Card Swap Pics

The cards from the card swap were awesome.  I'm afraid my scanner doesn't do them justice.  Thanks to all the participants.  This time I remembered not to give any of the cards away, before I scanned them.

Beautiful ivory card with coral shading by Lynette
Classy, sparkly, gold embossed card by Trish.  Also, Trish included an optional salutation for the inside of the card.  Good idea.
Shelley shaded perfectly the sunset on this tropical and warm feeling card.  I love the charm attached to the braided cord.  Fabulous.
 This is a very cheery get well card.  The colours are warm and the design is eye pleasing.  I'm afraid I don't have any information who did this card.  You did a really nice job.
I remember choosing this yellow card over the same card in green.  Both were awesome cards.  The little beveled flower centers are very cool.  Awesome card.  Oh no!  I also don't have any information on who did this card.  I like the fact that this card maker included two optional sayings for the inside of the card.  I am loving this idea.

Barb did really nice work on this versatile card.  The cameo is such a nice accent.  Sweet.

Linda used chalks to colour this dainty little card (and the envelope).  I really like the fact that she used two different embossing folders on the front of this card.  Great idea Linda.

Laural made this bright Hawaiian looking card using stamps and dies from Local King Rubber Stamps which was one of our gracious contributors for Sailing with Scissors.  Here is their link:
Laural, you made a really cool looking card.

Ruth used red mirror paper for the Christmas tree and white pearl-like cardstock for the background paper.  Very stunning card.  The die that Ruth used for the tree was from Dee's Distinctively Dies who was also a generous contributor to our group.  Here is the site to see Dee's very cool dies:

Cathy incorporated her First Nations culture in this stunning encouragement card.  The inside of the card is stamped with a thoughtful Apache blessing stamp.  Awesome card, Cathy.

This soothing and pretty card has the coolest navy doily frame.  I'm afraid this is another card that didn't have a name.  You made a really nice card.
 Roberta made this cute and whimsical card.  The little hula girl is super cute.

Annette made this detailed and funny card.  The background is warm and mottled with many colours.  Very cool technique.  This card will put a smile on the face of whoever receives it.

Joan also used Dee's Distinctively die to make this classy Christmas card.  The black off-center die cut really  makes this awesome tree three dimentional.  Very nice Joan.

I'm afraid my scanner couldn't scan the front of Ken's cool looking sympathy card.  The card's background was airy with light blue and white clouds.  The forefront of the card is a stamped bison, embossed in white.  The inside of the card is also cool.  The Hopi prayer is very thoughtful.

This elegant card is made by our new cardmaking friend Kay.  Her use of different black and white papers on the card was well designed.

This is my card.  My favourite part of this card is the little butterfly which is supposed to be used in flower arrangements.

Gayle H. made this soothing and pretty card.  Notice the little smile she drew on the button, in the center of the flower.  What a cute idea.

Last but not least, Karen made this avante-gard card with many cool elements that really work well together.  Very unique Karen.
