Craft Mad Monthly Swap

Our April Craft Swap at Craft Mad  was a blind swap with us having to make two cards which were not square or rectangle. A bit of a challenge, made us all think outside the box a little, I think. Check out the gallery for some of the amazing cards our members came up with.
These are my "not square or recatangle" cards

These are the beautiful cards I received . Can you guess who they are from??

Create and Chat

Over at Craft Mad we have our Create and Chat nights where we get together online and make a project and catch up with each other, have a gossip and a giggle.
 On our last C&C night Kerry showed us how to make this cute photo frame, just in time for Mothers Day
