Speaking of my group of lovely ladies, dubbed the "HappyScrappers" by our 'founder' Becky, we're having a card swap tomorrow. Everyone makes cards of their choosing, and we swap them with one another to get new ideas and revel in the talent of each other. :)
Here are the cards I made. I got a little over-achieving and made two kinds to give to everyone. :)

The bottom cards are a little more masculine- a struggle for this lover of ribbons and rhinestones and all things sparkly! I used a tutorial off Splitcoast to get the idea for this card. You cut an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of cardstock in half lengthise. Score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. (I actually make the first one a tiny bit off so it is easier to fold and stays flat.) Then I used the SU label punch (??) to cut out the center after adhering a rectangle of "manly" paper from my stash. Being EXTREMELY careful, I stamped the sentiment on the inside panel. I stamped the inside image with a stamp from Michael's dollar bin. (LOVE IT!... and they just got a HUGE new assortment at our Michael's!) The "tab" is made with SU's retired punch. I was able to get mine recently from a demo who was selling hers. I put a brad in the tab to give it a little polish.
I hope you like what I've made. I'd love your comments. Have a WONDERFUL day!
