Today was the first day of the annual Stampin’ Up!© convention. I’ve never been to one, but it sure sounds like a lot of fun! Maybe someday. I have a swap buddy who will do some swapping for me. What in the world does that mean, you ask? Well a swap is just what it sounds like. You make one card or card front for each person participating in the swap. They each get one of yours and you get one of each of theirs. Angie, our wonderful hostess at Stampin’ Addicts, held an NCG Swap (non-convention goers). We all mailed them to her and she sorted them all out and sent them all back. I got mine today. So I got to do some swapping during convention, even though it’s not at convention. The cards I got back are fabulous! I’ll have them out for display at my next class if you want to see them.
This is the card I sent. The requirements were current items only and there had to be something new from the 2009-2010 catalog. I used all new In Colors. I’m really pleased with how they came out. I stamped the tree first, then cut into 3 strips.
