Kadie's Swap

My friend Kadie and I are doing a private swap together - (no peeking Kadie!)

6 different Thank you cards
3 different Wedding/Marriage/Anniversary -
4 different Thinking of you
2 Different Birthday cards (for kids)

She went to a scrapbook retreat over the weekend and made a TON of stuff - waiting for her to share her pictures with me! I'm so jealous though - she made a TON of stuff out there -

She came home Sunday and cleaned out her craft room and made all the cards for our swap and put them in the mail already - AHHHH! Talk about pressure!
Ok So I'm not done yet but I got a good start today - takes me alittle longer since Collin (now 3 months) is not sleeping all day anymore - but I tried -

Ok here they are -

First one I actually made Saturday - It's my first try at the Tri-fold card - Thanks so much Beate for the step by step instructions - I hate cards that I have to score on - but this one is too pretty to not even try :)
I used a Stamp from Michaels

Next is this pretty one I CASED from franz - I used my Circut for the flowers and the Sincer Salutions (I can't spell - sorry) for the Thanks so much - and a ribbon I got from Walmart by the yard that I had laying around - The dots on the ribbon are pink to match - but for some reason in the photo they look blue - but they're really pink I promise :)

This next one (wedding) I CASED from (looking it up :) reneejul1
I LOVED her card - Now that I looked her up I'm seeing that I didn't do EXACTLY how she did it - but I got the idea from her
I used the cuttle bug to emboss it - then used the silver ink pad over it to add the color - I printed up the text with my computer and used pop dots to pop it out - used the cuzzle to cut out the squares and... oh a sheer ribbon I had laying around :)

Here is a Happy Birthday one that I made - everyone is using the cuttlebugs for cards now so I don't really know who I got this idea from - but I used a white ink spot over it so you could see the embossing a little better :)

Here is another Happy Birthday one -
Used the (I'm in a hurry and Can't remember the name of the stamp set - will add it in later) You can't see it but I used versemax ink on the stamp and used it for a background on the cover

And Finally my last Thank you card -
Using a dollar store Thank you Stamp - just cut out a hole in the middle with my cuzzle and put the tag - I put little hearts around the outside of the card to kind of match the heart brad I put on the thank you tag :)

And That's ALL I had time to make today :)
hoping tomorrow will be a better crafting day for me - I didn't get a lot of sleep last night - Cody had a bad dream and for 3 hours wouldn't stop coming in my room!! I finally caved and let him in my bed but ugh! So I took a little nap this morning before Christina and Cody woke up - just after Casey and Samantha went to school - Whew - Cut into my crafting time but much needed :)

Anyways - Cory's on his way home , I need to clean the house, get dinner started and finish helping the girls clean their rooms so we can paint their shelves TONIGHT! AHHHHH

Thanks for looking!
