I think all stampers can relate to me when I say, "I work best under pressure." Why is it that I always procrastinate until the last moment? Maybe it is because I know I have no other option but to stay focused and get my work done. This does not apply just to my stamping -- but everything I've done since I have been retired. When I worked and was raising my children, I had to stay on top of everything or check myself into a mental hospital. Now, I think I can wait because nobody is pressuring me. Well I now have every day packed with things to do on my check list before I can step foot on the plane to Stampin' Up Convention!! This just doesn't work well for a Type A person!!
So I am so very happy to say I have my swap cards done. After I get done with this post, I will run over to my daughter's to water her garden, clean the kitty litter, play with the cats, and sweep up their messes. I have been house sitting all week and this is my last day. Wahoo!! Two things off my check-list. Still have lots more to do today, but those are 2 biggies!! Okay, now for my swaps:
As you can see, they are all the same -- but different. (Hmm, that sentence must have a grammatical error in it somewhere.) My goal was to create swaps that were easy to duplicate in a Stampin' Up Workshop or card class. So these cards were way out of the box for me, and the best I could do as WOW cards are very difficult for me.
