Convention Swap #1

Hi Everyone!

So the stress of swaps has once again taken over!  Most people start their swaps looooonnngggg before now...BUT I'm one of those people that has to feel the pressure of an approaching deadline to really be productive, soooooo I started today.  I leave for convention in 12 days and only have 2 days off work between now and then (one of which will be my Stamp Club) so the pressure is really kicked up a notch!  Why oh why do I do this to myself!?!? 

Anyways, enough about me...Let's get to that card!  I used the Baby Tees jumbo wheel and the Short & Sweet stamp set for my stamping.  The beautiful card shape was cut with the BIG SHOT and the Scallop Square die.  I also used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder for a little added texture.  And of course I used some of the new colours!!!  Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Cherry Cobbler, and Wild Wasabi. 

So what do you think everyone?  Do you think I'll have people want to swap with me? 

Happy Stampin'


  1. Cute :) I think it will be nice in any colour. Guess I haven't checked your blog in a while. Like those shares especially the paper one.

  2. Hey Allison....I feel your anxiety about working so close to deadlines! I do the same thing, too! But your waiting for inspiration worked, because they're a totally adorable swap, and I think everyone will love them!

    Have you Stampede-d yet? I'm hoping to go on Saturday, weather it's been so un-July-ish here!

    Glad I happened upon your blog, from Paper Punch Addiction. I'll be around more often!

  3. Hi Chris!

    I did get to stampede for one evening after work, but my husband and I were so exhausted that we didn't stick around for very long. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and I very much appreciate your comments!
