Convention Cards 1

Hello Friends

I am still away from home, enjoying some time with my kids at Grandma and Grandpa's house.  I returned here after Convention, and won't be home to see my husband until tomorrow evening.  So I don't even get to share my Convention stories (and awards) with him for another 24 hrs.  But THEN I will be truly happy and my Convention experience will be complete.  Since I am not yet home, I have no chance to craft cards.  But I did manage to download some of the gorgeous cards I saw displayed at Convention and I will post a few of these over the next few days for you to admire.  I have no way of knowing who created these lovely cards so I cannot acknowledge them by name....but please note that these cards are not my own.  I must say though, I will undoubtedly CASE (copy and share everywhere) many of these ideas for classes and parties in the next months.  So many wonderful ideas out there...and so happy that demonstrators share their gifts with the rest of us!  Enjoy these creations:

As you might recognize, I love butterflies.  And I love how this simple card uses the new Elegant Butterfly Punch to showcase some gorgeous butterflies.  Notice the use of designer paper for the butterflies themselves, and the Wacky Wishes sentiment.
Absolutely LOVE the Vintage Faceted Designer Button on the Midnight Muse butterfly here.  And love the Papillon Potpourri set stamped onto the cardstock butterflies.  And vellum butterflies....what an inspired choice!
Ahhhhh. Who doesn't love the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit?  A little bling, some Baker's twine and buttons, and the ensemble is complete!

I saw (and photographed) LOTS of beautiful cards at Convention.  Check back tomorrow and I'll share a few more.  Until then, enjoy your day and your week. 

God Bless,
