Simply Sunday: Retreat Card Parade!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I thought it would be fun to share more cards from our Retreat Attendee Card Swap! My guests are so talented and I love seeing all the different styles.

Enjoy ….

Love this card …. It was made by Carol who used the Cottage Wreath Bundle. This is also a fun fold card … The white piece opens to the right and exposed the greeting.

This stunning card was created by Meg … She used the “Timming the Tree” set from the Annual Catalog. Don’t you just love the multiple colors of green she layered on her tree?

If you are a fan of the more whimsical Christmas Cards, then Lynne’s is right up your ally. This is the “North Pole Mischief” Stamp set found on page 37 of the Mini Catalog.

I saved this last card because it brings me memories of my grandparents ….

Although grandpa and grandma did not have a sleigh, memories of being on the farm with my grandparents was priceless. A winter wonderland is how I always pictured Christmas with them. Someday … I’m going on a sleigh ride!!

Thank you for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed the Swap Cards as much as we all did!

Have a great day ~

Here are the stamps sets and bundles used on today’s cards ….
