This swap is a hybrid swap which means it’s a combination of digital and traditional card making. I have my friend Linda Mountain to thank for helping me with these. i made 60 and Linda cut out all the banners, the DSP and stamped and punched the Petite Petals – thanks so much Linda.

Below is a picture of the… Read more »
