US Card Swap - June 2010

It's that time of the month when I make all the cards for my swap with other Red Hatters in the USA.  Our theme this month was creating an invitation for the summer.  I made a Pool Part invite for perhaps a lot later in the summer, too darn cold at the moment.

I love the vintage images over on The Sum of All Crafts blog, some SU pumpkin ribbon and punches from Monica and a centre sentiment stamped with a Justrite stamp.  It's such a shame that the postage cost are getting so high to send overseas as I have to weigh my cards before adding any extra embellishments and mostly print direct to the card.  The background is from Pink Petticoats Gingham download.
