No takers yet this month? It is alot about food and well we all may be a bit Easter Candy overloaded. There are alot of good swaps going on. But time is ticking. Don't dwell too long or the next swap won't hit until June!:))

Yes every month we have a 1:1 card exchange and it is alot of fun. This belongs to Ms Alsmouse but I am caretaking it for her until she is able to resume the lead. All are welcome and the topics are vote driven and can be wild and crazy at times.
Linda I received your wonderful card and all I can say is I am jealous you must have alot of fun with a cutting system? Very sweet and how much fun a glass of milk to go with!:lovie:
