Parade of Cool Card Ideas

I’m excited to share many beautiful handmade cards today that I have received over the last few weeks.  Guess who had a birthday earlier this week?  Kicking my little card parade off is the sunflower card (above) created by Shelly Garris, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals.

DON’T MISS!  Shelly will be my Pals Guest Stamper tomorrow with another fabulous card idea!



Here are swaps from my Southwest Stampers Stampin’ Up! demonstrator group:
