the scallop, in one shot. Although i did do a practice run with some's hard to get a hole in exactly the middle of that scallop! I think it would have been easier to just layer a circle of old olive on top of the scallop!
