Christmas Card Mini Swap

On December 10th, five of us girlz got together for a mini Christmas Card swap at my neighbor's home.  We each brought 20 kits - so everyone could make 5 cards of each design (not counting their own).   Everyone left with 20 awesome Christmas cards :)

Be Strong

Since I haven't had time to post any new cards lately, I'm posting a few cards I made in October for a few of my friends who are breast cancer survivors.  They are amazing women, and one can only hope to have their strength and courage on any given day.

The stamp set used is "Be Strong" by JustRite.  JustRite Crafting For a Cause donates 20% of the sales from this stamp set in 2011 to Ovarian Cancer Research.

I also used a couple different embossing folders and Spellbinders dies, and colored the ribbons with Copic markers.
