The beginning of this week saw me finishing my cards for my very first card swap!!! YAH - And I am quite proud of myself if you don't mind me saying LOL. You can't really see it in this photo, but I have stamped bottom half of the card with the same stamp as the white part using VersaMark ink. (I am finding that I use VersaMark on nearly every one of my cards) and the flower with the brad is raised up on a dimensional.
When I first signed up I thought "This would be fun" HA!!! No only kidding - it wasn't that bad - but I did get the jitters as I'm still not all that confident yet about my cards.
Before I actually started making the cards for this swap, I signed up for another one (sucker for punishment!!!) - but you will have to wait till after the weekend to see that one - don't want to spoil the surprise LOL - I will be receiving the the returned swaps for the second one over the weekend so I will put them on then to show you all.
After doing the two lots of swaps this week, I take my hat off to all the creative people who went to Convention - I bow to you all - It must have taken you all absolutely AGES to make all those swaps for Convention. If I'm going next year then I had better start now!! LOL
