WELCOME VICKIE!!! I am so glad you are joining us. If you have any questions at all feel free to ask. I can not wait to see your very first Alphabet Challenge card.
Diane, you can use them as BRAK cards. Or you can hang on to them for future use like if you have a birthday you forgot about and you don't have time to make a card. Things like that. Because I am so compulsive about organization; I keep mine in drawers grouped by which swap they are from. I have a "Glossery" of what kind of cards are in each swap and where in the swap file I can find them. For example: Let's say one of the cards I received from a past swap (Let's say the Vintage Swap) is a "Just thinking about you" card. Now let's say I am looking for a card to send to my best friend; I go to my glossery and see that in drawer 3 the fourth set of cards in are the Victorian Swap cards and the 7th card in is a "Just thinking about you" card, bingo there's the card I want to send out.
I do it this way because I want to know which swap my cards came from.
I know it may sound confusing but once you see it it really does make sense.
I use a lot of my stash for the monthly "Cards for a Cause". You might consider getting involved in Mothermark's monthly (different cause each month) cause.
Wow ladies, awesome cards!!!!! Very nicely done. I left love for y'all. If I missed someone's card....PLEASE tell me because I want to see them ALL. Muscrat....great dare...but she pulled it off so now you have to send her a B card. Good job Lynn. I'm still waiting to see if Donna accepts Marney's Dare. Now why is someone under the naughty step??? And why do we have both a naughty corner and a naughty step? Oh yes, I remember, it's because all y'all were getting in trouble in the naughty corner together so I had to seperate you. Oh for those of you that accepted and completed a dare, I turned post #2 into a "Wall of Fame". I have to add Lynn's Dare. Oh and Kathy you get a point towards that awesome prize for have your dare completed.
Thanks Ladies for all the suggestions & ideas!! I have truly appreciated hearing what you do with all the cards you have received in card swaps! I agree that giving away the extra cards is a good thing to do. Thanks for all the ideas of where to donate. I've always wanted to ask someone that question; I'm glad I asked you!
Happy Stampin'! ~ Diane

Girl, I worry about you. I wish I could send you the window air conditioner we used to use.
Someone mentioned Mothermarks Cards for a Cause. If you have never done one of her challenges, she has that one and Teapot Tuesdays, you should give one a try. She is such an awesome lady. However, you do not have to play the challenge in order to send cards to whichever cause she is donating to.
Ok, just so there is no confusion; when a dare is posted i.e. I dared Kathy to do a Bullseye card or project. She accepted my dare and she completed a card with a bullseye on it which in turn she can ALSO use for her "B" card. Now I have to send her a "B" card because she completed my dare. Now you may be wondering "what do I get for posting the dare?" well, that is where the "Special Prize" comes in. Once you dare someone and they complete it you get a point towards winning the prize. Oh and I am keeping my points. I am trying to think of ways for y'all to win them from me through out the weeks. Does this make sense?
G'morning my little spelling "B"ees.....how did everyone sleep? Lynn, did you sleep at all? Guess what I am doing today? Getting into my stamping room to organize...yep, I still haven't done that. I just get busy doing other things, like learning how to make pretty bows and stuff. lol....I ended up not going out last night because my pain level shot thru the roof. So Dawn and I sat here and played Skipo. Well I stood most of the time. Anyways....I have to say thank you to ALL of you. You really started round 4 off tremendously!!! I couldn't ask for a better take off. Thank you so much!!!!! I have the bestest friends ever. I tell ya, people really need to, nice people, really need to join SCS they would make some awesome friends. Donna, you are correct. You are now finished with letter "B". Unless you want to make more than one card, that my dear is fine too, but not required. Kathy, you gave excellant directions, thank you.
Now I have a question for all y'all, I am thinking about changing "my" color to Blue instead of the purple, what do you think?
Well my dear friends, I can already tell that sitting is not going to be much of an option for me right now.....therefore I will probably be popping in and out all day. However, for now, I must change positions....be good and stay out of the naughty corner will ya?
Location: In the Forest with my Forest Friends, of course!
Good Morning Friends!!!
YAY!!! It’s the weekend! And it’s RAINING! We haven’t had rain in two months, so that is VERY EXCITING!!!
... ♥ ... ♥ ... ♥ ...
Today is International Nude Day, Bald In – Bald Out Day,
and Grange Day.
Enjoy your holiday of choice today!
I will NOT be celebrating internationally today.
Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to that some criminals are just foolish!
A California trucker was charged with trying to avoid a toll at the George Washington Bridge after a Port Authority Police officer spotted him covering his license plates with duct tape. The officer pulled him over after he drove through an E-ZPass lane without a transponder.
The truck driver was charged with theft of services and tampering with public documents (his license plates) a crime which will result in a hefty fine. The cash toll for six-axle vehicles on the George Washington Bridge, including tractor trailers, is $78 at all times, which would have been considerably less expensive.
Donna you did it..... And my card will be in the mail by Monday.. I was easy on you as you already had the butterfly,, just wait for next time!!!!!
Love the announcements.. good t have a smile in the morning, sett the tone for the day...
Dani hope you have some relief today and you don't have to stand all day....
I am still organizing as well, Kathy and Dani, I need your help.. I get so far then get bogged down at the end when you have all this left over stuff, like odd shaped embellishments, big flowers verus small flowers etc. grrrrr.. With the cards you give away in bundles , do you finish them off with verses inside or leave them blank.?
I am so proud of myself though as I have my cards all sorted and categorized and that is such a big help.
O My ! I have the most beauitful butterfly fluttering around me as I sit here on my deck talking to you.. so really it is a great morning......
