♥ card kit swap cards ♥

good afternoon.  over at My Scrapbook Nook  the dt and members host a "card kit swap".  members/dt sign up in a thread to participate, a list of partners is established, we exchange addresses and ship a card kit created from your supplies for your swap partner (the card kit must include enough supplies to create at least one card minus cardstock.  you can add more supplies if you like, but it is not meant to be an expensive swap).  your swap partner then takes a pic of the kit and creates at least one card and posts the card/kit picture in the "card kit swap" thread.  it's really, really fun and i wish we could do these every month.

here is the current CARD KIT SWAP thread with the various kits and cards being created

it's fun to peruse the thread, there's tons of inspiration and lots of fun kits.

i received and sent two card kits this time around (odd-number of friends participating and since i coordinate these, i was happy to be able to create more than one kit and create with the gorgeous kits i received from marinette and pam

i am really excited to share a couple of those cards here because the kits were a LOT of fun
(i'll be back tomorrow to share a couple of cards created from pam's kit)

 miss you card


every cloud has a silver lining card
(there are TWO of the stamps on this card, the sentiment and the "label" clear stamp.  i used the label stamp to create the background because it kinda felt like airy clouds when paired with the chipboard clouds)
