Here are the swap cards created by Rachael Brumley and I for the May edition of the Mystery Makery Swap.  Rachael selected the Coffee Helps FSJ stamp set along with the Sunday Adventure Prints double sided paper.  My card is the one on the left and as you can see, I added a little photo holder to make the greeting look like a sign.  Here is a link to see this stamp set:

Rachel’s color selections for the coffee cards include Whip Cream, Lovely Blue, Candy Apple, Dark Roast, and Hazelnut Blend.  We both used Candy Apple Twine and buttons for embellishments. You can get a package of those adorable brown buttons FREE with a $50 order.

Next are the swap cards using my product picks. The stamp set is called Good Karma and again, my card is the one on the left.  In addition to the adorable elephant stamp, the set comes with a couple of small flower background stamps, the Happy Birthday greeting along with two other greetings, and an adorable stack of three suitcases. You can see the stamp set here:,3440,479.aspx
