Monthly Card Swap - March

For 2012, I joined a monthly card swap with other SU Demos. It's hosted by Cathy Bell and boy, does she ever work hard to organize swaps!! Go Cathy!!!! One thing I especially love about this swap is that we make 8 cards a month, and one of them is donated to a deployed trooper, to use to send home to a loved one. There aren't any Hallmark stores in Afghanistan, and not too much selection at the mobile PX either! It's just a small contribution to those who do so much for our country!!! In return, we get 7 cards to use as samples or our private use. Win, Win!!!

I did cards for January and February, but forgot to photograph them before sending them out. Ooops! So I wanted to be sure to get some this time! For this month's card, I had pretty much lost my "mojo", so I took out my current catalog and got this idea from there! I forget to use it as a wonderful source of inspiration, and not just as a catalog!!!!

My March card:
Front

Inside

Recipe:
Stamps: Floral Fillers, Perfect Words, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Lucky Limeade DSP
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: butterfly punch, itty bitty shapes punch, ribbon border punch, dimensionals, top note die

With mail so iffy over here (aka it takes FOREVER to get any!!!), I'll be doing my April cards very soon!
