Another SCS Card Swap

I mailed off the last SCS card swap I had to do. Actually it was a card kit. It had a long list of components to the kit. I hope I got most of them. I made up a sample, took a picture of it, made copies of the picture and included it in the kit.

I'm not sure if I am happy with the card. It is really not my style of cards. I think this is maybe the last SCS card swap I will do. I did 4 SCS card swaps, 1 for A Muse and then an image swap for a small stamp company in Pennsylvania. By the time you get everything put together and mailed, a lot of time is involved and then there's the expense of mailing them. You have to include a stamped return envelope with it too. The one I mailed today cost me over $5 in postage. That doesn't seem like a lot, however, if you're doing several, the postage adds up after awhile. They are fun. Now I just have to sit back and wait for the cards that will be mailed to me.

Here's a link to the card.

Facebook Link

I tried the link and it works. However, I had to copy and paste the link into my browser. Hope it works for you. :))

SCS & A Muse Card Swaps

I uploaded some pictures of cards that I have made for different card swaps I found on Splitcoaststampers and also one I did for A Muse Art Stamps. Since Blogger is not cooperating with me in uploading my pictures onto my blog, I am sending you that read my blog, a link from Facebook to view them.

I am hoping this works. If this works then I will do the same for the cards we made at our August 29th Shoebox swap.

Card Swap on Saturday, August 29th

I fully intended to have the pictures of the cards we made on my blog. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, I still can't upload pictures without them being distorted. I am so frustrated!! I don't know why I can't do that. Everything worked fine while I uploaded pictures to my other blog while we were on vacation. And then after we got home, I started having problems.

Well, about our card swap. There were 16 ladies altogether. We had 3 ladies drive in from Oroville, 1 lady came from Vacaville, 1 from Galt and 1 from Woodland. There were 3 from the Elk Grove area.

We had a holiday theme and some really awesome cards were made. The first prize went to Alex from Oroville with a Halloween card. Second prize went to Joyce from Elk Grove with a Halloween card and third prize went to Kelly from Chico with a cute Christmas card. I will put the pictures on Facebook, you can friend me if you care to look at the cards. Then there were 4 honorable mentions, 1 to Candice from Rancho Cordova for a Thanksgiving card, 1 to Jenni from Vacaville for a birthday card, 1 to Jo from Elk Grove with a very elegant Christmas card and the last honorable mention to Karen with a fun Halloween card.

Our potluck was so good. We had 2 long tables put together and it was overflowing with hot dishes, salads and desserts. Our next get together is October 24th. The theme hasn't been decided on yet, people are to vote on several options.

There was a boo boo or two that occurred, however, we didn't let them bother us and had a fantastic day. I was absolutely done in by the time I got home. It took me a couple of days to get things put away, I still have baskets that need to be put away in my clothes closet. I will evidently get it all put away. :))

Again, to see the pictures, friend me over on FB.
