The Stampin' Up! Convention is fast approaching. In just a little over 2 weeks I will be headed to Salt Lake City for this special 25th Anniversary Convention! The past few years I have joined a 3x3 card Swap, it is a highlight for me. This year the total swap cards I need to make is 80. I thought about my card I wanted to make and choose By the Seashore and By the Tide as my sets to use. I have cut all the layers of card stock, stamped everything and am in the process of coloring the crab image using a blender pen and reinker. I showed my husband the sample card to get his opinion and he said he liked it...I said, "well now I need to cut 80 of those crabs out" and he responded, "I'll cut some out, I need to do something while watching the Orioles baseball. Tonight, I came home from work and he was already cutting crabs out.
