Thanks for being patient with me. Our 2 p c are broken and I have to admit, there are things I still don't know how to do on my mac. I also need to thank my husband who had the tech come in today STAT!
For being so patient, my post today will be a double one and you are going to be pleased. First of all I had created for my Sudsol swaps this first project. It was also to be featured on Marvelous Monday's. I just love the turn out and hope my Sudsol swappies will love it too.
Blythe was the hostess, and I have to admit she is really a sweet lady for accommodating me on such short notice. You have to see my post on the weekend and see why I have been so busy. Not only back to school but I have been working on something big lately. Ok enough chatting!
The first card is for the demonstrators that participated in the swap. I made 40 babies of these.
The second card is my upgrade and this one is for my hostess, Blythe. Sometimes, adding just a few accessories can bring a card to the next level. Simply elegant!
