Happy FRIDAY!! WOO HOO!! The weekend is here and I hope you are planning on doing something fun!! I'm going to have a fabulous weekend!! I'm off to spend the weekend with my Mom and Sis. My Sis is pregnant and we're having her baby shower on Sunday. I'm so excited!!

Ok, I'm sure you're not here to find out my weekend plans so...here are my July MISS Swaps. Check out these awesome cards!! Remember, if you want to join an incredible swap, Jeanna Bohanon hosts an amazing swap every month. Although, I think she's taking August off. You know...she just found out she's PREGNANT!! Yeah Jeanna!! Congratulations!

Flower Brad Earring Jacket

Ok, you may think this is a little weird but after seeing all of Shelli's earrings from convention I came up with this idea. I've loved our flower brads since they came out and use them whenever possible. Now I can wear them every day! :0) These little filigree brad "jackets" are just the perfect size to wear as earring jackets. They're a little heavier than most "post" earrings so just be sure you have screw on backs or really tight backings. I wore them today and got 3 compliments!! So, tell me what you think...am I loosing it or do you think this might be something you would do?
Have a wonderful week!!

Butterfly Tag

Happy Saturday!
Here's a little project I've had in my head for a while now. Using the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterfly Die for the Big Shot I created this beautiful butterfly tag. I cut a piece of Razzleberry Lemonade DSP to 4" x 6". Folded it in half on the 6" side then fold in half on the 4" side. Lay it on your die with one fold just below the top of the butterfly cut marks and the right side fold just inside the cut marks. Roll it through your Big Shot and you'll get this cute little butterfly "card" that measures about 3" x 4". This would be awesome for a gift tag, an embellishment for a scrapbook page, a little note for your child's school lunch or your husband's briefcase. I'm sure you can come up with lots of other ideas for this cute little tag. Well, I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by to see me today!

One on One Swap Anyone?

Happy Saturday!!
I had to cancel my trip to convention at the last minute so I've got about 50 swaps I'd like to trade. If you would like to swap with me, one on one, I'd be happy to send you one of these card fronts. Just leave me a comment here to let me know you're sending me a swap and when I get your card I'll send you one of mine. I need you to leave your name AND email in the comment section so I can keep track of how many card fronts I'll be sending and so I can send you my address. When you send your swap please be sure your snail mail address is on the envelope so I can send your card. I've only got about 50 so I'll cut it off at that number. All I ask is that your swap uses all CURRENT stamp sets, cardstock, ink and embellishments. Nothing retired please. These card fronts can easily be made into a full card. All you need to do is cut it down on the sides and top and bottom and layer it on a full card. I can't wait to see what you've made! Have a wonderful weekend!!
