cupcake shoebox swap
This was my shoebox swap card for the Minnesota SCS Summer Stamp Fest this past weekend. We had a Stampin' Up! only shoebox swap and an Anything Goes shoebox swap. We were a little short in the Anything Goes swap so I joined it. It gave me a chance to play with my non-Stampin' Up! goodies. The stamps are *gasp* acrylic stamps. I'm not a big fan of acrylics but the cupcake images were so cute I made an exception and bought them. What was the most fun was to play with my cuttlebug. I haven't used it in so long.
Tomorrow I'll show you the 12 x 12 page I made for the 12 x 12 swap. It's using some of the new Stampin' Up! in colors. I'm loving those!
My family gets back from camping today. They have been gone since Sunday and I have been home alone. I have hardly left the house. I have been stamping my convention swaps. I have made great progress there.
I had a scare yesterday while I was home alone. The house was all locked and I was down the basement stamping, talking on the phone and watching tv. All of a sudden I heard footsteps upstairs. I told my girlfriend to stay on the line. I had a moment of panic. I decided to call up the stairs ' "Hellooooooo". It turns out it was my nephew, Michael. He stopped in for a fan to bring to my dh. They were camping just an hour away and Michael was driving there for the day. I guess he rang the doorbell but I can't hear it down the basement. My husband gave him the garage code and that is how he got in. Whew! There was some heart pounding moments.
