Oregon/Washington SCS Shoebox swap!

Happy World Cardmaking Day!!

Appropriately scheduled, I attended the OR/WA shoebox swap today. We meet every 6 months and alternate between a location in Oregon and Washington. Today's meeting was in Canby -just south of Portland. I went last year and had a great time. But this year, it was even better because I had a whole year to get to know these lovely ladies from SCS!

For those of you new to Shoebox swap (like me last year), everyone is asked to make a sample card and then cut and prepare the supplies for 10 identical cards placed in individual baggies. I COMPLETELY forgot to take a picture of my swap card, but I can tell you it uses the Diva-lish image from Unity Stamp's Diva-Lish set. Everyone sits at a table away from their own card and assembles others. I have been asked me what I do with my swap cards. Most of you have read that my cousin, Kyle is in the Army stationed overseas, I give all the cards to him to share with his unit.

I have some fun pictures to share!!

This first one is of me and Heidi (Pinkhedgehog), I know you ALL are familiar with her name as I talk about her all the time. She is a dear friend of mine, not only do I visit her almost every week, but get all my ribbons and brads from her store (Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts).
This next picture is of me and Kelly (Kelly H). We sat by each other at Table B. It was fun to chat with Kelly and discover she is on the same Design Team with 2 of my stamping friends, Joan (Joan Ervin) and Linsey (scrapperLinsey) for Clear Dollar Stamps! You go girl!!
This next picture is of me and Cindy (YLM). Cindy is such a sweet person!! Lots of you all got to meet her when she was a Featured Stamper on SCS Week 70. Somehow she finds the time to comment on EVERY card anyone submits to the Featured Stamper challenge each week! Hugs to you Cindy :-)
What a fun day! I could go on and on and even post a couple more pictures, but I am fighting off a head cold and am exhausted. I believe Debs (Doodah), who organized this shin-dig, will be posting all the pictures of the tables and swap cards in her gallery in a few days.

Thanks for stopping by!! See you tomorrow when I post the Featured Stamper card... This week it is Love Stampin!!!!!! I am new to her gallery, but love what I saw.


  1. Glad you had fun at the swap. Nice to see pictures of "names" on SCS too.

    Wow, do you have killer blue eyes!! Doesn't show up as well in your avatar. You remind me of Lucy Lawless --Zeena Warrior Princes - translated as "Michelle Card Warrior Princess" LOL. Keep all the wonderful creations coming :)

  2. Okay, Michelle. You can't tell anyone I said this. You are just as lovely as your blog picture if not more so. Also, its to see that your picture looks like you. I have to take my picture to post on my blog sometime. Good to hear about the fun you had.

  3. Ooooh, look at my cute little roomie!!! Looks like you had a great time...sure wish I could have been there!!! Hope you get to feeling better!!!
