A Treat for the "Fancy Swap Hop"

If you've just arrived from Kaylene's blog ~ Welcome! If you are just stopping in, you're in the middle of a blog hop! Well, read on, to see what's up!

At Convention, my good stampin' buddy, Liz, and I hosted our first Swap! We got some really awesome cards!! Liz, being the blog expert, helped us to create this 'blog hop' to share some of the cards we swapped.

So, you're probably wondering where my card is?! Well, I was the official hostess, and Liz was the #1 swapper. So I made these "name badges with a little treat," and Liz made 80 cards!! (You'll see her card if you keep hoppin'!)

So, my idea was to decorate a clothespin with Designer Paper and a little cutsie something on it. I used Cherry Cobbler Patterned Paper on the clothespin, and then made a medallion with Cherry Cobbler using the new Perfect Pennants Big Shot die. I added a 1 3/4" circle with the First Edition Papers, an Island Indigo Big Shotted star, and a "You're a Gem" friend oval punched.

And, one of my favorites, a Linen bow, to top it off!

Oh, and my other favorite thing - some candies for the treat!! The people who participated got to take the cello baggie with Cookies and Cream Kisses for their treat - and then clip the rest to the lanyard or name badge so we knew they were a part of the swap! - A lot of great fun!

Speaking of fun - one of the best swaps I got is next on the blog hop... Check out what Jaydee made by clicking HERE.
