Cards for a Swap

I wanted to share some cards that I made for a card swap that I just participated in. I really had fun making them and getting some cards in return. I will post a picture of the cards that I receive when I get them all.

I wanted to know if anyone is interested in a swap for the youth. My daughter really wants to have a swap for her age group. Age 8 and up. Or just participate in a swap if people don't mind receiving a card from a 10 1/2 year old. She tried to have one at school. She enlisted about 10 girls, but they just ripped out some binder paper and drew or wrote something on it and quickly handed it to her. This was after she worked really hard all week long making these cards for them. She felt cheated, but I did tell her that everyone may not know how to make a nice card with card stock and to not hold it against them. She tried a few more times after explaining how to make one, then she gave up and is now begging me to post about having a card swap for youth.
So if you are interested please email me at
islandgurls at hawaii dot rr dot com, or leave me a comment with your info.
She would be your best friend eternally!!!

Spring Beauty Layout

Aloha Everyone,
I hope everyone is doing well and in good health. I have not posted anything in so long I almost forgot how.
I am sorry for being MIA.
The whole Feb. my whole house got sick, and in March spring break came along and my mom came to visit. I thought I would have more time crafting but that was not the case.
I have had 2 birthdays and another one this weekend.
We have been busy having sleep overs and party projects.
Life can sure get busy!!! But, I do love it.
Now on to my project it is my Design Team project for Crop Chocolate. I love that store. Check it out, it can be addicting.

I used Basic Grey Paper in Ambrosia, and BoBunny Wraps from Gabrielle.
I made the flower using the Cricut Mother's Day Bouquet.
The butterfly was cut using my Gypsy and the Cricut Indie Art butterfly. It was stretched.
