Taking it back to Leadership...


This was one of the fabulous swap cards that I received at Leadership Convention. I haven't posted it until now as I was planning on using it in my Stamp-a-Stack the second that I saw it. Usually when we swap with someone, there is a recipe on the back of the card that indicates who the creator was as well as all of the supplies used in the card. This particular swap had no information on the back so I can't credit this fabulous idea to anyone, but if anyone out there got a swap with the info please let me know. It is such a simple card to make but looks gorgeous in person. The flower pots are just done using the large oval punch and cutting off the ends! The stamps are from the Pocket Silhouettes set which I get more use out of than you could possibly imagine! The little ledge that the pots are on was done by simply putting a mask over the card base and sponging the colour up and on to the card.

Today is my birthday... don't know whether to be happy or sad... I hate seeing the numbers going up, but I love the excuse to celebrate with family (and eat cake of course). The only gift that I'm asking for is a few hours of uninterrupted stamping time. Doesn't that feel like the ultimate present sometimes?
