Purchase & Exchange Card

Hi Crafty Friends! So as I have mentioned before, Amber, Marci and I go once a month to a crafty night at my upline, Cindy Petersen's house. We make projects and order supplies and are obnoxious - ok, mostly I am obnoxious! - and get to have a nice girls night out. But we always have fun. We started a while back doing our purchase and exchange swap so that we always are trying to use the products we purchase. It has been a lot of fun and we have had some great results.

Here is the card that I made for this months:

Ok, don't you just love the chair stamp!

The supplies I ordered from Stampin' Up! were the stamp set with the chair, the pearls, and the lace ribbon. I didn't have any Stampin' Up! patterned paper that would fit the mood that I wanted to create, so I went with some My Mind's Eye paper. Then I couldn't decide what side I wanted to use the most, so I decided to do some of each instead :).

Here are the supplies used:

Cardstock - Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla Stampin' Up!
Patterned Paper - My Mind's Eye
Stamps - Stampin' Up!
Inks - Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight {my favorite new color!}, Wild Wasabi Stampin' Up!
Punches - Designer Label, Itty Bitty Flower, Scallop border, Large Oval, Scallop Oval Stampin' Up!; Small Corner Rounder EK Success
Ribbon - Lace Ribbon Stampin' Up!
Half Pearls - Stampin' Up!

These cards totally make me want a nice cup of tea! I wanted to write on the inside of them: Happiness is reading a good book on your favorite chair! Ok, so at least that is my happiness! :)

Cindy announced this last time at our crafty night that she is having her clubs start to do the Purchase and Exchange swap with each other! So look at what we started :). And we have been making Cindy our projects in the mean time too!

I am off to some friends for a birthday party! Maybe I will get my glass of wine after all! Hope you all are good and staying crafty!

Happy New Year!
