I thought it would be fun to do another card swap, but this time do it with a twist. Instead of a holiday/event theme- I thought it would be fun to do color themes, or technique themes. YOU CHOOSE THE SENTIMENT as long as it's in-line with the theme you sign up for.

The Rules:
    The due date will be Friday July 13th. This means in my hands, NOT the mail by date.

    Please send a return envelope, mail label (with your address), and the amount of postage it took to send PLUS 3 extra stamps. Cards are heavy, so the extra postage WILL be needed. I will send anything unused back to you.

    Please put each group of cards in a ziploc bag with the name of the group, and your SB.com name

    Include envelopes for all the cards you make. You do NOT have to make the envelopes, just provide them.

    Make one card for each person in the group, including yourself. You may send a place card if you wish.

    If the groups fill up, I will open up additional groups.


THEMES:

Punched Out: (For this card group, you will create a card that primarily uses punches to decorate the front of your card.)

Group A:
1.karmax3
2.i heart scrapping
3.hostess
4.Melissa Birlem
5.tlcaddison

Group B
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Red, White, and Blue (Since the cards are due in July, I thought it would be fun to do a red, white, and blue theme. Make the sentiment be whatever you would like, just as long as you use these colors.)

Group A:
1.karmax3
2.mjmone
3.Scrappiebeth
4.charcats7
5.texlady

Group B:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

TAGGED (For this group, you will need to incorporate a tag of some sort into the decor of your card.)

Group A:
1.karmax3
2.mjmone
3.hostess
4.texlady
5.craftylady78

Group B:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

Buttons & Bows: ( For this theme you will need to incorporate atleast one button and one bow)
Group A:
1.karmax3
2.i heart scrapping
3.hostess
4.texlady
5.Andiebee

Group B:
1.tlcaddison
2.
3.
4.
5.

Purple & Grey (create a card within this color theme)

Group A:
1.jennikate
2.karmax3
3.mjmone
4.Scrappiebeth
5.hostess

Group B:
1.texlady
2.Andiebee
3.pwiswell
4.Melissa Birlem

ohhh no no no!! You don't have to make any envelopes...you just have to provide envelopes for your card. You can go to any craft store and buy just envelopes...or you can go and buy card blanks that come with envelopes.

All you have to make is the card

Now, I'm not reading it as we have to make our own envelopes, but that we need to provide one, cuz I'm not an envelope maker also

Folks there are a couple of spots left in the calendar swap. You only need 13 LO's per the month of your choice, as opposed to 26. You have plenty of time. They are not due until October After you get them back, that will give you plenty of time to ad pictures and bind them into a christmas gift for someone. These will be very versatile LO's so you could do anything with them, ie. use them for scrapbook layouts, etc. Got any questions, ask me? Here is the link:

Maybe I should explain- both me & my DH are in the TN Army National Guard. I am a CW2 & both of us work full time as Federal Techs for the HQ here in Nashville, TN. Deployments are hard. I've been the wife at home twice as well as a Soldier.

This is fortunately a school at Ft Gordon, GA. Not close enough for a visit every weekend- but at least once a month.

That sounds like a busy and interesting lifestyle! Thank you both for your service. Your job sounds like it would be challenging, but in an interesting way. I'm somewhat of a tech geek and all of the different challenges associated with fixing and maintaining both software and hardware have always intrigued me. I can't begin to fathom the types of challenges you deal with on a Federal level though.

Monthly visits will be nice!

I went to OCS at Ft Benning back in 1988 & I know that red clay well. Awful stuff. Sticks to everything when it's wet. I think most of GA is made of it
