Okay, Wierdbunny, your stack of cards is in the mail! This swap was so motivating – it got me making cards that I normally wouldn’t thought of making. Above is a quick sampling of fabric, fusible webbing and zig zag stitching. And I am falling in love with charm packs – so many different coordinating fabrics to mix and match, but I’ll post some of those next week. The idea for the card below came from the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens. Just two pieces of coordinating paper – one torn to show the other. EASY PEASY! I got some handmade paper and tore away. At this time in my life, easy peasy is really nice, and this was made even easier with one of those deckle-tear rulers.

Thanks for all your swap etiquette help yesterday! Maybe someone should write a paper on this topic for all the newbie swappers out there. I elect the Painted Pear since she seems to have a lot of swap experience! Just kidding – did I scare you? :o)

    Those are fantastic and I feel “teased”. I need to get me one of those sampler fabric packs.

    No, no I don’t. I need to use what I have. YUP. Bad Pear, bad, bad pear.

    Anyway, don’t embarrass me. I am nobody, and have no useful advice….shame on you to advise the public otherwise. You knew what to do all along.

    Easy peasy turned out beautiful! Every time I see those Heather Ross fabrics, I promise myself some fat quarters.

    Super cute cards. I was wondering where you get your charm packs. I love the look of charm quilts but don’t want to buy a zillion different fabrics just to get a bunch of different little squares.

    I’ve connected with your creativity.
    I love the thoughts on hand me downs.

    I go thriftin’ about twice a week and have a closet full of wonderful clothes that are perfect and like new.
    Nice to meet you.

    gosh, your comments are sky rocketing!! Cool! I’m a little behind on my reading but I love your softie-too cute. I also really like the cards. I’ve never participated in a swap so I don’t know what I would do. D sounds like a good solution. As soon as I find time I’ll post about our new blog.

    Wonderful cards! I visited Cynthia at her new job today (a card/stationary store) and I drooled over the incredible papers and invitations. You would just love it and probably find inspiration for future projects.
