My 2011 Stampin' Up! Convention Swaps

~ Very Vintage Organized Swap ~

This card was inspired by one of my favorite stamping friends, Diane Dechaine. She taught us how to make sweet peas at a Dazzling Diva downline meeting. I just LOVE making these flowers :)

~ Flowers & Lace General Swap ~

When I received this brand new lace punch, I got right to work with made about fifty of these for swapping and believe me to punch out all of those lace borders takes some good old fashioned muscle...I have to stand up and punch each time and the next day, I felt sore in my arms and legs.

So, if anyone asks me if I get a workout from stamping...they answer is a definite "yes". LOL
