Craftmad November Card Swap

Remember this card?  This is the card I sent off for our October Card Swap at Craftmad.  This swap carried over to November.  As well as sending a card to our partner in October we had to send a matching set of bits and pieces that made up that card.  So that in November........

Our partner could return all the bits and pieces in their own card creation.   This has been so wonderful see what everyone has come up with when using the same material.  The card above is what my parnter 54Christie did with all the bits and pieces I sent her.   Isn't this just wonderful.  I love how one square is actually chipboard wrapped in the design paper which makes it sit out.  Such a wonderful layout.

This is the card that 54Christie sent me in October with all the matching bits and pieces.  Isn't it a stunning card.  I so love how she does the layouts to her cards.  If you would like to see more be sure to visit 54Christie's Gallery Album here.

This is the card I came up with using 54Christie's bits and pieces.  We were allowed add one extra item and I thought this image Rubber Romance fitted perfectly.  I am sure I received this from the lovely Stacie. I have coloured the image with my watercolour pencils and aquabrush.

Yes, it's an easel card.

Thought you might like to see this.  My daughter does Rangers (Guides) and they were busy making these last night to give to the kids in the children's ward at the hospital.   They are chuppa chop lollipops.  Isn't it such a fun idea.
