Card Swaps, Part Deux!

Tonight I'm sharing a few more cards with you.  The first three are from the impromptu swap at the Catalog Premiere event and the last card is the card I received in a one for one swap hosted by Brian King.  Brian is a demo in Atlanta Georgia.

Catalog Premiere - A Recap!

Last night was the Catalog Premiere event for demonstrators across the country.  What a great time!  Not only did we all leave with a copy of the new catalog and a new stamp set, but we got a lot of tips and ideas from the presentations they shared with us!  On Thursday I get to place my pre-order for products from the new catalog, but for now, all I can share is this:

I mentioned earlier in the week that I made cards to swap with other demonstrators.  That was a great success!  I handed out all of my cards and I got some really cute ones back.  I am sharing a few of my favorites today.  Aren't they great?

You're the Best!

I'm writing Tuesday's blog post a little early because TODAY IS THE DAY!!! The new 2014-2015 Idea Book and Catalog is released to demonstrators all across the country in Premiere Events held at movie theaters in select cities.  I'm really looking forward to getting a look at the new products that will be introduced!

But first, I have a card for you.  I was experimenting, just for fun, and I'm really happy with the way this card turned out!

Hello!

Greetings!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Ours was good....busy, but good!  In addition to setting up Feedblitz as my blog delivery system, I planted some flowers and tomatoes, cleaned up my houseplants (which are outside now, yay), and got all the other weekend chores done!  It was busy beginning to end!

One last note on the move to Feedblitz, I am planning to "turn off" Feedburner on April 30.  So for the next couple of days, you may continue to receive duplicate messages.  Thanks for hanging with me through this!

My aunt and uncle have been married 50 years this year and today someone posted a few pictures of them on Facebook.  I have to share!

Aren't they cute?  Happy Golden Anniversary!

Anyhow, even with all the "busyness",  I still found time for some stamping!  I made 22 cards to swap at the Catalog Premiere tonight, and I made some projects to share with you!  Hopefully I will get some cool cards from the swap that I can share here with you.

And now,  here is today's card.  On Thursday I got my Project Life pre-order.  I have to tell you, you're going to love those products!  For today's card, I used the Cards and Labels Framelits Dies (#135707) that will be available for order on May 1.  (A full list of the Project Life products available to order on May 1 is shown below).

This is a test

It has come to my attention that some of your aren't receiving my email blog posts.  And while looking into why you may not be receiving them, I have read some troubling reports that Feedburner, my email delivery system, may be shutting down.  So, while my email subscriber list is still a manageable size, I've decided to switch to Feedblitz to deliver my blog to you.  So, before I shut down Feedburner, I wanted to do a little test to be sure you are getting TWO copies of this blog post. (or if you were no longer receiving it, you are at least getting one copy delivered now).  So, will you take a minute to post a comment here or send me an email and let me know you got it?

Thank you!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
