Swap Time

Hi! Hope today finds you well!!

I recently did a swap with a group of friends. Now, typically I have no problem participating in a swap. BUT - this time it was for the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog, and I actually didn't have any of the stamp sets at the time *the horror*!!!! My friend Suze hosted the swap. She said she could stamp off some images for me and send them so I could participate! WOOHOOOOOOO!!!!

So I received my image - it was from the stamp set "For Father". I was nervous - NERVOUS!!!! The image was stamped on SU!'s watercolor paper. I'm not so great at watercoloring. And it's not like I HAVE the image to stamp again once I screw up!!!! LOL

I actually like how it came out. The coloring wasn't horrific - I actually had fun coloring the images. That watercolor paper is WONDERFUL! I also used the background stamps "Twill" and "Sanded" from Stampin' Up! The swap was complete and I LOOOOOOOOVE the cards I received in return!

Thank you Suze!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a beautiful day! :)
