GoDiva's Swap

Gretchen Barron

I am back from my family trip to Disneyland,  what an incrediable 4 days we had!  Hard to come back home to 40 degree weather compared to the 80's we were in.   I thought I would share over the next few days the cards from our recent GoDiva's Occassion mini swap.  This is an incrediably talented group of women.  You are going to love what I have to show you!   I'll post more tomorrow as there are 30+ gals in our group

Valentine Nail Files

Found these cute Valentine nail files at Target in the dollar area, you get 6.
I used the new Framelit Heart Die that is in the Occassions Mini catalog.  It is a great tool as you can place the hearts anywhere on your card to cut it out.  It is used in conjunction with the Big Shot.   I cut the hearts on the fold so that I could easily fold them over the cello bag and decorate them.  

Stamp Sets:  P.S.  I Love You  Wood: #125460 Clear# 125462
Accesssories:  Heart Collection Framelit Die  #125599 , Dazzling Details Clear
