Making good friends is even better.
Because I'm a Demonstrator with Stampin' Up!, I go to various events held by Stampin' Up! in different parts of the country. One of those events is Convention. Convention is held in Salt Lake City, Utah, every year.
I met Bev at Convention two years ago. We had so much fun that year -- laughing, eating, stamping, shopping, sightseeing . . . she's a great person. Fun, energetic, quirky. In other words, just right.
We agreed to swap cards together, just Bev and myself, once a month. One of us chooses the stamp set, technique, whatever, and we go from there.
This is one of the cards Bev sent to me . . . Ta Da!!
And this baby's got a matching envelope. Whoo Hoo! I scored.
MmmHmm. Beautiful! I'm so very, very lucky to be friends with Bev and get to swap with her. She used the Stippled Blossoms stamp set and the Ahambra (sp?) wheel. I see the Fancy Fans Embossing Folder on there, and the slider with the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon looks fantastic. So talented.
Here's the link to her blog if you'd like to stop by: www.stampingwithbev.blogspot.com. I visit her blog about two or three times a week. Lots of fun, very newsy. She's one of my best friends, and I don't know what I'd do without her.
Love these little pearls. Say -- want to kick your outfit up a notch? What do you do? Accessorize! Same thing here . . . want to take your cards and scrapbook pages up to the next level? The answer is the same ... accessorize! And that's what Bev did beautifully here.
Rhinestones & pearls - Bev added a subtle accent with the self-adhesive pearls. You can add bling with the self-adhesive rhinestones.
