Monthly Swap Card

Hope everyone is having a terrific Friday. It is gloomy and stormy here. I just had to run something out to the mailbox and got completely soaked during the 10 seconds it took me to get there and back. A great day to stay in and stamp!

For over a year I participated in a monthly swap with a fantastic group of ladies. This past November I had to drop out due to several reasons but I still keep in touch with our tight little group. They asked if I would be interested in joining in for a month sorta as a "guest stamper" and I was thrilled to take a spot in May. I've known about this for over 3 months and now that they are due in less than a week, I finally got around to making them. The May theme was "use patterned paper". This was easy for me since it seems like I use patterned paper on every card I make nowadays. I chose the dp first and of coarse went straight to my handy dandy SAMS club pack. I love the flower pattern on this orange paper so it was an easy choice (especially since I had some orange Primas that matched perfectly). I used my old SU color coach to pick the coordinating colors (Barely Banana and Ballet Blue). The stamp I used is a wood mounted stamp that I bought at Hobby Lobby and then remounted in on EZ mount. Because of this I have no idea who the manufacturer is (sorry about that). I also used SU Linen and French Script. The pearls are from the $1 spot at Target.
I got tons of Happy Mail this week so tomorrow I will be highlighting several great stampers who showed me some love! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
