Quick post from convention

Here is my other swap card - I made 25 of each card and swapped them all today.  This had a more masculine look with the Night of Navy/Bashful Blue/Pumpkin Pie color combo.  I stamped the compass from Sentimental Journey on Kraft paper and put a rhinestone or pearl in the center.  I stamped various layers of circles and the scallop circle punch for that.  I used a small strip of Travel Journal DSP on the left side.  Next I stamped remember from the In a Word stamp set with Night of Navy onto Bashful Blue cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the scallop rectangle clearlit.  You can see your image as you run it through the Big Shot; it makes it really easy to center the stamped image on the rectangle!  Finally, I stamped the remember word and the Eiffel Tower image from Artistic Etchings in Whisper White onto Night of Navy cardstock and heat embossed both images using Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  I was quite pleased with the result!
I can't resist throwing in a few other pics before I finish.  I don't have much time to post or be on the computer at all for that matter....but here is a pic of my family with Shelli and Sterling Gardner - we had a Flower Power party Wednesday night to kick off the Stampin' Up convention!  It was loads of fun!  As usual, Shelli was darling and sweet and sincere - it is so awesome to be able to say hello to the founding owner of the company you work for!
Finally, just a few pics of the darling birthday ideas I saw!  Cute ways to doll up the kits you can get in the catalogue - you can keep it simple or you can go all out!
