I know I said after the last swap I would start another round in April Well obviously that didn't happen. It was probably good to have a month break from the swap. Now I'm up for another round. How about you? :D

This swap is a one on one swap.  Its a secret so SHHHHH!! No one will get the same person. Example: Lucy and sally won't get each other. At least I hope not I draw names out of a hat. It is open for international people too. If you are in the states and don't want an international partner due to postage. (believe me I understand. ) please let me know when you sign up.

As for stuff to send to your Secret Sister.  You can buy stuff for your sister, but since this is come clean in 2016 please let a good chunk of it be from your stash. Making things is also encourage.

Deadline for signups May 30 I will get partners out on May 31. Deadline to mail your packages to your Secret Sister by June 30 That gives you a month, plenty of time to do go through your stash, shopping and making gifties for your Secret Sisters. Also this will give you a little early Christmas (or Hanukkah present (that's if the post office does its job and gets it to you on time or coal for them!) LOL I Will be tweeting reminding everyone in the swap to get crackalacking and get those packages in the mail. I am the secretary after all! :D Please no flakers!

Coffee: feeds the soul.

New Month new Challenge over on Viva Las VegaStamps! And its all about coffee!

I made this card using The Tim Holtz coffee cup texture fade. I sprayed some home made coffee spray on the cardstock. I stamped the coffee ring stamp, numbers and starry background stamps in Distress ink pads in Walnut stain and Vintage photo. The beans is from TPC Studip Cafe Mocha stamp set. I would of used some coffee beans that i have a Silhouette file of but didn't have any on hand, and didn't want to turn on my cameo just to cut out 3 little beans. I stamped on the background and white cardstock and use foam tape to attach them on the card front. The coffee cup I stamp on white card stock and colored with my Peerless Watercolors. I cut and popped that out with foam squares. Once the front was done. I used 1/4 Miracle tape on the front and taped it to the card base. Lastly for the front of the card. I stamped the free your soul on white card base.

Inside the card I stamped the morning without coffee. with Black Versafine ink pad and then I sprayed some more coffee on the inside.
