it's all about sarah today

Happy Saturday Morning! What are you guys all going to do today? Me? As little as possible! Nah...I hope to get some great stamping time in today! you remember THIS card? Well, it was for a kid's birthday swap that I signed up for on SCS. When Sarah mentioned it I couldn't say no...could I? Anyway, I received my cards back from the swap yesterday and I must say that I love them all!

First, is the contact card that she made for me. When I asked for these cards to be made I asked that they represent who that person is. Sarah made her card with a hen because that is who she is...mama hen to her two beautiful boys and her husband. See the super cute little mice under the hen? cute! Sarah is a very sweet woman whom I hope to meet someday in...wait for it...yep...that is right...Green Bay Wisconsin! You all know how much I love my Packers and she gets to live in the land of green and gold....lucky, lucky girl she is! I try to get back to Wisconsin every other year SO it is a good possibility that we may get to meet at some!

The other card she sent was made with a cute stamp from My Big Idea's and is called Max. It happens to be the stamp I sent Sarah for her birthday. With two very cute little guys at home I thought she might be able to put it to use and she did. I love the way she used the Traffic Jams Cuttlebug folder and cut them out. And the blues...perfect for my house and hers since we both have all boys that we live with. The sentiment is from that cute set I used the other day called Smarty Pants.

So...tomorrow I'll show you three of the cards from the swap and on Monday the last two.

Be on the lookout for some blog candy coming up soon. I have visited several blogs that are giving away blog candy but you have to do something to earn a chance to get it. I just feel like it would be fun for you guys to just try and win strings attached. Anyway, that is coming soon!

***EDITED to add...I've updated the received images on THIS post***
