A merry Christmas card exchange...

Good morning! A while ago, Patti from Cherish Each Precious Day offered to organize a Christmas card swap, and I jumped at the chance to join her and five other ladies in creating cards that we could exchange with each otherI've never been part of a swap before, so this would be a new experience for me. 

Patti kept in contact with the group as she received the cards from each participant, teasing us by telling us how wonderful they all were, but not sharing any details. She then invited us to take it one step further, and do a blog hop with our swap cards. This would also be a new experience for me! 

The big day has finally arrived and we are all ready to share our cards with you. This blog hop is just for fun...no prizes, but we hope that you are inspired by something that you see today! 

Here is my swap card:

This little poinsettia die from Marianne Creatables is awesome! So quick to cut and put together. You can see here that I also used the Martha Stewart medium pine branch punch for a little more "greenery" around my flower.

I added some more of those MS branch punches on the inside of the card. The greeting was heat embossed and I embossed three lines across the top for some added detail.

As an extra bonus with my Christmas cards, I decided to created some coordinating tags. The poinsettia is the perfect size for tags, too!

Now, you can hop along with us, and see what the other folks created!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day!

Gorgeous embossing background, dies and poinsettia. The tags are a brilliant idea too. Loving the colors, Cheryl. Can't wait to see them in person, what a good idea this was thanks to Patti.

Wow Cheryl! What a fantastic collection of projects! Love the pretty Poinsettias and the embossed background!


Love the embossed white space, what a serene Christmas card and love the matching tag. Wish I had thought of that! This was a fun hop, my first one to boot! Patti is sure getting my mojo revved up, something I needed! I was going to use these cards to send to friends but have decided to keep them for inspiration. :) Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
