Circle Circus Swapping!

This is one of the cards from the Shoebox Swap on Thursday evening. We all had such a fun time and it was held at Cyndi's FABULOUS new home!!! We stayed REALLY late and poor Cyndi had to work in the morning! Sorry Cyndi!

This card was made by my upline Sue L. I am not a big fan of the Soft Suede color but when I see it with the Crushed Curry I like it a lot more. I've tried to mix it with other colors and the Soft Suede looked like it was more of a brown olive color. I guess you just need to know what colors to mix together!! LOL

The stamp set used here is the Stampin' Up! "Circle Circus." I don't have that set and I may have to put it on my wish list. It makes a fun background too!! Every time I see things done like this with sets they somehow end up on my wish list. It's getting longer all the time!!!! UGH!

Didn't his make a fun birthday card? The words I believe are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. The Word Window punch was used and the "Modern Label" punch behind it. Don't you just LOVE punches? They sure do dress up a card or scrapbook page and it's SO much better than cutting them out by hand!!! I think I might do that once!!! LOL

I have more cards to share with you and I'll fit them in as I post on here!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Wanda, I don't really like Crushed Curry, but I do love Soft Suede. Try putting it together using Bashful Blue or Pretty in Pink. Mary

I like this card. I also have a hard time with the soft suede color but it does look great here! I've done some cards with this set and will be posting them all this week if you want to take a peek.
