Holiday SWAP!

I cannot believe I have been a stamper for almost 6 years and I have never taken part in a swap! Well when one of the lovely design teams I am on suggested we do one, I was all over it :) I had to make sure I had my cards ready to mail before we leave for vacation on Tuesday and here they are... Off to the Post Office tomorrow morning! Keep your eyes on the mail Dynamic Ladies...

I used the sketch from The Paper Players but then realized I missed the submission deadline {ooops!} but I will be entering this card in the Merry Monday anything goes challenge :) I am also entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge over at Inkspirational :)

  1. This is gorgeous, Hayley! I hope you don't mind if I case it for the holiday season. I end up doing a couple of card stacks - and sometimes I just don't have time to plan. This is quick and easy....and stunning.

  2. How lovely! I am happy to see that my sketch inspired you to do a Christmas card! Love it! Thanks for playing with the Paper Players!

  3. Hayley this is gorgeous and can't wait to receive mine! Yay!! I haven't even started mine. :(
