I’m signed up for a card swap, done a bit differently than the usual. It is a “It’s raining….” swap. Instead of making 6 cards and mailing them to the hostess, you make up a set number and mail them directly to the recipients for that month. I’m doing the “It’s raining Bellas” swap and needed to have 4 cards ready to go for August.
Yesterday I cashed in on part of my stocking stuffer gift from my wonderful husband. He gave me a certificate for one day (9AM to 7PM) free of children. I was able to get about 3 hours in yesterday and it is amazing what a child-free environment does for your mojo.
I used the Mojo96 sketch from last week and put together this set of cards featuring Eloise Greengrass. She is just adorable and I am thrilled with how they turned out. I used the same colors on each, but mixed them up a bit each time. I used the Blossom Nestabilities to cut out Eloise and the circles to provide the mat. These also covered a few Dare to Get Dirty challenges — Eggette’s Flap Your Wings!; Becca_Stamps’ Cut it Out!; and Lauraly’s Tie One On! — which wasn’t even planned on my part!
I loved the colors in these– so soft and subtle. I hope the ladies who receive these will be happy as well.
It’s Raining Eloise!
