This was a fun kit to play with and I hope I did OK.   I also hope that Jeanette likes my card.

Traveling with my Friends!


Here are my cards for the March mystery image swap.  This is the first of two dual months--where we get two images to create cards with.  My good friends Kelly and Jeanette provided the images this time and even coordinated a theme for the month--Travel.  They both love to travel and both have seen some incredible sites in their trips--and I am sure will have more awesome ones in the future.

I too love to travel and we have three trips planned for 2015--a vacation in Colorado in June, a convention in July in Washington DC and a trip to New York City in September--one of my bucket list trips.  I am so excited for that one and we have tickets for two Broadway Shows--Kinky Boots and Les Miserables!

The Joys of Easter

 


This card is for the monthly swap that Pam hosts on SCS.  Each month we make 10 cards and include a matching envelope.  They can be any theme for any month.  All of the swappers are wonderful and I have received awesome cards each and every month.  I thought I would use an Easter set  and I really liked the patterned paper!

I hope Pam and the others swappers like my card this month!
