Good morning everyone, hope all had a fun and relaxing 4th! I am catching up on some challenges this morning (my son is sleeping in after being up so late for fireworks) First card is the sketch challenge 131 from SCS. I used the new In Colors; Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, and Groovy Guava. The stamp set is 'Polka dots & Paisley, then I stamped a paisley background stamp on the Twill tape just to break up the Guava a bit.
Second card is the color challenge, using Choc. Chip, Old Olive, and Pretty in Pink. First time using the chip board I covered it with a glue stick and using a sanding block you sand the edges and the excess paper comes off, looks slightly distress at the edges. The stamp set used was 'Looks like Spring', the coordinating punch and some brads.

Bug Swap

Here is a view of my first ATC (Artist Trading Cards). These little cards are 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 and can fit in a baseball sleeve. I am part of a swap through SCS, Amanda also known as Tropicalchick is putting on a swap for these ATC's. I signed up for the Bug Swap, so we were to use any SU bugs and at least 2 layers of cardstock and 2 embellishments. This is my first swap, so I can't wait to see what I get in return. Which also reminds me that I best be getting super busy to get swaps done for the CONVENTION.....I can't wait!!!!
