So we had our Luv2StampinGa Team Meeting last Saturday, and I tell you, we always have a good time. This past one was no different. I have some fabulous Team Members who always are active in participating on most anything.
We had 11 ladies swapping this month, and I will be sharing each card individually with you later on this week. Here is a picture of all the cards swapped, just after we were done voting. I do "we", however, I don't participate in the voting, I just count the votes!
The swaps were absolutely lovely! Each and everyone beautiful, and unique. I love them all. So glad I don't vote, it would be too hard to decide which is my favorite!
My only granddaughter (I have 6 boys and 1 girl)j, has a Big Girl Birthday today, 5 years old! I asked her what kind of birthday she wanted, anticipating it was going to be a princess card, I thought I have this covered. And lo and behold, she says a Troll! I said a what? Princess Poppy, the Troll. I gulp, who the heck is that? You know we grandparents must stay on top of the "latest" and greatest with our grandchildren, and obviously I was not doing a good job!
So I looked up Princess Poppy, Troll. Yeah, well no stamp sets for this little card. All hand drawn and cut, except for a few of the pieces on the card. Now Don't laugh, it's the best I could do in a pinch. Remember, I thought I had this covered, not!
As you can see from this up close shot, it;s a very rudimentary card, but I did it! I used small flowers from the Banquet Bunch Framelits, our 2" punch, Balloon Banquet punch, and a NEW upcoming punch called the Every Day Label Punch! So I guess it worked out. Good thing she is only five, and hopefully won't mind this hand cut, pieced together card.
I will spare you the gory details on how long this took to research, draw, cut/create. Suffice it to say, I am hope she grows out of this one particular "princess" figure. lo
The cardstock colors are Melon Mambo, Marina Mist, Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White , and Daffodil Delight. As always, thank you for stopping by, and hope you will be back soon as I share more details about the Swap Cards from our Team Meeting.
"Blessings, and until the next time, remember to hug the ones you love, "none of us are promised tomorrow!
