My SOTM Swap Cards



My creative slump subsided for a few hours today... and I got... (drumroll) 24 cards DONE! YIPPEE! Well, actually 25 because I tried out the Dahlia Fold today. I'd post, but first tries at anything are usually pretty ugly and this is no exception. =) Nanci Hatcher only requires 10 cards for her swap, but I always make a few extra for my stash.

To celebrate my productivity I'm going to have my first ever reader GIVEAWAY! Post a comment on today's blog, and I'll randomly select two readers who will each receive one of the cards above! I'll post the winner on Thursday, Valentines Day! (that was my shameless plug a helpful reminder to make/buy something nice for your sweetie. So Honey - if you're reading this I would love the cute little stamp set we talked about. wink, wink!)

Supplies used (All CTMH):
Flower card: Buttercup, Sweet Leaf and Petal CS, March SOTM "Simple Beauty", Black Archival ink; Honey ink, Petal, Blush, Sweet Leaf reinkers, waterbrush, sparkles.

Postmark card: Silhouette Paper Pack, Black Designer Ribbon Round, April SOTM "Express Postage", Black Archival ink, Desert Sand ink, Desert Sand CS, Chocolate Mini Medley flowers, Coluzzle Circle cutter.

These cards are lovely, glad to have you blogging. I am a newbie to it too, it gets addicting! How does the new cropadile work? Do I need that too?!

I LOVE your cards - as usual. I always open the artwork board posts that have your name there! God has truly blessed you with creativity and an eye for the details! I signed up for a gmail account and blog (thanks for the email with the details) but don't know if I can get it as nice as yours!

Nona - Cute cards. I'm always sure to check the ctmh bb when I see your name. It has been fun to look at your blog and see more!
In case I'm the winner, I don't look at my gmail email very often, so please email me at leslie_syme@yahoo.com.
Thanks! Keep up the great work!

Nona,
Love your blog- glad you posted it on the Ctmh BB.
The cards are great - maybe I'll actually get the sotm, since I've moved I stopped buying them until business picks up.
Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing!
