Completed--- Cards for RMH- due: Nov 1st---holidays/birthday/all occasion
Welcome ladies,

I want to get a batch of cards together for my RMH in Columbia MO....And i'm looking forward towards the holidays...I already have enough Halloween- (and of course sending those in early October) BUT I was wondering if anyone wants to participate in a swap for Thanksgiving/Christmas and then I decided to throw in birthdays and ALL OCCASION just to round out the swap...Now the due date is NOVEMBER 1st....so there is plenty of time to sign up ---and the amt is small---4+1 with the +1 going to the RMH....

Description: Please use at least 2 layers & 1 embellishment! If you make a size different than will fit into an A-2, please include an envie. AND you choose your catagory---
1. Thanksgiving/ Fall-Autumn
2. Christmas
3. Birthday
4. ANY/ ALL occasion--these can be blank on the outside a hodgepodge of cards or should I say an assortment :)

Quantity: 4+1 -You will not get one of your own back, so make an extra one for yourself! You will get back the cards made from the same company you sign up for--so if you want both kinds of cards back, sign up for both! Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design for each spot you take.

Vendor Products: Please use very good quality cardstock (PTI/Gina K/SU). No vendor restriction on embellishments - use as many embellishments as you like. Designer papers are encouraged, but not required. YOU do not need to send the sleeves or envies...since I have enough for this swap!--- IF you put a sentiment on the inside--PLEASE stamp it on another piece of blank paper so that i can place it on the back of the plastic sleeve...so that they can read the sentiment without having to open the card.

Recipe: This is not required, but please put a sticky note or stamp your card with your signature, so everyone will know who to thank and who to leave a comment for!

Due Date: November first - I will mail them as soon as I receive all swaps! If I receive the swaps early, I will send them out early. If your cards are received after the due date, I may have to return them to you. Please post in the thread or send me a PM when your cards are postal.

Mailing instructions: Place swap cards in a large baggie for waterproof purposes. Write your real name, SCS name and swap name on a piece of paper or the baggie for identification purposes.

Swap Return: Please include self-addressed stamped envelope. The amount of postage on your SASE should be the same amount used to mail to hostess. Please include 2 additional stamps to insure enough postage to return swaps. Additional postage will be returned if not used. PLEASE SEND ONLY POSTAGE STAMPS, NO DATED STAMPS OR METERED MAIL--My Post Office will not take them If you would rather use Priority mail, please include one $5:15 priority stamp or cash and a self-addressed priority label.


PLEASE PM me for my addy once you are ready to send ---and please post as least every 2 weeks---if you have to withdraw--LIFE happens, just please be kind and let me know....

Now on to the fun part---planning and designing and creating!

Thank you


seanryan6 07-22-2012 07:34 AM

Dea--thanks for much for joining...I'll put you down for a total of 4 spots.

I was able to make some cards for my house last night....they had been sitting there and i just decided to get them done...I'm sending the halloween box in september...started pulling out some halloween card candy to see what looks good....

seanryan6 07-23-2012 06:01 AM

Happy MONDAY everyone...anyone up to making some seasonal cards :)

smhtwin 07-23-2012 09:11 AM

Hi Linda -

I'll take one spot in Thanksgiving and one spot in all/any occasion.

I will donate all of my cards to you so no returns for me :p


seanryan6 07-23-2012 01:40 PM

Lorraine--thanks so much..I'll add you to the list with "donate all' behind it....you are always so generous when it comes to the swaps....happy creating!

seanryan6 07-23-2012 01:45 PM

Afternoon bump--come one, come all, either swapping or donating--all welcome...This date is out there a way's but its never too soon to be designing for the holidays...(makes the season longer -in a good way :) )

seanryan6 07-23-2012 01:46 PM

You know with some of the other house "mom's" in this swap as well---this will be a huge supply for the RMH in whatever state they go to!

KC'sMom17 07-23-2012 05:40 PM

I would like a spot in the any/all occasion category, please.

seanryan6 07-25-2012 02:56 AM

kc mom--thanks for joining---i will update later tonight when i get home from work

have a great day ladies!

seanryan6 07-26-2012 04:30 AM

Good Morning, and Happy Thursday...

