Today is my "cleaning" day (ugh!), but I am taking a break and thought I would share my swap card I did for this month's RubberQueen meeting.  I am so mad because I forgot to take my camera to take pictures and really don't have time to do it now, as I need to get my cleaning done.  This is a typical day-before class chore.  If it wasn't for my classes, my house would never get a thorough cleaning.  Sometimes I think that is the only reason I keep on having them -- but that really isn't true as I would miss seeing my friends and the fun we have.  I must say, I do have a really fun group, and I always think of it as a girls' get together.  The first half-hour we don't get much done as it is catch up time on what is going on in their life, then we get busy and try to stay focused (which is really hard for all of us).

Anyway here is my swap card -- truly nothing fancy.  My goal was to create a card that didn't require "accessories," but at the last moment; I had to add a little shimmer with my new Baja Breeze Glass Glitter.  It really doesn't show up much in this picture, but it is there.

Wow, what happened to my colors???  The card base is Very Vanilla card stock with a layer of Baja Breeze, then a layer of Rose Red card stock that was embossed with the "Vintage Wallpaper" folder that I inked with Crumb Cake on the debossed side.  I stamped my image on Very Vanilla card stock and cut with the new "Clearlits Scallop Rectangle" die.  For the life of me, I cannot remember what mini I bought that from, but I love it because you can see through the glass to position your image.
Okay, I need to get going so I can get the studio cleaned and set up for card class tomorrow.  I have some awesome cards for them, ALL OF THEM CASEd from the RubberQueens!!  Stop back so you can see what you miss by not attending meetings and events.  Have a wonderful weekend!!

  1. Great card. I was wondering what the colors were that you used.LOL No knew it was the camera that screwed up the color. You talk about cleaning- well we watched the girls yesterday and today (only til noon today). Have fun tomorrow with your group. Can't wait to see what you picked to case. TTYL

  2. Another winner here Sandi and of course using stuff that I do not to get those order in fast!!!!! No, this is my kind of card can you believe it, it is simple but yet has that WOW. I like your color choices, will have to give it a try to see what the colors look like for real.
