MN Swap Card #1


Happy Sunday!
I hope everyone's having better weather than we are.....but on the bright side; yucky weather makes a PERFECT stampin' day!!!

My post for today is showing you one of my swap cards that I'm taking with me to the MN SU! Regional this weekend. I cut everything not knowing what I was going to actually do & after toying with it for a while; this is the end result! I'm making 24 of these and then I'll move on to something else......blame it on short attention span or something but I CANNOT make hundreds of the same thing over & over again!! My max is maybe 30 but in this case, I went with however many strips the DSP would give me....smart move if you ask me LOL!!!

I'm off to finish these up; work on more laundry and *possibly* cook. So many distracting things and too little time left before I leave!! I think I'll put my crock pot to good use this week....that'll free up LOTS of time!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
TTFN,
Hugs,

Supplies:

  3. Very pretty Jackie! I can't imagine making so many of the same card, not sure I could pull off 30 let alone 100. I like your idea of making more than one style.
    Have a lovely quiet Sunday.
    Hugs!

  8. Great design and good luck at finishing them all, I also find it difficult to do too many of the same, again I love the colours you used.

  9. Nice job Jackie. I love how you embossed the butterfly then cut it out. Enjoy the Regional. Hopefully Shelly will be there (she wasn't at either of the recent Canadian ones).

  10. Ooh I really love the colours on this card, chocolate chip is one of my faves! The weather isn't *too* bad here in the South East of England, but could be better!

  12. What a pretty card - love that background stamp, I am waiting for it to be delivered right now!

    I totally agree, I don't like making the same thing over and over either. We are creative people after all! :)

    Thanks for sharing - glad you enjoyed your rainy day.

  18. Such a pretty color combo. The embossed buttefly reminds me of Easter chocolate. Boy I could go for some of that right now!

    I mass produce my Christmas cards and usually make about 45 of them. But I really get sick of looking at them after that many. Good for you for being able to create so many of these and for coming up with a plan B so you don't go nuts with only one design.

  19. Beautiful card! Love the Fresh Cuts as the background of the circle. I am with you on making hundreds of the same. I usually make 20-30 of the same and that is plenty! Have fun at Regionals!

  20. this is GORGEOUS Jac...I know what you mean about making the same card repeatedly, I have a few more I'll make again but I don't do "mass" very well...about 6 is it for me! lol

  21. Jackie, love these colors together. I love the background with the butterfly. So pretty!

    I can't make more than ONE! I get restless. There are just SO many ideas that float around in our brains. I won't live long enough if I lived to be 200 to get all the cards done that I want to make!
