Card Swap and Birthdays

These are cards I'm making for a card swap I'm in. I think they turned out really cute, although I wish I'd have used some 3d foam dots to attach the birds - they would have been cuter with some dimension.

I have another set of cards to make for the same swap, and I'll post those when I'm finished. The best part of swaps is getting to see the great artwork that I get back!

These are a couple gift card holders that I made for birthdays. I think I'll make some of these for craft shows this fall. They're simple yet a little bit elegant.

Finally, these are some water bottle hangers I made for a friend's birthday at work - I made a total of 14. I ended up taking 1 packet out because the adhesive wasn't holding as securely as I would have liked. Next time I make them, I'll use super sticky tape...or just keep the drink packets to 2. I'm thinking I may make some of these for craft shows, too, although I'm not sure how well they would sell. (Ignore my finger in the 2nd picture - I was too lazy to get a full water bottle!)

Thanks for looking!!
