Convention Swaps

I'm going to the Stampin' Up Convention this week.  Chantell is coming too so I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself! I've been busy making cards to swap so here is what I'm taking.

 These little owls are actually magnets that can be taken off the background and on to the fridge.
 Up up and away!

 Here I used pocket silhouette and breyered the background.
 I love making different images with punch art.  Here I've used the butterfly punch as the body for a gorgeous woman.  I think she's waiting for the man of her dreams... or her girlfriends for a great night on the town.
 I made this card for my friend Kim's birthday, here I changed the colours around.

So I can't wait to meet all the other woman and see what creative cards they have made!

From Your Childhood

The theme for April's card challenge with Chantell and Kim was "From your childhood".  This was so much fun because we could think of so many things it was hard to decide what to do.  So here are the results.

 A family friend knitted us all clowns.  Chantell loved hers so much that she slept with him every night.  She used his head as a pillow so much she squashed his nose flat.  The clown she has made here looks so much like her clown!  Hasn't he got a happy face.

Kim loves Ladybugs!  She used to collect them and put them in a jar to keep as pets.  She has made this beautiful shiny ladybug card.  The wings open up to reveal a place to write your message.

I loved to play on the swings.  I had a friend Christine who had the coolest orange swing set.  I loved going to her house.  Here I am swinging with my brother Lloyd, sister Chantell and Christine.

Overnight Card Challenge

Last Month Chantell and I decided to have an overnight Challenge.  We used a card layout from page 55 of the 2011-2012 stampin' up catalogue to inspire us.

 Here is my card.  I liked it so much I decided to give it to my mum for Mothers day.
Chantell made this beautiful card using two step stamping.
