Gulf Coast Paper Crafters' Shoebox Swap
I just arrived home from my weekend in Brazoria County stamping with my Gulf Coast Paper Crafter friends. Anita hosted her fabulous semi-annual shoebox swap and was, as usual, the perfect hostess!! Thank you, ladies for your truly inspired creations!! I had such fun visiting with you and stamping your awesome designs!! Thanks, too, for letting me share my bow tying strategies as well as my Kitchen Sink Stamps!
This is the graduation/encouragement card that I shared at the shoebox swap. Because I pre-made the lamps and pot plants as add-on embellishments, participants were able to complete the card in the10 minutes allowed. I truly hope the ladies each enjoyed making it!!
