{It's A S.W.A.K. Down - Are You Ready To Rumble?}

OMG…I've been challenged to a S.W.A.K down! *giggle* Lisa Johnson (the mere typing of her name reminds me of Wayne's WorldI'm NOT WORTHY) has challenged a group of us to a S.W.A.K. down. Check out her blog for all of the details.

What is our special S.W.A.K. down challenge? Lisa Johnson, in her ultimate "craftiness", created the perfect compliment to Papertrey's Heart Tins, which can be found HERE. Aren't they adorable?! She created a template for small note cards that will fit perfectly into the tins for those "love notes" you plan to give. Our challenge was to download the template and create "anything" using this pattern and to use only Papertrey sets.

Here are mine. I did one, and then I thought I might do another - they were too much fun! Which one of mine do you like best? The first one was a single note card mounted onto a Giga Scalloped Heart punched and wrapped with SU! silver cord.

The second project was a mini-book of sorts. I tied two heart note cards together at the top fold with both silver cord and pink organdy ribbon, adorning the cord with some pink beads I had in my stash.

If you would like to join in the S.W.A.K. down fun, just download Lisa's template and link to your blog or gallery either here or on Lisa's blog.

Here are the list of those who were challenged to the S.W.A.K. down and accepted the challenge. Be sure to check out their creations too! They are sure to amaze and inspire you.
