Card Exchange and my Giveaway...


Good Monday morning and have a great day to those of you that are so lucky to have this day off!

I am participating in a monthly card exchange organized by Shirl at Creations by Shirl. She matches us up and we send a card and some "goody" just for the fun of it -- no contest or judging -- only the fun of sending and receiving a card :-) The first month was December with a theme of green and red. The picture that I took disappeared so I can't share. This month was to make a card that is "happy" and will make someone smile :-) I decided to use a digi stamp of a goofy, Boxer-like dog to make a New Year's card. Before I started a blog, I never kept track of where I bought my digis so I am not sure who made this one -- I am so sorry, I like to give appropriate credit :-( But, anyway, I thought he definitely makes you smile!!

I used a K & Co. paper pack of double sided paper because I thought the printed inside was fun. I colored the digi with color pencils -- I do not have any luck with pens -- I def need a course in using them! There is ribbon from my stash, some Stickles and pop dots for dimension. The clip is to decorate, but also can be taken off as part of the goody bag I included. This time I included several pieces of ribbon and fiber, various buttons, and a rhinestone star medallion. The sentiment inside was stamped from several different stamp sets -- Inkadinkado, Heidi Grace, and the words were from a set by Allysa at MyThoughtsExactly. I am learning to use stamps, too.

Hope the rest of your day is productive :-) I would love for you to visit the previous post to comment for a chance in the giveaway!
