The swap itself was awesome! It was hosted by Tracy and Amanda and they did a fab job! I had a blast trying out everyone's cards and for a newbie it was great to get some ideas and learn some new techniques!! I also unfortunately now want about 4-5 more stamps sets then I did when I went in LOL I have a pic of some of my completed cards below.
Also I won a fabulous prize from Rhonda - an adorable altered house she did! She is being pretty modest but it is adorable!!!! So overall a wonderful day away from home and I am uber motivated now to make some christmas cards!!! I think I will continue with Santa for now. But I foresee that Cardinal stamp set and the snowman stampin up set in my near future!
