Something to warm up the freeze

Here in Northern Ohio we have below zero temps. Beautiful sunrise and blue skies but so cold. This is another Leadership swap I received last month. This one was created by Alicia Graham. These happy colors will help warm us up. Love the Pom Pom touch.

Hello Swap Card

Today's swap card was made by Sharon McNeely. It uses the Painted Petals stamp set and Painted Blooms Designer Paper. Usually we use the ribbon to cover the edge of the papers but Sharon put the ribbon behind the DSP. What a clever idea.

Leadership swaps

During Leadership 2015 in not so warm Orlando I participated in an organized swap organized by Lyssa Z. I love her swaps as the quality is perfection. Today's post is a card made by Patti Gress. She used the Wreath framelit to create a gorgeous Valentine card. She used the hearts embossing folder for the background. Great card.
