Swap ATC's and Cards

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We spent our Easter at my Grandparent's house, eating ham and all of the trimmings...yummy! Today, I ran some errands and got around to making my cards for a swap that I joined. I realized that the due date was approaching quickly! I had never participated in swaps before and I had signed up for one. I told Sara about it, and next thing I knew I had signed up for 6! I think I went a bit crazy somewhere in there! They are sure fun, I just can't wait to get back all the other creations. This card was for the Cuttlebug/SU Card Swap, and I tried one of the new techniques I learned: brushed bleaching, ohhh I LOVE the results!

This card is one I created awhile ago, for a different swap. It was using the new Polka Dots and Paisley stamp set. My Mom had gotten it in December, but I hadn't used it before this, and I hadn't realized how cute the images are. As you probably know, I LOVE paisley, so it was a match!
This last creation is an ATC card, which I had never done before this. It was fun and quick, I think I convinced Anna to do the next meet-up group with the ATC theme, which I am excited for! They are so fun! The swap was anything flowers, so I used the new You Make Me Happy set. The ribbon is stamped with that sentiment, although it is a bit hard to see.
