Convention Swaps Part 2!

Hey there! I am back with the second half of my swaps to share with you! I am not going to go into much detail because I do not want to bore you silly, but if you have any questions please feel free to ask and I will happily respond! Ok, here we go:

This card will be for general swapping, but at the Flower Power party Wednesday night! Flower Power is the theme, 60's is the dress code! I have my hippie chick outfit all ready to go! I figured the card should fit the theme so I went with bright flowers, a 'love'-ly sentiment and of course flowers! :)

This is a simple card using one of the level 2 hostess punch stamp sets. It uses the flower that goes with the BoHo Blossoms punch. I must admit that I didn't think it was anything special until I stamped it and then I was totally awed. It is just so pretty in person! I wanted a crisp color combo and went with Baja Breeze and the new Daffodil Delight! Very happy combo! I think of all of my swaps this may be my favorite one. :)

I am truly smitten with these flowers! They are from a SU! Big Shot die (one whose name completely escapes me right now). LOL I think they are just so pretty together! You get 5 flowers in the one die so you can use them separately or all together! The flower pot came to life because I had some scraps that I wanted to use up and I used the eyelet border punch to create some interesting lines running down the card! Cute, huh?!

This one is for an organized Masculine Card swap. I wanted it to look distressed and a little tattered so I distressed the edges and sponged everything! I used Pocket Silhouettes and the square lattice folder.

This is my "I just landed in Salt Lake City and today is my first day to swap but I am tired from the flight so I wanted to keep it simple swap card"! :) What do you think? One color combo and...

...another! :) Love the butterflies!

Well, there you have it! I loved every minute of making these and cannot wait to trade them in Salt Lake City! :) *bouncing!!!!*

We are leaving tomorrow to stay the night in a hotel closer to the airport because I am flying out of an airport almost three hours away from home. I thought it would be fun for the family to stay over in a hotel and swim in the pool and watch hotel tv! Besides all of flight leaves early and I have to be to the airport at the butt crack of dawn so this will make it easier on everyone. :)

Lots to do so I am out of here! I will be back soonest to check in! Have a great day!
