Freaky Swap from Germany!!

Smiley from millan.netGreetings and Guten Tag from Munich, my friends!! I cannot actually BELIEVE that I am HERE!! What a looooonnnnggg trip getting here was! I'm still in the wrong time zone (it is currently 12:30 a.m. here, but for me it is only 4:30 p.m., so I'm not sure WHERE I am!! In about 6 1/2 hours I get to pick up my son (aka the Butterfly Boy!!)! This just seems so unreal . . . but I digress . . .

I made this card for the most recent Control Freaks card swap (we were focusing on sets from the new SU Holiday Mini Catalog). I realized as I was just uploading this photo that it is not QUITE the swap I sent to everyone (this was my prototype card. I was in such a hurry to grab a photo before I left that I didn't realize I had grabbed the wrong one!). Really, the only difference is that I had rock-n-rolled both of the leaves that are cut out. One was stamped in Soft Suede and rolled with Rich Razzleberry on the edges; and the other was stamped in Rich Razzleberry and rolled with Soft Suede on the edges. I started to do that with this prototype, but didn't quite do it all the way . . .

I also used the old "joy fold" card. Haven't done one of those in a long time. Since I am not at home, I can't go and measure the dimensions on this for ya! Darn! No good stamper should EVER leave home without her proper tools (I hang my head in shame!!)! I can't believe I don't have a SINGLE stamp with me . . . I am hoping that we will be SO busy with touring and visiting that I won't have time to notice that I am gettin' the shakes!!

Stamps: Autumn Splendor, Grateful Greetings
Paper: Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Modern Label punch, Large Oval punch, paper distressing tool, small clear ice rhinestone brad, kraft taffeta ribbon, horizontal slot punch, dimensionals

AND STAY TUNED FOR THE UGLIES, BABY!!! I promised I would share some of my first-ever creations, and I'm going to make good on that one!! They ARE scary, though, I'm warnin' ya . . . Smiley from

Lucky you, being in Germany, I can't even get out of Ohio for a long week-end. The card is lovely.
