"Friday's shoe Box Swap Cards"


Friday night My friend Carrie and I went to our friend Jamie's house to do a shoe box swap. It was sooooo fun and she has a real cute apartment. We had pizza, salad and apple pie. Lots of talking and we made cute cards. These are the two cards that Jamie came up with. This first one is with the Ronald McDonald stamp set Say It With Scallops. I like that she picked one elegant card and one cutsie card.

I know I am not the only one who thinks that sock monkey's are creepy. LOL I do like the card and the sock monkey doesn't freak me out as much as the real thing. We colored the image with the real color pencils. I hadn't used them before and I really liked them. Very cool. We colored the chipboard square with the ink pad and dyed the flower from the pretties kit with the pink pirouette ink pad. Thanks Jamie for hosting the get together. I had a great time and can't wait to do it again.
