So, this year I did not got to convention. Next year I am totally going though! This year, I had a wonderful lady agree to do some swaps for me so I made them up and sent them to her hotel. Little snag along the way, I had planned to work on my swaps the week before convention when I had a couple days off, then ship them that Friday to be waiting for her at her hotel. BUT, my fingertips all swelled up with some kind of hive like thing and they really hurt! No stamping for SEVERAL days... I ended up working hard on stuff Monday and Tuesday morning, then shipping Express mail, but they still didn't get there until a day after the official swap because I got the post office too late in the day to get it there by Wednesday at noon, UGH!
Hopefully this did not turn into a horrible pain for my convention buddy. If I get them all back in a box, it will be what I deserved! Oh well, I tried.
And I bet you didn't know this sentiment would fit in that framelit!
I used markers to color the stamp for a multicolor image. That part I am very happy with. Even though I did it 20 times...when I was in a hurry!
For my prototype, and incidentally my copy, I always make a full card. This is the inside of the card. My white gel pen line got a little crooked so I had to get creative to make it look right, lol.
