I have been working fast and furious on my swaps for Quarterly. I have a little over a week to get them all done! I signed up for: 3x3 card (11), full card (25), 3D project (15), tags (16) and the shoebox card (31)! Plus someone had to drop out this week & I volunteered to be a "swap angel" and do another 16 tags! Right now, I have completed all except the 3D and the extra tag swap so I am doing ok.
The Southern Living Group that is part of Newcomers is hosting a tea and fashion show next Wednesday. I was honored to be asked to be one of the models. I went for my fitting yesterday at Chicos. I have never shopped at Chicos - mainly because of the price of their clothes but I also find their sizing system very confusing! They don't size their clothes the standard way, like 10, 12, 14, etc. but instead they are size 0, 1, 2, 3! Very confusing for an old person like me! I was a bit leary that the clothes were going to be too "hip" and young for me but I was pleasantly surprised. I ended up buying a pair of jeans even though I don't usually pay big bucks for jeans! But they fit so well I couldn't resist. Everything in the store was 40% off so the $90 jeans were just over $50 after tax. I will be modeling them next week. (Pictures to follow!)
OK - I have more swap cards to share.
I loved this card using the Delicate Ornaments Thinlet Die (pg 15) It also uses the new Curvy Corner Trio punch, The pictures below show the unique fold of this card.
Another great card using the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and Thinlets with the Season of Cheer DSP and another unique fold. But .... can you spot the mistake on this one?
Just the center panel opens. The sentiment is punched out with the new Washi Label Punch (from the main catalog.)
OK - the mistake that I see is the DSP on the left side is upside down!
