I have had the pleasure of making quite a few good friends through this crafting hobby of mine. Way back in 2008 (I think?) I met these two women on a scrapbooking message board...Beth and Joni. I had the pleasure of meeting Beth and her whole family in 2009 and 2010 when they were in Southern California for spring break. And I almost had the pleasure of meeting Joni, who is a fellow runner, at a half marathon race in Southern California but I was stuck in the bathroom line (nice, huh?!). I met Diane through Beth, and she is quite the amazing paper crafter as well. It's really so much fun meeting these talented and creative women from all over the country!
Beth suggested we start a card making swap/exchange. I'm not sure we have an official name for it yet. But each month, one of us sends the other 3 a kit to make a card. You can send any supplies and the recipients have to use at least 4 things from the kit. This month Beth sent us some fabulous Valentine's Day themed goodies in our card kit. Everything was so great that this card literally took me about 10 minutes to create.
Isn't it all pretty!!! She sent some My Mind's Eye papers, felt hearts, punched heart borders, beautiful pink lace, pearls, and some super fun clay hearts her daughter made!! Aren't the clay hearts so sparkly and pretty?
She also stamped a bunch of sentiments that would work with the theme, I chose this simple Love Ya sentiment.
I can't wait to check out the other girl's blogs to see what they created using the same supplies. I am so thankful for these scrappy online friends! If you want to check out their creations, go to their blogs:
Thanks for stopping by today, friends!
