My Simple Swap for Jody

So due to the fact that Jody and I (her more than me) have been busy lately, we have decided to go down to one item a month. I was seriously having stampers block, but I did manage to make this simple frame for Jody using some fun paper I got at my LSS and my Simon chipboard alphas that I got from my DDSS last round.

The frame was one that my friend gave to me to "do something with." The ribbon is celery and chocolate grosgrain and some pink stitched with chocolate ribbon by American Crafts. On the letter "J" I stamped a flower from SU "Polka Dots and Petals" from the new spring mini catalog (you can't see it in the picture but you can in real life) and then in the center of each flower I put a white dot using my gelly roll pen. Really simple, but I still think Jody will like it! *smiles*

Jody sent me the most gorgeous item which you can view HERE.

You don't have to be special, but you do have to donate to SCS. You get the Dirty Dozen gallery as a kind of BONUS for your donation to the site and it is worth it!!!
