Card swap round 1, month 4

Leslie was our hostess for the last month of this round of the card kit swap. She included a variety of papers and embellishments in various themes (look! I remembered to take a picture of the kit!)

This first card isn't quite done. Everything you see is from the kit. I can't find the embellishments I want to add, but I don't, I'm sure I'll find something else to use in the stash.

Everything but the ribbon is from the kit in this next card. I cut out the words from the patterned paper and used it like the old MM Wordfetti.

I used my own card base in the next card (not that you can tell the difference from the white cardstock in the previous photo, lol). Notice a theme in my design? I think I need to branch out. I added the dots using Ranger enamel accents. I wish Ranger sold this is other colors or sold just the black separately. I'm sure I'll go through the black much faster than the white.

This last card is also all from the kit, except for the "celebrate" rubon from American Crafts. I had a heck of a time getting the rubon to stick. I'm not sure if it was because my rubon is so old or the texture/finish of the cardstock repelled the rubon. I would have gone to punched letters, but I was too lazy to dig out my

I think I need to make one more card so I can make use of the pink buttons Leslie included.

Since Leslie doesn't have a blog, I've included them here.

Here are Susan's cards. And Katie's cards. Stop by their blogs and leave them a little comment love.

We'll have some new swappers joining us for the next round and I'm busy putting together the kits. I didn't make my goal of not being the last to post my cards, but at least I did it before the end of the month.
