Well, hello there! I decided it was time to dust off the ol' keyboard and peek in on my little blog here. Sorry that I've been away so long - it's the same old story of sick kiddos and life kind of got away from me. But, I did get a chance to share in the fun at the Milwaukee SU! Regional last Saturday. Oh, my, what fun! My mind is brimming with all kinds of creativeness and I can't wait to hit my craft room. I thought I'd share a couple of the swaps I made for the Regional. I used the same layout and stamp sets for both cards, but I changed the colors and you'll see what a difference this makes.
Card #1 is a swap I made for the the bus ride to the Regional event. What a fun group of ladies! I had such a great time making new friends and chatting all the way down and all the way back home again. I used the "rock-n-roll" technique on my flower.
Card #2 is the swap I made for my Madison group of demo friends. I love both of these cards - I don't think I could pick a favorite!
I'll be back soon to share some more swaps and other fun ideas. 'Bye for now!
