Convention, here I come!!!

Now you all know why I haven't posted much - too busy making swaps and preparing for Convention! In a few short hours I will be getting on a plane for SLC!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! :-)

Now of course since this is my first conventin I signed up for waaay too many swaps! ha ha 
Well they are finally all done and labelled and in my carry-on ready to go.  Here's a couple of them for (hopefully!) your viewing enjoyment!

This was made with the new Circle Circus set - LOVEZIT!! And of course anyone who knows me knows that purple is my favourite colour! This new Rich Razzleberry is to-die-for!! And the polka dot grosgrain ribbon is really nice to work with. I had to use Confetti white for this card as I ran out of Whisper White! It's a little thicker card stock though so it worked out fine!

Here's another card I whipped up for general swapping. I love the combo of red, white and black - very classic! This uses the Eastern Blooms set as well as the (fairly) new eyelet border punch and scallop oval punches. I love anything with scallops! Adds a little touch of elegance I think.

This last card is for a WOW! organized swap. What is a WOW! swap? Well it's a card or item with extra touches on it. It could be a cool technique, a neat fold, but when you look at it you say, Wow! :-)  This has a lot (and I mean a lot) of Big Shot work on it. I think I wore out a set of cutting plates just on this card! I used the Tea Party DSP which I love, and the card stock that co-ordinates with it. The embossing folder and sizzlets I used are exclusive to Stampin' Up!

Ok, I am off to finish packing - next update - from Salt Lake City!
