Here are the swaps from our weSTAMP get together this month. CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS in the previous post to see the fun PARTY we had! 🙂
The theme for this month was using punches as the focal point of the card. I LOVE what the gals came up with this month!!!

Linda B’s swap:
If you remember my “Sweet Scoops” card (found HERE), you can see I used the same folding technique for this card. The punched monkey part of this card I found on Stampers Showcase, which is a website available to Stampin’ Up demonstrators. That’s why I can’t put a link here, but her name was Nicole Papolio. She was so sweet to email me the sizes of all the punches she used on her monkey.
