It is indeed Friday! I hope every one is enjoying the beginning of memorial day weekend. Our family does not have any special plans. I'm sure we'll enjoy the opening day of our community pool as well as hoping every one has a safe and happy holiday.
Today I didn't get much in the way of stamping done. I did however get a trip to Ikea and bought a console table for the basement hallway. It is painted white with a glass top, I put some of the last swaps I received under the glass along with some collected sea shells and stamps to display. On the most bottom shelf, I put a lighted plant some stamps and other 3D items to display. I'm just thrilled with my purchase!
I will be hosting a Vacation Theme swap. I will be setting up a poll and whom ever wins will get $25.00 in CASH. Yupper, you read that one right. So check my blog news of this and the details will be posted the week of June 1. If I only get one card it will win by default, so start planning get the ideas going and check back!
If you participated in any or all of the last set of swaps I am hosting, you will be getting a partial swap back in the mail this week. Please refer to the letter in the swaps to answer any of your questions.
I still have openings in the Black and White Swap. They are due in my hands June 6. Please email me if you are planning to play at email@example.com. Make 6 cards get 6 back, full cards, no fronts. You can use any stamps/embellishments/etc., please make sure it is more than one layer. Do your best work. Something you will be proud of! They need to be placed in a zip type baggie for protection and the envelope needs to contain a SASE with the same postage you mailed it with plus an extra stamp. If I don't use the stamp I'll return it to you. No stamp/no envelope -- no return of the swap.
Once again my pick for best blog is Angie's blog. This week she is offering a video tutorial on pocket cards. They are adorable. I can see this project being used for all kinds of things. She has a truly amazing gallery of video's and projects. I hope you will enjoy her stuff!
