... for a swap! I mentioned before that Lemonade Kitty is running a button swap. I ummed and ahhed (for some reason I was nervous!) but in the end I went for it! You've got to try these things!
Now I'm really glad I did, as the pairs have been announced, and I'm feeling excited about getting to know Kandipandi (my swap partner) and trying to get together some things that she will like!
I will, of course, share pictures with you all once the swap has happened!
I've made a couple of cards lately, and I plan to make another one tonight, but I will have to wait until they've been received before I show you pictures here. (Annoying! I want to show you now!)
So... in the meantime, I thought I would share with you pictures of a New Home card I made for my brother and sister-in-law when they moved into a new house last year. My lovely Swedish friend (hi again!) came up with the great idea of making an exploding box card, shaped like a house. A great idea, but quite troublesome to make! I cursed the whole idea a number of times during production!
Here is side 1 of the house, including a front door.
Side 2, complete with their two cats!
Side 3, including a back door.
Side 4, complete with their rabbit (no longer with us, sadly) - and a giant flower box and butterflies! I decided against sticking with the correct proportions!
Then... pull off the roof, and this is what you see!
When you looked inside the roof there was a little message for them too.
It took forever to make (maybe I'm just a slow crafter) but I think it was worth it in the end!
