Diva Swap....

Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope you're all off to a great week.....so far mine is going well & I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an excellent week all the way through! Why? My younger 2 start school on Thursday & that will be a bit of a transition for all of us. I really love having them @ home with me so it's always bittersweet for me when school starts. I'll be counting down the days for when there's no school for Holidays and finally summer break LOL!

Anywhooo, onto my post for today. We have our downline meeting tonight and we swap cards @ this event.....I totally did NOT feel like making anything since I'm still recouping from all the Convention hoopla & the hundreds of swaps I made BUT my 2nd & 3rd level uplines always have the cutest cards as do my downlines Teresa & LaToya! I had to make a few so I wouldn't feel completely left out ROFLOL!!! I used another one of the stampsets we received @ Convention called Hello Again---I LOVE it---to make my simple swap card. Yes, I said simple but it has texture, a couple of layers & I think it's pretty cute---besides, that's about all they're going to get out of me right now!!!!

I need to gather my notes and a few projects to share from Convention so I better get going. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!
TTFN,
Hugs,

  2. This is so prety, Jackie, just love the colors and textured layer. I just posted the post-conv. meeting I went to over the weekend on my blog with the swap I made. My up-line was the only one who went this year so she had the meeting at her lovely home and we had a very small group but tremendous fun learning about all the conv. details....maybe next year....