I don't know why i've been off all week....the weekend will be approaching soon...I get sunday off....so that is a positive...off next 2 days as well...needing to get some chores done, errands that sort of thing...and watering the yard/flowers...and praying for rain

that's it a nutshell hope all are staying cool

remember card making KEEPS YOU COOL...yes its a well known fact that as you create your blood supply is in your brain and it cools down your arms and legs...

If you don't believe me look it up in "LINDA"S book of funnies"...okay if that doesn't work try the AC and a cold drink....

happy crafting

seanryan6 07-27-2012 04:51 AM

for most of you TGIF....unfortunately I have to work tomorrow but will be off sun...oh well, at least i have a steady paycheck and for that i'm truly grateful...

I haven't even thought abut this swap yet. ..BUT i am getting a box ready to send before halloween...yup you guessed it its the halloween box...I have to set a date in my head when to send it so that i can get some spooky cards ready...i have others--about 25 and then some halloween...

anyway that is the game plan and i'll stick to it...

have a great day ladies and i'll be back during the olympic opening to give this thread a good night bump

Quilling_Queen 07-27-2012 07:36 AM

Can I please have 2 spots in the any/all occassion. Once recieved back, all mine will be donated to a local RMH as well in Honor of Tyler Tucker who's story is posted in the RAK threads.

seanryan6 08-06-2012 05:11 AM

happy monday ladies,

I was in my craft room---rewind--i was on the computer looking through some free digi sites and i like...found 2 that drew inspiration

one was "sorry I have been as busy as a bee"---so i printed 4 and over the bee i did a punch art bee...--4 cards thank you very much

AND i found another one that was "your celebration" in a collage type blockset...printed out those and in process of making 6 cards with that...a CAS type but cute none the less....

AND then we have monday come aorund the corner...have to do some yard work today---if i don't get into craft room today it will have to wait until weekend

have a great day ladies

seanryan6 08-09-2012 04:55 AM

tryingtofindtime 08-12-2012 07:40 AM

Linda-I got a set of christmas cards done for this swap....I'm going to hold off on sending to see if I can get some more done up for you!

seanryan6 08-15-2012 05:00 AM

Kristyn--that great and thanks so much for the "extra" :) ---I have a box that i have divided into 4 different sections...right now the all occasions and x mas have more than the b-day--the thanksgiving is empty...that wil be my next focus...

I am making a box to send out before this swap is done...it had halloween cards in it, i thought i had only a FEW---i was wrong...I have at least 20....and stil counting...

smhtwin 08-17-2012 10:03 AM

JCI from hot and sunny San Diego.......

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend full of stamping :mrgreen:

seanryan6 08-18-2012 05:51 AM

have a great weekend ladies, I'm off to a rubber stamp convention later this morning....OH i have so much fun....

seanryan6 08-19-2012 04:49 AM

well i never made it to the rubber stamp convention...(i had gone to the scrapbooking one 3 months back) BUT i did go to my local scrapbook store that was having a garage sale...I went towards the end of the day so i could browse ( the morning was madness they said) and there were alot of retired SU stamps...I found 2 wheels (gratitude and a christmas one) and i found something that i was wanting...i don't know what the name is but its a LONG stapler but it puts fasteners in (wide staples) anyway for that gadget and 4 packages of fasteners...$7...and the fasteners were almost brand new...I tried it when i got home and it was a nifty find for a nifty price...

I plan on making something today--I had been working on getting the package together for halloween...misc...total 100 cards...

and then my other box for this swap that i'm getting together as well..AND in between that playing with my all occasion card set...its turning out really nice....i'm happy with it...I'm starting to really pay attention to the inside as well..not alot of saying but decorating it a little with either an stumpie stamp (from stamps by Judith) or some decorating layered paper on the inside...

anyway--playing in the craft room and i'm happy....will do some cleaning, grocery shopping and of course a little crafting today as well--have a wonder Sunday ladies...
