Mystery Swappers

... it almost sounds like Mystery Shoppers... you know, those shoppers who secretly shop for the purpose of seeing how a store is treating its customers.

But no, Mystery Swappers is much more fun that that! It's a group of stampers who participate in a swap every other month. The hostess sends identical images to all the gals, who in turn create four cards for the swap. It's a mystery what the image will be, and we're not supposed to post a picture of our cards on our blogs/galleries until the swap is due.

It's time!!!

This round was due yesterday -
so I can show you my card!

Sam (way2cute on SCS) was our  hostess and she chose the Stampin' UP! retired Farm Fever image for us. She said she's in a church group called "From the Heart" that sends cards to people who are sick, have had surgery, or just need a pick me up. So I suspect, she's going to use her hostess cards for "From the Heart" ministries. Isn't that cool!?!?!?

Because the little guy is in bed sick, I decided he needed a "bug"... so I used a brad...

Oh, and it doesn't show up in the picture, but I added crystal effects to the thermometer.

Here's the inside of my card:

Yep... that's another "bug" brad. ;)

This was such a fun card to create. I love the image and hope Sam is pleased with my cards.
