SUper Friends May Swap

Back again today!  School finished yesterday, and we had a busy day, but today has been more mellow -- a good first day of summer vacation!  Thought since I had a few minutes, I'd sneak in here and post photos from the May SUper Friend swap.  Our theme last month was summer, and I think it is great fun to see everyone's take on that!  Hope you agree!

First up is this perfectly awesome and patriotic card by Connie:

I love the star window in the front that allows the "Happy 4th" inside to peek through!  And here's the rest of the inside:

Connie hosted our gathering, and had prepared these adorable treats for everyone:

For her project, Nancy created these super-cute beach totes:

These would be really cute to fill with a chocolate square or some other candy treats for a summer gathering!

Agnes created this wonderfully interactive shaker card with the Sheltering Tree stamp set:

Our newest member is Diana (and you can see more of her fabulous card creations in her etsy shop:, and she created this sweet card using the cupcake punch for the ice cream and cherry and the tree punch for the cone:

I love how she sponged the coordinating colors on the background!

Jana also created a yummy-looking card, featuring the Sprinkles of Life stamp set, Tree Builder Punch, and gorgeous new Bohemian Designer Series Paper:

She finished the inside of her card with the Bohemian DSP as well (gotta love the coordination!!):

For my card, I decided to use Sprinkles of Life to create a summer scene.  The sun is the burst from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set, I sponged on a sky, using a cloud mask punched with the Tree Builder Punch, and the rest are images stamped from the Sprinkles of Life set (so much fun!!!).  And, the little butterfly lighting on the greeting banner is from an image in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp set:

I used similar images to finish the inside, too:

Thanks so much for visiting!!!
