All I can say is thank goodness I am a Fiskateer! Otherwise, I don't know if I would have had any Christmas cards made or if the bug for creating anything would have hit me yet. Today was the first day I felt like making it "look a lot like Christmas." I didn't get a whole lot done in that direction. However, everything from fall is now put away and there are a couple of things in their place to indicate that Christmas is fast approaching!
My goal is to share a few crafty Christmas items I have made in the last couple of months here on my blog over the next couple of weeks.

In this post, I want to share are the great cards from the Snowmen Card Swap I hosted for the Fiskateers. First of all, I want to apologize to Ruby, who made some beautiful cards. Because I was so excited doing my first swap, I don't have a picture of either of the two designs she sent in. Ruby hosted her first card swap right before I did this one, so with that in mind, I am hoping she will know the excitement involved for me. This was a swap where you received the same number of cards you sent in. The choice was six or 12. Because I made 12 cards, I have pictures of 12 cards - somehow, one of them being my own. I was very careful to try not to give anyone else one of their own (unless they requested it) and tried not to give anyone two cards from the same person. And, since I just took the picture today, and I did not wind up with one of Ruby's beautiful cards, I don't have one to show you. The caption under each card is the first name and Fiskateer number of each of the designers. I think all of the participants did a great job! Now I face a delema...do I actually use the cards, or do I hold on to them because they are special to me?
