Swap you!

I keep on forgetting to tell you about the monthly swaps that happen over at Scrapsidaisy...have you ever taken part in a swap? They are so much fun, especially if you love receiving surprises in the mail (and let's face it, who doesn't?)

Each month DT member Mel decides which goodies are to be swapped, and you decide month by month if you'd like to join in...I usually can't resist :)

Last month (June) we did a male card swap, since we all seem to have trouble creating cards for the boys in our lives. This is what I sent...

I Cuttlebugged the white cardstock with a gorgeous folder that I've had for ages (but had never used..ooops!) stamped the star with a stamp that I've had for ages (but had never you see a pattern here?) on a seperate piece and cut out, and did the same with the "happy birthday" sentiment on top of the star. I mounted that piece and some text paper from my offcuts bin on black cardstock, added some ribbon, and called it done!

I posted them off to Scrapsidaisy, and some time during the coming week I will get a lovely stash of various male cards in the post, all ready to use! How cool!

There is still time to put your name in for July's swap. This month we are swapping journal cards-either handmade, purchased, or a mixture of both. We did a journal card swap over 12 months ago, and I only have a couple handy to have such a great mixture in your stash!
Pop over to Scrapsidaisy if you'd like to join in!
