Banners are Back, Convention Swaps, Card Making Fun!

Hi, Stampers!

Yayyyyy!  My banners came back, my blog was restored and all is well with Visa and Paypal.  (Darn hackers!!)  That's life these days, isn't it!

I'll be off to Atlanta on Thursday for Onstage fun!  A great opotunity to learn new techniques and to peek at new product awaits!!  Here are my swaps!  I only made around 45.  The lollipops make them bulky to pack but I love making those little pockets and swappers enjoy receiving them.  

Of course I have to bring out my retired chocolate bunny stamp.  He is so cute and so versatile.  I also used a very vintage little flower stamp that I keep in my kit.

Here is our "pretty" Easter card.  It gave us a chance to use our Stampin' Blends.  I look forward to their return at the end of May!
I used crafty SIL's fold idea again.  I love it!  Thank you Cindy Davis!!

I'm also loving the Sale-a-Bration floral foil papers.  They are so elegant on their own and so beautiful when you take your Stampin' Blends to them.  This card is inspired by my friend, Oksana Semenska's, design.  So fun! See more of Oksana's beautiful creations at

Here is another of our class projects.  I just love this little mermaid but I would feel badly if I trapped her in the bottle, so I gave her a heart background instead.  We "hand carved" our waves with our bone folders since yours truly forgot the embossing folder we were to use.  Thank you, Ranell Schlatter, for the great idea!!
I always told my junior high choir students that I got my best ideas from them and the same is true with my stampers!!

 Coming up this week we'll be brave and make a Brusho card.  We'll also make a pretty friend or Mother's Day card using the stamp set "A Mother's Flair".

Have a great weekend!!
