I belong to a small Yahoo group comprised of mostly local gals. We have monthly swaps, each with a specific theme. Here's what I made for January. The first swap was to use new things, either gifts we had received or something which we had recently purchased. I came across a great bargain at the local Michaels - sets of 10 note cards for 40 cents! I loved the colors and the price, so I purchased them and then used one for this card. The image is from Trish's Advent Challenge - you've got to love the little girl and her dog!
The second swap was a Valentine card. I used alcohol inks to create the background for the stamped image and purchased paper for the card itself.
