Swaps are DONE!

Thank you everyone for the feedback on the swap card! Your blog candy packages are in the mail today. I decided to use Joan's suggestion of sponging around the card - thanks, Joan! And Marge's suggestion to stamp the leaf on the paper and cork separately, then just match them up. The swap guidelines say to "use layers", but I think it looks just fine as is, and I know I was intimidated by the 20-lb cards when I first started stamping. Thanks again for the help!!! You gals are the best! And now, without further ado, I give you the Holiday Mini Catalog Swap card....

And now for something a little different... This past weekend, my neighborhood had its annual block party, for which I am a committee member. Everyone wears name tags because we really just don't know everyone, but every year I make "special" name tags for the committee members. I used the drink from Chillax by Taylored Expressions that best suited the committee member, and of course, mine had the coffee one. They nearly squealed with joy at them. Yeah me! Here is this year's tag...
