Summer Lovin'

Love the summer smooches dsp and the matching Bright Blossoms stamp set.  That's what I chose for my second swap card--which is a totally different style--bright with cleaner lines than my first swap I showed you yesterday.

The framelit is from the new Apothecary collection and the thanks is from Kindness Matters.  Add a little bling and bam!  Colors used were:  Pacific Point, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White.  I'll be back tomorrow with my swap for a Wow card that I made--didn't get most made up due to getting sick, but boy do I have all the pieces for it everywhere!

What do you do.....

....with swaps, when you have no one to swap with?  Here's my first card that I created--yes--I'm in shock here too, but I worked on coming up with some original ideas for once and am pretty pleased with the results, but, back to my first sentence.  I don't need 27 identical friend cards and 27 identical thank you cards.  To be honest they are card fronts, but that's a minor detail!  Ha!

This uses the new Storybook dsp, vintage trinkets, stripes impression folder, Tiny Tags and Greeting Card Kids

Depressing News.....

Stampin' Up Convention is this week.  I was supposed to go there and have the time of my life with Deb.  That all changed when I got the news that my 3 days of high fever equalled a diagnosis of pneumonia.  I'm not going anywhere--except the Dr.'s office.  Hopefully not the hospital if the meds do their trick.  So not only am I out the money I paid for the convention registration, but I've also got to figure out what to do with all the swaps I created.  I haven't posted in awhile because I was busy least I didn't go crazy and make a huge amount!  I'll be back soon when I feel better to post pictures of them.
