Two New Swaps!!!

Hi everyone. This Saturday, when I came home from a day of shopping, there was a notice on my door from the post office saying that they tried to deliver two packages, and I wasn't there to receive them, so I wasn't able to get them till today, but I did have an idea what they were. Sure enough, I was right, it was the two swaps that I was expecting.

The first one was an Easter egg ornament that Adrienne sent me for the Easter ornament swap at Lil Scrap Of Heaven. The second one was an altered Easter basket that was sent to me from Marisa. This swap was also through Lil Scrap of Heaven.

I made videos of what I got, so if you want to see everything, just click on the videos below.

Thank you so much Adrienne and Marisa. These swaps were a lot of fun...:-) Thanks to Cynthia also, for organizing these swaps for us!

CADB Card, The Best Teacher Ever

It's my turn once again to put in an entry to the Card A Day Blog, and this weeks theme is " Teacher Appreciation ". Here is my card, The Best Teacher Ever.

Making this card was pretty simple, and here is what I used to make it.
  • Die Cuts With a View, The Grade School Stack.
  • Red, white and green card stock.
  • Printer
I started off with a 5.5 x 4.25 white card for the base, then added a piece of 4 1/8 ' by 5 3/8 piece of the diamond patterned paper from the DCWV stack, then placed a strip of  5 3/8' by 2' piece of red card stock at the bottom of the card. My apples came from the apple patterned paper in that same stack. I cut out three different apples, and placed them across the red card stock, and then mixed up the stems, so each apple would have a different patterned stem. For my sentement, I typed out " The Best Teacher Ever! " on a piece of white card stock, and cut it down to  4 3/4" by 3/4'. I then placed that on a piece of 4 7/8 x 1' green card stock, and adhered it in the middle of the diamond patterned paper.

I hope you like my simple and quick card, and if you would like to leave me a comment and let me know what you think about it, I would surely appreciate it. Don't forget to enter our monthly challenge. We are offering a prize to the lucky winner.
