Right now I am on the 2017 SCRAP & PAPER Caribbean Cruise with my neighbors and husband holding down the fort at home. Today we are boarding the ship. Tomorrow will be our SWAP-A-THON. I entered two of the swaps. The Thank You and Christmas Card Swaps. I wanted to show you what was made for tomorrow's Thank You card swap. I am sure I will have many more to show in future posts, but tomorrow I will be swapping this card for others. The best part of this cruise will be seeing old friends and meeting new friends. Tomorrow I will show you my Christmas Card Swap.
Thank you for stopping by today. Please subscribe to this blog at the right (at least on my laptop it is located on the right) so you do not miss anything.
