My Last Swap...

I made this Santa back in September for a swap hosted by Corie, one of the nicest & most thoughtful bloggers out there! You can see the rest of the cards from Corie's swap here, they all used sets from SU's Holiday Mini. The reason I titled this post "My Last Swap" is because I have officially sworn off swaps!! This is by no means a reflection on Corie or her swap, she was a fabulous hostess and all the ladies created gorgeous cards to share. I just happen to SUCK at swapping!!! I am always determined to finish early but without fail procrastinate until the very last minute (for this swap, I even emailed Corie and told her I'd be mailing them early, how embarrassing!). It always turns into a stressful ordeal for me. And this particular swap I messed up big time! Corie had specified we use SU products only!! See if you can count how many non-SU products are on this card! Let's see... Prismacolors, gamsol, Patina Stickles, Liquid Applique, black glaze pen, scallop scissors, Michael's ribbon, Cuttlebug... oh and the sentiment is from a RETIRED SU set, not a current set! Geesh!! I realized what I had done shortly before the swaps were due and emailed a confession to Corie - being the sweetheart that she is, she sent a super kind email back and told me to mail them in anyway! I so appreciated that. At any rate... I did like how this card turned out, but boy did I break the rules!!! So, no more swaps for me - maybe I'll follow rules better once the preggo-brain goes away (I am severely afflicted with it at the moment!), but I'm sure I'll still be a procrastinator. So if you see me signing up for one of your swaps (because I can rarely resist signing up, even though I know I have this affliction!) you may just want to send a note and REJECT ME!! :-)


  1. Oh, I just love this card! And I looked at the other cards, and I think I detect a couple other Cuttlebug users in there! You did a great job.

  2. Your card is sooooo adorable, I bet nobody minded the use of the other products! I love everything you've done to your awesome card, Libby!

  3. Oh, I'm totally with you on the swaps. lol
    I love this card tho!

  4. Libby, glad to see you are back and doing well. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this card. When it popped up on the screen I actually said, "WOW" it is adorable, I am in love with the colors and the layout. Following the rules or's great!

  5. Wow, this card is super cute, Libby! Looks like a ton of detail for a swap card. I'll bet everyone LOVES to swap with you and they'll be sad to hear you've sworn off. I'm with you there, though. For a lot of reasons I don't do swaps anymore. BTW, I just want you to know (again) how much I love reading your posts. You're too funny and very entertaining! Thanks!!

  6. I didn't mind it at all - in fact, I have your swap card out on my shelf so I can look at it for inspiration!

  7. Love this! It's just too stinking cute!

  8. I love love love this card. The colours are out of this world and your details are scrumptious! :0) Mel
