Convention 2014 Swaps

So, as a "new" Stampin' Up! demo I get to go to convention FOR FREE! How fun is that??? I wouldn't be able to do it except for the fact that we're having a big family reunion in Utah the same weekend! The stars have aligned. ;) haha. After attending the 2014 catalog release party, I'm REALLY excited for it! I'm a little nervous though. Anyway, I decided (last minute) to make a few cards to swap. So here they are!  I was actually surprised how fast I put these together! There are about 30 of them. I'm excited for the cards I'll receive in return, and the friends I'll make while I'm there!



I used one of my all time FAVORITE stamp sets! I recently needed a sympathy card, and this is a GREAT sentiment image! Everyone needs something beautiful during a time of sadness right? I love the sentiment and the reminder that whatever you're going through, it WILL pass, and if we can endure the trial, there will be blessings beyond our imagination! LOVE this stamp set. And the new in-color Blackberry Bliss?!?! FAVORITE! So lucky that I won that ink pad (and 2 others) at the catalog release party!

Are you ready for your close-up? haha.
