My entry for ORSA #4 KISS (Keep It Simple Stamper), theme: Get Well. My photo is fuzzy but says "If wishes ciould make you well... you'd be better already! Stemp credits: verse Stampin' Up! and flowers by Hero Arts. Done with versa mark and chalk. It is hard to see but the bottom is matchbook style with staples.

I hosted a book mark swap. any theme was acceptable as long as the card contained a removable book mark that still left the card looking beautiful without it. Mine is a magnetic bookmark made from scored cardstock with magnet strip pieces inside. More to follow when I swap all of the cards out and photograph them.

I run a monthly swap group with no theme, just 8 gals who send me cards and I send them each one. this was the card I send out for September. It is retired SU! shell stamps and current "Ittly Bitty Backgrounds" set for the fly speckled look on the brown paper. The small shell is a plastic embellishemnt with microbeads glued around it.
