Sorry about that!! I uploaded these pictures and instead of hitting save I hit publish so you all saw a post with just pictures on it and then I had to delete it. Sometimes doing multiple things at once does not pay off!!
I have mentioned before that I do a monthly card swap with my team members. I create a sign up database in our Yahoo Group, give them a deadline to sign up and then a due date for the cards. We make a card for each person that signs up. We do make full cards so that the hobby demonstrators can participate too, they love having ready made cards to use in everyday life.
I do ask for ladies to sign up as our Card Swap Hostess and what they get to do is pick the theme for that month. Last month our Card Swap Hostess was Denise Schnarr and she wanted us to make Get Well Cards. I just love seeing what my team members come up with!!
For my card I used Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler & Whisper White Card Stock, Natural Hemp Twine, Perfectly Penned Stamp Set, 2 1/2" Circle & 1 3/4" Circle Punches and my Big Shot with the Chevron Embossing Folder & Floral Frames Framelits.
I do allow my team members to use anything, even if it is retired, as long as it is Stampin' Up! products. This helps with the hobby demonstrators too. They can use what supplies they have on hand, get great ideas and are able to use the cards. It is a win win for everyone!!
Have a great day and keep cool!! We are experiencing 105+ weather here in Southern Indiana with no sight of rain anytime soon. And I wanted to send out my prayers to everyone that is being effected by the fires in Colorado. My heart is breaking for you all right now and am doing my best to pray for safety and rain!!
