I signed up for a Chunky ABC swap with the British Yahoo Group called Katy's Corner. They are a great group. For this swap we have to make and send 3 pages a month so it will take a while to finish the book. Here are my A - B and C pages. I'll post what I get back too so you can see them!

Sorry I've been missing in action. I was up in New England visiting our sons. I had a great time, but it's good to be back home. This is a card that I adapted from one that I saw at Bella Arts in Johnston, RI. It's a great store if you are ever in the area!
I wanted to add texture on this card so I mixed 3 green Flower Soft colors for the tree. I tried something new for the flowers. I put dots of Liquid Applique, heated them and then snipped off the top of each. It left a ring with an indented center on most. I really like how it looks!

I used wrapping paper for the background of this card. I liked it so much that I shrunk it down on the copier and printed it out on glossy paper for the truck. I wanted a shiny paint job!! I was really pleased with the results. The stamps are in a set is called "Loads of Love" from Stampin' Up. The tires are made with black fun foam and large brads!

I follow Taylored Expressions Blog and this morning she introduced some new dies that are specific to her stamp sets. She posted a video showing how to use them. I thought it was pretty cool. If you want to see it...scroll way down to the bottom of my blog and click on the play button! I have to admit...I was a little distracted by her wedding ring...it's gorgeous!!
