CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Hi all!! Well, right now I am probably winging my way to Convention - whoohoo!!! I can't wait to see all my friends - my upline, downline, sidelines, there will be 18 of use there, some of whom I have only met through email so I am super excited!!! And, I get to meet some fabulous women in person for the very first time after talking to them online for almost a year!!! So, can you tell, I am excited - LOL! Since I am on my way to Convention, today I will share another swap card I made using the stamp set called Fun and Fast Notes. This is one of my favorite sets! I just love how versatile it is and I use it a lot!! Nothing to difficult (swaps can't be, not with me anyway, I make 20 of each) but I will leave you the recipe! Don't forget the blog candy, I will draw the winner when I get home!!!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Handsome Hunter, Bravo Burgundy, Naturals White card stock, Holiday Happenings Designer Series Paper
Stamps - Fun and Fast Notes
Inks - Handsome Hunter Classic stampin pad, Bravo Burgundy Stampin' write marker
Accessories - Bravo Burgundy narrow grosgrain ribbon, Ticket Corner Punch, Photo Corners Punch
