Here's the card for SIL. I used my newest set, "You know you're old when....." by Gina K. Designs. This set is a must have for all of you. It is so versatile and funny. Of course, the front of the card doesn't make sense unless you read the inside. I actually found a tutorial that was terrific for sewing on cards. It is by Julia Stainton and was posted on her blog, Belle Papiere, quite a while ago. I just saw it today. You can read it here.
This card, however, also inspired me. Of course, I already had completed my card when I saw this one, but, never again will I throw out my 'goof-ups' and I can only hope that they turn out this cool. I love Cammie's attitude regarding this card.
Cardstock: PTI White Select

Here is the ATC I made for the swap. It's my last swap before going into the hospital and I'm really glad I finished it up so I can pop it into the mail tomorrow.
I just realized that the owl is from the set by Carolyn King (Cammie) which is also offered by Gina K. Designs. Seems I'm a bit addicted to Gina K.'s stuff. I'm not complaining about it. My addiction could have taken a completely different path, so I'll stick to rubber stamping and paper crafting, thank you very much!
The ATC uses the masking technique and three different stamping companies.
