Silhouette in Red: One Card…Two Swaps!

Hi all,

What do 5 papers, 6 punches, ink and rubber add up to?   

Answer:  1 Wacky Watercooler Women’s Swap and  a busy, busy card but a “wheely” good time!

Can you tell I went just a little bit punch crazy while I was away from the blog? 

 A fabulous set of demonstrator friends who have informally named themselves the Wacky Watercooler Women (though the name is subject to change at the drop of a hat – LOL!) decided to have a getting to know you informal swap over the last couple of weeks.   And this was my entry.   I also cheated slightly and used the same design for my local demonstrator team swap as well!  After making 25 of these cards I think I could operate these punches in my sleep! 

I know I’m posting a little bit early and a little bit late (the swaps just went into the mail this week and will probably be one of the last to arrive in my friends mail boxes but the team meeting is long over) but I wanted to share the details now since like an absent minded professor (I have the mind just not the degree!) I forgot to include an ingredient list in with the swap cards.  Oh well…such is life.    

I’ll be sharing the swaps I’ve received in exchange over the next few weeks and hopefully links to my friends blogs as well so you can get to know some wonderful stampers and see some gorgeous projects.

Hard to beat this design for price either …… Cost per card including envelope: $.56 ( less if you are a demonstrator or sign up to become one and make use of your 20% discount on all products!)
