A Swap For All Seasons

The theme for the month of June in A Swap For All Seasons was "It's A Guy Thing". Destash was a little bit of black and/or gray.  I think it was a bit more of a challenge for most of us. I know I don't create "guy" cards very often.  But, it actually turned out to be kind of fun.
Here's a look at the card, tag, and destash sent to me by Jayne of Cardznmore.   I love the sports theme that Jayne used....especially the old time feel of it!   I use a lot of the muted red, white & blue colors in my family I immediately knew the perfect place to display this card and tag. Bill's birthday falls on Father's Day this year....and that just so happens to be the day after Flag Day!  All of this together will equal a cute display!


Jayne spoiled me with lots of fun destash.  I love the felt bows....and the paper cuttings are beautiful. I can't wait to use them in some new project. The little girl with the sheep will be perfect mounted on some pretty paper and the framed.

I sent my creations to May over at May's Happy Daze, and I was so happy to hear that she liked the card, tags, and destash she received from me. 

I usually keep my cards and tags pretty simple, and this month was no exception.  I really love how the tag turned favorite part is the three inches of wooden ruler that I glued on. The image on the card is one of my favorites! 

Finding gray and black supplies in my current stash sounded to me like it was going to be tough. But I once I started digging through my stash, I found lots of things to share.

A Swap For All Seasons is the best swap ever....a huge thank you to Linda for faithfully organizing us ever month!!
Linda, you have the best ideas ever!!

I would have had a hard time with coming up with something for a guy theme. Why is it that's always so hard? Both of you did amazing with your cards and tags. I love the piece of ruler on yours.

I felt the theme this month was more fun than I would have thought. Love that sweet (but strong) little boy image and the ruler is very cool! Jayne's card, tag and destash are fun, too. Love those speech bubbles. Have fun with your new treasures.
I am so far behind with blog commenting but I've been reading. Love your posts, Marie!
