Saturday SWAPs

Good Saturday morning, All! Hope everyone is getting to spend Saturday doing exactly what they want to do. I know for me that includes helping hubby hangs some new storage rails in my craft room and getting a chance to get my fingers inky!

For today's Saturday SWAPs I am sharing a card that I made last week for an Eat Cake Graphics SWAP hostessed by Dana Vincent over at SCS. Dana had seen an ATC that I had made using ECG and PM'd me to see if I would like to join her SWAP. I did have to consider it a minute only because I had really spread myself pretty thinly between SWAPs and JBE DT Challenges but I adore the funny, whimsical, line drawn images from Eat Cake and decided to give it a try. My contribution to the SWAP is pretty straight forward and was quick to put together. All stamps are by ECG and PP is from K & Co. Wild Saffron paper pack (I love that line of paper.) The background was stamped tone on tone with Taken with Teal and the sentiment was made using a MM Tag Maker. I attached the tag with a couple of glue dots, then stitched in place with Karen Foster's Scrapers' Floss. That pretty much covers it. With my new DT commitments, I will have to really cut back on committing myself to SWAP groups. I am currently signed up for an A - Z Inchie SWAP (I'm U & V) and I will participate in the JBE ATC SWAPs but that is about it. Wishing everyone a rubber-filled weekend (or whatever else it is that you might want to do)! It's ALWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care, Beth
