Swaps are done!

Yes, I said it!  AND....I still have 5 days before I leave for Convention!  I know, I must be careful or I will ruin my reputation as Queen Procrastinator!

With the help of my many Stampin' Fairies, we were able to get all three organized swap projects done - assembled and bagged, PLUS about 50 of a general swap cardfront, because you know "swapping" is what Convention is all about!

This card uses the new Delicate Doilies stamp set that is in the NEW Idea Book and Catalog, and sports new In Colors Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral!  I used a Concord Crush card base and ribbon.  The sentiment is from a hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes.  I added some bling in the form of rhinestones to the tops of the packages.  I still have hopes of making a few more of these for the general swapping, but if it doesn't happen I am okay with it!

We had a great 4th of July holiday, going downtown with DS and DDIL and watching people and fireworks.  It made for a loooong day, as I realized at 10:30 pm that I had Christy's workshop the next evening, AND I had nothing designed!  Needless to say I was up late! :-)  We had a great workshop, with 13 people stamping, and many kids and young people downstairs - I think she said there were a total of 37 people there - and her house is not huge! LOL!  Regardless, everyone had a great time and she is a super hostess!

I'll close with firework pictures - not super great, but at least not totally blurry!  I plan to take my laptop to Convention - (since I have signed up for a My Digital Studio class I guess I should) - so look for posts direct from Salt Lake City!
