Card kits anyone?!

Good morning! How is everyone today?! Doing well, I hope! :)

I spent most of yesterday working on a swap! I say one because I seem to be slower than molasses! LOL I intended to get several done, but this one took up all of my time! It is a really fun swap though, so it is ok! :) The rules are simple...6 girls to a group. One girl hosts each month! She sends out kits that allow each group member to make 6 cards and send them to everyone in the group! I received my first kit on Saturday and started right away! The kit included these adorable images and background paper and a lengthy piece of ribbon! I knew exactly what I wanted to do and when I tried it...it flopped! LOL I trashed that idea and started over! I punched and tied and stamped and cut and...it took forever! The background paper was a pretty shade of green and had hearts on it. I tried to incorporate all of those colors throughout the card! I think I like how they turned out! I am still deciding on that! LOL I do know that I LOVE the idea of a card kit! It makes you think outside of the box for sure!

I am considering hosting a swap myself for some scrapbook page kits! Thought that would be fun too! Anyhow, here are some pictures of the kit and the finished project! What do you think?! :)




When they open the image is cut away from the card so there is no top! I tried to make them interesting and a little different! They seem a little busy, but I think it works! Sorry about the dim lighting. It was rainy and gray outside so I tried taking these inside!

I have more to share and will be back later! Have a great day! :)
