Show & Tell: Sympathy Card Swap

Getting ideas for sympathy cards is sometime difficult.  And having to come up with an idea for a sympathy card when you actually need it can be daunting.  Well this month's card swap is designed to help you with that.

Every month, I host a card swap.  This is where crafters from all over the country create 5 beautiful cards, all of the same design, and send them to me in the mail.  Then I take those 5 cards and swap them out with 5 different cards from the other crafters.  I absolutely love seeing all of the cards come in.  It is a special treat for me each month.

My next favorite thing to receiving the cards and sending them back out, is sharing with you the work that was sent in. We have some really creative crafters in our group! I hope to see you at our next swap!



This month I asked the crafters to send me a 6th card if they wanted me to showcase their work on my blog.  Between the cards I swapped myself and those who sent me the extra 6th card. I think I got almost everyone's card to create this blog post.

You can see a video on how I host a card swap here.

I love highlighting different crafters on my blog and youtube channel (see below), I had some cards that did not have names on them. Ugh… So that being said, some of these cards below I don't know who to give credit to.  So if one of these cards are yours… then let me know and I'll update this blog post.
