These are some of my favorite swaps I received over the last 2 months.   Most are created by a talented group of stampers out of state and we swap monthly.  (Thank you, Rhea for organizing us each month!)  I love getting them in the mail!

Stamped by Sharon Burkert.  The cute stamp set is from the Holiday Mini catalog (avail Sept 1) called Twick or Tweet. The Basic Grey card stock background is stamped with the coordinating wheel called Haunting Hill.  Don’t you love the wide striped ribbon?  It is 1-1/4″, 10 yards for 8.95 in 4 colors.  See them all here

Look at the fun detail!  She used Stampin’ Up new designer paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog called Night & Day.  It has the cool houndstooth design she used for the bird. She cut out the pumpkin treat basket and used Crystal Effects on it for the glossy shine.
