In With the New Swap–Group One

This was my second year hosting this swap, and once again, these were the best cards I received at convention!  Thank you to everyone that participated, I hope you join me again next year.

The rules of this swap are that the main stamp set of the card must be one that was not ever available before July 1st 2011.  This means that everyone had to expedite their orders and only had a few days to make them, although they had up to a month to plan and prep. 

I think these girls did an AWESOME job!  Let me know what you think.
