It's that time of year when I get togther with a few wonderful friends for our Annual Card and cookie exchange. I really love this beacuse it's two of my favorite things…cards and cookies!! This year there were seven of us and we each did 4 cards per person and a 1/2 dozen cookies per person. Each person does a differnt category for the cards and this year I got Famale Birthday. It's great because now we have 24 cards to start off the New Year ready for those special occasions….although the cards are so beautiful…I hate to give them away.

Heres' a look at the card I chose to do this year:


This is a great technique that I got from the Stampin up! Workshop WoW's DVD. I will be posting several pictures soon on how to do this technique so stay tuned…

Here's the whole group all bundled up…


For the cookie exchange I made a yummy cookie recipe that I got from my friend Wendy Kondrat. She was so sweet to share her recipie for Nut bars with me. I guess if you zoom in close now you have the recipie too! 🙂

I decided to use Stampin up's new treat boxes to package mine uip and they worked great. They come in packages of 5 for just $5.25 so they are a great deal too. I think i'm going to stock up on some of these!


The recipie card:


and here's the whole group ready to go…


Stamping and card making is so much fun and being in a Card swap is a wonderful idea any time of the year. Just get a group of friends together and see how much fun it can be !!! Happy Stamping!!
