Off to Convention!

I wrote this blog post earlier today and then couldn't find it so I am rewriting it. Maybe I didn't save it. Who knows. I have been busy, busy getting everythig ready to leave for convention. I look forward to Stampin' Up convention every year. It's one of my favorite trips. I'm all packed and ready to go. There are 14 of us in our local group going. Us and thousands of other demonstrators. You all know I always take swaps. It's not required but it's such fun. You make cards or card fronts and then just swap them with other demonstrators. As many as you take will be how many different ones you will bring home. I love seeing all of the ideas and creativity. I have taken as many as 200 in years past but this year I am only taking 70. The good thing is most people will let you take a photo of a card when you see something fantastic and have run out of anything to swap.

For my card swap this year I made a double slider card and used a couple of new stamp sets. Flamingo Lingo is the new Ronald McDonald stamp set. Living in Florida, I especially love the flamingo. If you buy this set Stampin' Up donates $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities. The other new set is Flower Patch.

The grasses were done with a stamp from Wetlands.

Here is the card after the tab at the top is pulled up:

Thanks for stopping by,
