Shoebox Swap, Part Two

As promised, here’s the rest of the pics I took at our Shoebox Swap on January 8.  Misty is back home in St. Louis and I’ve got caught up on some stuff.  First up, the exchange cards.  Our theme for January was “Postage.”

Tange had a spare swap sample and since we aren’t anal about the theme, she used this for her exchange card.

Tange's Valentine

Patty did this four seasons of stamps card.

Here’s Melanie’s birdie on a branch with a pansies love stamp I have to find.

Cheryl was visiting us and brought this Asian-inspired card using the postage template, I think.

These are the pics Helen shared with everyone.

I’ll be sharing pics of the places we took Misty and Bob to see:  Lighthouses, manatees, beaches. 

Thanks for visiting.  As always, comments are welcome.

First of all, I would have been happy to have received any of these cards in the postage swap, but I love the card I got from Melanie as an exchange. I love the idea of the exchange, and want to introduce it to my stamping group. It is so much fun to see what you can do different with one theme. Thanks again for the fun ladies.
