I am going to a Shoebox Swap tomorrow night. Fun! Fun! If you've never heard of a shoebox swap, its where you create a card as a sample; then you provide all the supplies to make the card. You cut all paper to size, cut the ribbon, include punches you put all of them in a "shoebox" so that others can duplicate your card design. As you finish making one card, you pass the box to the next person and you receive the next box with a new card design. At the end of the night each person has made all the cards that everyone has designed. Its a lot of fun! Oftentimes we get to chit-chatting that we don't always finish the cards while we're out. I usually end up finishing 1 or 2 of them at home. (I don't do well sitting and stamping. I like to stamp standing up.)

This is my card design that I've prepared for tomorrow night. Most of the time there is a theme, like for this swap we needed to use products from the Occasions or Sale-A-Bration mini catalogs.

I bet you can tell what Specialty paper I used!

Oh, no! I just realized that this sentiment is from the Grateful Greetings from the Holiday Mini Catalog…oops! Well, you can switch it with the "love you much" sentiment from the Well Scripted set in the Occasions Mini or the "love you" from the Short & Sweet stamp set or finally you can try the "Valentine {please be mine}" sentiment from the Holiday Best stamp set (IBC, Hostess Level 1 set)

I also used the following supplies:
Real Red, Very Vanilla and Whisper White Card Stock
5/8" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon
Pinking Hearts Border
