Swap offerings

Yesterday after going out for lunch with a girlfriend I decided to stop at Joann's craft/fabric store. I found a pack of scrapbook paper, Snack Pack that was half price, and I had to buy it. I have a lot of food, chocolate, and coffee related rubber stamps. I also make handmade cookbooks, and so the papers in this stack were perfect for my pages inside the books. Food related scrapbook paper can be hard to find, and you have to buy it when you see it. I especially loved the chocolate and coffee papers that was included in this stack of paper, as they look like the real thing. Also a lot of the papers had a little glitter on them for accents.

I wanted to make some greeting cards using some of the papers as I needed to create some cards for a monthly swap. So below are the cards I made. My scanner wasn't working this morning, and so the photos could have been better as the scanner keeps the cards flat.

Oh, while I think of it...while downstairs digging thru boxes of stamps I found 2 new rubber stamps that were doubles. I will be offering the chocolate themed phrase stamps as a giveaway after the OWOH blog event is over.
