Need your opinions...

I really need some opinions on doing cards for a swap I am in. I was THRILLED to have been contacted by some girls on SCS after seeing some of my cards during the DTGD Challenges!
Anyway the swap is for Penny Black. I have a few Penny Black Snowmen stamps but that's it. So my swap will be with those for sure. I've never done a swap before...EVER! I don't really know what I'm doing but what the heck eh?!

I came up with these two cards so far. Figure I'll play around a bit and then decide. I can ALWAYS use snowmen cards!

What I am wondering is what you think of these two cards. Are they what swaps are made of? Am I missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated ;)

I finally got some of the Cosmo Cricket Wanted DP! YAH! I really like this paper. It will go great with the Stampin' Up! Western Sets from the new catalogue.

I used Choc Chip and Close to Cocoa. Pulled out the HodgePodge Hardware again too! I never liked using it before because it cost so much but then I realized....I bought it to USE it!

Today on Rose Ann's site Paper Delightz she showed how she made a buckle with the key tag punch. I was going to do it but then didn't really know what to do with it on this card. So I used the shape and left it plain. Thanks Rose Ann for the tip!

I think your cards are fantastic. If I was in your swap group, I would be thrilled to receive either one of those snowmen cards.
