I've Been Hiding ...

... sort of!!! Another busy week at our house! Spent Tuesday through Thursday at a church youth retreat. It was SUCH a great time. We all came home exhausted (which is a sure-tell sign of fun had by all!).

And since yesterday I've been stamping my BRAINS out!! I have to do 138 swaps for Convention ... and not just any ol' swaps ... every swap I am doing is a kinda "wow" sort of thing. I hadn't planned for it to turn out this way, but things sometimes just kind of happen. I have stamped SEVEN different samples. This is one of them. I decided that this was a bit too busy. Turned out a little more detailed than I had planned, but sometimes it's just hard to stop yourself, ya know?? I did another card with the same stamps and color scheme. I was happy with how it turned out, and I'll share it with ya after I swap some at Convention.

I finally have all my swaps planned out. I now just need to cut, stamp, trim, stamp and embellish everything. I hope I can get them all done!!

Stamps: Summer Silhouettes, Curly Cute
Paper: Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White, Summer Smooches DSP
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse
Accessories: Apothecary Accents Die, 3/4" Circle Punch, Punch Pack, Daffodil Delight Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Modern Label Punch, Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Folder
