Judy's Shoebox Swap

Yesterday Judy, Karen, Pamela and myself had our 2nd "Shoebox Card Swap"! Judy hosted at her place in Lynn. (Yes, the Lynn song is going thru my head!) Pamela's GPS was nice enough to show us the way and as usual, we had a great time together and ate way too much! Judy made an amazing chicken soup, cranberry cake & chocolate oreo truffles! Pamela (thanks goodness!) made a yummy salad. Here's a pic of us when we were done. Judy's sister lives in the house next door so she took our picture out of her window so it's a little blurry...

Here are the cards we made close up...

Karen's card is a folding technique which took me forever to do with all the folding and stamping and coloring in but it was worth it! I made 2 of them. The papers, stamps, ribbon, brads & water color pencils were all Stampin' Up!

Pamela's card was this adorable birthday card using a Stampin' Up! set she had never used before. Way to use ur stash Pamela! I also made 2 cards but they were the same. The coloring was done with Copic Markers.

Judy's creation was this birthday card. Elements were cut on her Cricut machine. Piecing it together was fun and it was great how we all pieced it a little different!

For my second card at Judy's station, I decided to use this adorable stamp she had! OMG, I love how it came out. I used Pamela's Copic Markers to color it in. Color choices were based on the paper colors Judy gave us.

Here's my card. I worked all week so I had little time to really design something so I made this simple "Holiday Thank You". If you have seen my blog at all, I've used this stamp before and apparently I like it alot. It uses an embossing technique and copic markers.

Hmm... could it be something that starts with "Lynn, Lynn, city of sin..." ?? ;)
