Stamperoo's Christmas Swap Get Together for 2013

Hi Everyone,
I had the most fantastic weekend last week.  On Saturday I attended a stamping day with my Upline Ngaire Anderson and other Demonstrators in her Stamperoo's Group and on Sunday I went to a Ronald McDonald Fundraiser. Check the next post for all of Sunday's details.
On Saturday we had a fun day of stamping and we all prepared a Christmas Shoebox Swap and completed 18 projects.  There were also 6 Swappers, so I came home with 24 projects.  After lots of chatter, stamping and catching up these are the projects we made. My swap was this Gift Card/Money Holder, a very quick and easy project to make.
Stamps: S/U's Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages
Card and Papers: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, DSP Patterns Stack - Neutrals Collection
Ink: Early Espresso
Finishing Touches: Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Holiday Ornaments Framelits, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots
I have created two Collage's for the other cards we made on the day.

Unfortunately I didn't write everyone's name down so if your card is up here with no name let me know and I will add your name. For some of the cards I did add some extra details.
Hope you enjoyed my post and found some ideas and inspiration in our cards.
Thanks for dropping by today. I love to hear from you.
