M&M's swaps!

Hi everyone.   This is my second attempt at blogging tonight.  I had just about finished my post when I pushed the wrong button, and somehow managed to lose my whole post.  GRRRRR.   8-(      Anyway, we had a downline meeting this morning which was just great, thanks to the wonderful women who came along, and we swapped our girl cards.  What very talented women they are!   Thanks ladies for your swaps - I'm so impressed with them all, so hope you don't mind if I put them all on my blog to share with everyone. 

April swap M&Ms 001

Helen made this fantastic card with the Jumbo Spot On Wheel, the new scallop punch, and the two large circle punches.  Such a great layout - thanks so much Helen for the cool ideas!April swap M&Ms 002


Now, the talented Cherie (who by the way is now top of my good books, for having my Mason (she also has a son called Mason - that must have been confusing today) for the afternoon, and half the night!! Thanks so much) has made this very cool card with a difference.  Cherie altered an idea to work for her, and has decorated this beautifully with the small star punch, and the scallop punch around the neck.  Great idea Cherie!April swap M&Ms 003  This next cutie was made by Trudi  (click here for Trudi's blog).  What a fantastic card as well - (sorry about the photography Trudi!)  using Wild About You with a clear embossed elephant, and the narrow grosgrain ribbon, this card would be suitable for a boy or girl, with just a change of ribbon colour!  I'm sure this little elephant had a popped up ear when I got him - that must be somewhere in my handbag...April swap M&Ms 004

Last but certainly not least is Kim (click for Kim's blog).   Kim was so organised that she made her swaps last month, then we delayed our meeting, and Kim made a whole new lot.  That's dedication Kim!!  Kim also used our new scallop punch & large circle punches to create this fantastic card.  The oval & word window punches look great together with the words, and that baby face is just the cutest thing!! 

Ladies - I really do just love these cards, and am just blown away by your talents.  Thanks so much for being a part of our team - you are all just lovely!

Better go and get my Mason now before Cherie thinks he is staying for the week!

The ear hasn't fallen off. The embossed one's didn't have popped up ears. Sometimes I think my girls ears have fallen off though. lol
Have good weekend
