A Baker's Dozen - Convention Swaps

The number of amazing cards you see at Stampin' Up! gatherings is mind boggling.  With swaps, display boards, classes and demonstrations there is eye candy everywhere!  I thought I would share some of the swaps I brought home - they are awesome!


The first group of five are from the gals I stayed with at The Monaco. We had a great time together in Salt Lake City!



                   My South Carolina partner in crime and fabulous roommate Dawn Tidd used the USA map beautifully by marking where we all traveled from!



                            Charline Lovell - who is so sassy and such fun -  made a delightful stack of animals for this baby card!



How about this beauty from sweet Sandy Ingbretson?


And that LeAnne Pugliese is as delightful as her confection!


This elegant creation is from Nancy Lempinen who happens to be Nance Leedy's oh so chic mom!



The fabulous Nance Leedy created this gorgeous burst of birthday greetings - and kept me entertained and on track throughout Convention!


The next group of cards are from fellow Pals under Mary Fish.



Pam Morris used a lovely array of colors to send get well wishes.  If you are ever ill, a visit from Pam will definitely cheer you up.   Just thinking about a visit with Pam makes me smile!



This CAS design is from the talented and wonderful Patti Carbonell!



My sweet friend Katy McGloin designed this beauty!




Who knew computer whiz and MDS pro Nicole Watt could also watercolor so beautifully?



And yes Mike Funke is as awesome as his card!


The last two cards are from my friends and teammates at Freshly Made Sketches.  They are an awesome group of gals and I am delighted they let me hang out with them!



Artisan Team member extraordinaire Jen Timko wasn't at Convention this year but managed to surprise me by sending along a card for me via Nance!




This gorgeous creation is from the amazingly talented and delightful Amy O'Neil!  So happy we got to meet in person!





                                 Nance Leedy, Linda Callahan and Amy O'Neill
