Wednesday is my favorite stamping day of the week because it is Freshly Made Sketches day but today is even better because today I leave for Stampin’ Up Convention!! Yea!! First, about the sketch. It is courtesy of the awesome Narelle Farrugia, queen of the elegant card! I knew I would have fun with this one the minute I saw it.
I kept mine pretty simple since I have been running around getting ready for Convention (and flying too). I thought that the prints from Gingham Garden DSP would be perfect for the sketch. I hadn’t used these two and I love them together. Something about the Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight feels like summer to me so I thought a butterfly would be a nice way to accent the card. So another of the prints from the set was run through my Beautiful Wings Embosslit to get the two butterfly layers (they are facing prints). The sentiment is from Six-Sided Sampler, a current favorite. For the banner element, I chose to use some of the Sale-a-bration ribbon with a Daffodil button. That ribbon is so pretty! Yep, a fun and simple little card that just makes me happy!
I will say that the team has created their normal a-maz-ing cards for the week! If you haven’t already, go take a look and hopefully you’ll be able to play along!
Convention!! I am so excited to go that I can hardly sleep! So many of my stamping friends together! I am rooming with my fabulous upline Brandi and the oh-so-talented Heidi Baks. I have swaps with the Control Freaks and all of the Artisan Award Finalists…those are both sure to be jaw-dropping!! And of course, there will be the final announcement of the Artisan Award winners on Friday. Plus, the full, full days of fun and stamping! I FINALLY get to start sharing some of the things I have been working on. Tomorrow I will share my roommate gifts, Saturday I will have my Artisan Finalist swap card and next week lots more. I will only have my IPad with me on the trip and will have my posts pre-written. If there are any big updates, I will do my best to add them in!
Ok, I hope your week is awesome and if you are going to Convention, I hope to see you there! Thanks so much for stopping in. See you tomorrow!
