My first swap card...

Ok, I know I said I would post my swap card yesterday & I heard from a couple of you because I didn't... I have been having trouble getting pics to upload... is it just me? I never had much trouble until a week or so ago... it really bugs me!!! Has anyone else had this problem?

Ruth, a friend of mine, (BTW Ruth is an excellent scrap booker, she could teach me a thing or two) asked if I wanted to be in a card swap... I have never done a swap before but I thought it might be fun... so here is the outcome of my creating:

I used card stock: Always Artichoke, Purely Pom., Cameo Coral, & Very Vanilla; same colors in the inks; SU set is Baroque Motifs and Reason to Smile. It has an offset opening (I don't really know if there is a technical term for that). I also used the Cuttle Bug to emboss... my mom let me borrow her CB to try out since I don't have one of my own... isn't she a good mom???

I did have fun doing it... what do you think about how it turned out?

We had a great church service last night... Wednesday evening services just keep bigger & bigger... last night was our last Wed. service in our old church building. It is bitter sweet... we are thrilled what is happening in the church & so excited to see what great things God has in store for northern Michigan, but at the same time sad to leave our familiar little "cocoon" we have been in. There are & will be awesome things happening once we move to the new building... if you want to see some of what is happening checkout Resurrection Life Church.

Time to get some chores done around here... chores?? I sound like I live on a farm!!! No farm just lots of cat hair to clean up! *Ü*

with a grateFUL HEART, carin

The card is GORGEOUS !! I am so delighted that I have a friend that can do all this for me to enjoy, since I don't do this. I love looking at all your designs. A gorgeous day and I just now got outside. I have been so busy doing usher/greeter things that the day has flown by and the only house thing I have done is make the bed. Doug has been up to the church all day and usually doesn't take time for lunch, so I am planning supper as soon as he gets home. It is so exciting to think that next week we will be in our new church for good. We thank God everyday for placing us at Res Life and for our great family there. You and Luke are very special to us and we treasure your friendship. I got your invitation to your party on the 27th. We are planning to go to the Midland antique show that day. If it rains - we will not go and I will come up. Your parties are always fun. See you Sunday. Love you - Sharon
