Hi! Back again after a short (ahem) delay in programming!! Last weekend on Saturday I had the pleasure of sharing my stamping space with 10 of the loveliest ladies I know! These are some of the members of my MAD Inkstincts Stampin’ Up! team. It’s always a great day when you get together with a group of like minded women!
As part of the day we organised a shoebox swap. If you’ve never participated in one of these before, it’s heaps of fun. Sometimes when i’m with a whole bunch of other people stamping, I get sidetracked watching what everyone else is doing and forgetting that I am supposed to be stamping too! With a shoebox, all the work is done for you. It gave me a chance to make 10 different styles of cards and do things I don’t normally do! (ahem TEARING!) lol. Some things were easier to do than others (TEARING was not easy and I didn’t enjoy it but I DID it!). Annette of Lavender Thoughts is our resident interesting fold girl. She always makes something that stretches our imaginations. I haven’t had a chance to take a photo of the other cards yet but when I do i’ll pop them up for you to see!
Anyway! Here is my swap card. It’s a little left of field for me. Not my usual style, however I loved it. Maybe I need to do this more often! I’d be very interested to know your opinion on this card. I don’t know if the picture does it justice…..let me know what you think!
And here is a little collage of my friends on the day:
I’m sorry if I’m a bit absent at the moment. Classes are due to resume soon. This last little while has been a bit chaotic. My Lara ended up in hospital this week for a virus. And that always makes life tricky. I am hoping for some good crafting time soon!
Until next time!
