Jo-Ann's card for the Card Swap

Jo-Ann made this rustic and dimensional card.  The elements of this card are fabulous.  I love the netting with hints of glitter, the whimsical hat pin and the dew drop on this card.  It makes for a really cool card.  Great job Jo-Ann.

Elizabeth's card for the Card Swap

Elizabeth made this pretty card.  The minimalist design adds to the boldness and artistic design of the card.  The hot pink, black and cream colours are a pleasing combination.  Great job Elizabeth.

Ruth's card for the Card Swap

Ruth made this elegant shimmery card.  What a luxurious reindeer surrounded by a frame of falling snowflakes.  The gem embellishments add to the high-end look of this card.  Awesome card Ruth.

Annette's card for the Card Swap

Annette created this light and airy card.  Annette used her design-know how to create the "thank you" word die cut on her Silhouette machine.  The frame and wording look beautifully fluid against the pastel background.  Great card Annette.

Donna's card for the Card Swap

Donna made this Dresden Plate quilt design card.  Donna's first crafting love is quilting.  Therefore it is no surprise that she incorporated this love with her new found craft of cardmaking.  Donna used her Scan N Cut to cut out the elements of this unique card.  Very sweet card Donna.

Barb P's card for the Card Swap

Barb made this delicate multi-paneled screen card.  The punched border, colourful panels give this card an exotic look reminiscent of the Orient.  Incredible card Barb.

Karen's card for the Card Swap

Karen made this hip Zentangle style card.  The doodling in the flowing dress stamp is so uber cool.  What a very cool card.  I received this card signed by all our Sailing with Scissors members with a thoughtful gift.  What a wonderful bunch of people.  This card has a special place in my craft room!  Great card Karen.

Suzanne's card for the Card Swap

Suzanne made this sultry tropical scene card.  The palm trees shadowed in the twilight moon is gorgeous.  The layering gives this card tremendous depth.  Beautiful card Suzanne.

Pauline's card for the Card Swap

Pauline made this cool digital card.  I love the bright colours, cheery elements and journaling details on the inside of the card.  The reference to the cruise and our group makes this card really special.  In addition, Pauline had broken her dominant arm prior to making her awesome card for the swap.  Wow Pauline - you're a trooper!  

Mary Jo's card for the Card Swap

Mary Jo made this dainty card.  I like Mary Jo's use of a script stamp for the background.  It is a pretty alternative to decorative paper.  I will definitely make a mental note of this technique.  The ribbon turns the flowers into a Spring time bouquet.  Very lovely card Mary Jo.

Angie's card for the Card Swap

Angie made this cute card.  Angie made her cards using different decorative papers and embellishments but kept the style of card uniform for the swap.  The style is clean and new with the lifted corner.  What a great idea.  I love this snowman card with the wooden snowflake circle.  Great work Angie

Jessie's card for the Card Swap

Jessie made this resist technique card.  The coral and green in the background really make the white embossing stand out.  The colours are cheery and the overall look of this card is beautiful.  Irresistible card Jessie.

Linda P's card for the Card Swap

Linda made this collage flower card.  The flower petals are shaded with lots of depth.  The card has a European feel to it.  I love the glittery butterfly accent.  Magnifique Linda!

Barb's card for the Card Swap

Barb created this classy dimensional card.  The cream layers and gold accents of this card make it pop off the page.  Beautiful card Barb.

Leslie's card for the Card Swap

Leslie made this beautiful card which looks like a variation of the tri-shutter card.  The shimmery paper, the focal butterfly, the scrumptious decorative paper all add up to a gorgeous card.  Great job Leslie.

Celina's card for the Card Swap

Here is my card for the swap.  It is a gift card holder card which doesn't require additional postage when mailing.  The cute little tree stamp was a Christmas present from my dear friend Karen, last year.  Adhering all the sequins to the cards was a bit of a pain, to say the least.  I'm still finding sequins in the carpeting.  Ha ha.

Michelle's card for Card Swap

Michelle made this adorable multi-layer cake card.  What a really cute and original style of card.  It has lots of room for a sentiment as well as a personal message.  Very yummy looking card Michelle.

Darlene's card for Card Swap

Darlene made this incredible Stampscapes card.  Stampscape cards can be challenging because you must stamp all the different element stamps on the cardstock perfectly or one of these elements can look out of place.  Darlene definitely has mastered this technique because the card is beautiful.  Nice job Darlene.

Gayle's card for the Card Swap

Gayle made this adorable card.  She made this card in different colours for the swap.  She put lots of time putting together all the little die cut pieces.  I love the inside sentiment.  Very cute card Gayle!

Charlene's card for the Card Swap

Charlene made this cute purse card that matches Diane's card.  The inside detail of the card as well as it's design really makes the card pop.  Very nice card Charlene.

Diane's card for the Card Swap

Diane made this cool card of a framed Victorian shoe.  The colours she chose were warm and cozy.  Notice the detail in her colouring.  Great job Diane.

Cheryl's card for the Card Swap

Cheryl made this really cute snowman card.  He came in his own little red bag.  This was my little one's favourite. She keeps it in her little purse.  This was a really cute card Cheryl.

Debbie's card for the Card Swap

Debbie made this really incredible easel card.  It has a vintage feel to it.  Beautiful card Debbie!
