May Secret Sister Swap

The Secret Sister Swap is so much fun especially not knowing who is my Secret Sister until the happy mail arrives.   Well, this month, I was Valerie's secret sister.  The theme was "birthday."   That was perfect because I was able to ink up "Tilly with Gift" by Wild Rose studio which I just bought from Eva recently.   Thank you Eva!  Also, be sure to visit her new Etsy Store "Simply Made Hawaii" featuring her beautiful handmade crafts....so awesome!

This stripe DP by Doodlebug really caught my eyes.  Just love the rainbow of colors.  Also, added a floral texture for the background using one of the embossing folders by Sizzix from my sweet cuz.

Other ingredients:
Edge punch by Stampin' Up
Word Bubble by Stampin' Up
Sentiment by Studio G
Candy bead embellies - RAK

These are the RAKs I included with my card.

When I received my happy mail from Mary Bennett, I was overjoyed with this awesome nostalgic easel card.   I do remember F.W. Woolworth store and their restaurant.  My friends and I enjoyed the best hot dogs on the YUMMIEST bun there.

And here's the card opened.   Even the Coca-Cola cutout stands up

Will enjoy some fruity tea that she sent too.   Thank you so much Mary!!!

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!

It's always fun receiving happy mail especially if it's from the Secret Sis swap. It's always a special treat to see what my swap partner makes and is surprising me with.

What you received and made is great. The dog on your card is super cute. I like the background that you embossed and the fun striped borders.

Totally cute swap shares Karen! I love that we don't know who we have until we open the packages.

My grandmother used to work there! Wish I had gotten a chance to eat at the diner. Have a great weekend!!
