Here is the card I have decided to swap.
I have used:-
Stamp Sets: Circle Circus, Oval All
Ink: Basic Black & Gray, Versamark
Cardstock: Basic Black & Gray, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Dauber, Scallop Circle Punch, Crop-o-dile, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Basic Gray Marker, Crystal Effects and an old office hole punch.
I have also used a bit of left over laminate to line up my sponge lines on the Very Vanilla C.S. moving it back until the whole card is covered in lines that look like venetian blinds.
I had thought of doing something completely different but its funny how you go off on a tangent and come out with something different. I am looking forward to making all of the other swaps at camp. I had better make sure I get plenty of sleep beforehand so that I can stay up all night at camp. I hope you like my card and thanks again for popping by.

I have just posted my Mini Spring Swap below not realising that it wouldnt come out on top so scroll down if you would like to check it out. I drafted it on the 6th Sept but didnt want to publish it until our swaps were over and done with. We had a lovely time at Ngaire's last night and made some gorgeous cards. We were spoilt with Ngaire's dessert too. Mmm! Looking forward to using at my next workshop. As you can see there is no workshop in October as it is a very busy month for me. I have three lots of family arriving, a stamp camp and the Perth Regionals. I was not sure of dates for some of these so decided that October was out. If I find some spare time I will be sure to let my ladies know.
For those of you who love the rain, then enjoy what is left of it and thanks for popping in. Bye for now!

I made this card as one of my swaps for Convention in Canberra this year in May. It features one of my very favourite stamp sets, Upsy Daisy. I have also used the Scallop Edge Punch to create a feature for my card. The shadowing was done by stamping once onto the cardstock, lifting and very slightly shifting to the right and placing the stamp back onto the cardstock to give a shadow effect.
I have used
Cardstock: Whisper White & Bashful Blue
Stamp Set: Upsy Daisy
Stamp Pad: Bashful Blue
Accessories: Bashful Blue Grosgrain ribbon, White gel pen
Scallop Edge Punch
I hope all those fathers out there had a lovely day today. The sun shone quite a bit which was nice. We certainly had a nice day with lunch at Woodvale Tavern with our son and his family and then I cooked dinner for our daughter and grandaughter this evening. Her poor hubby had to fly out this morning early.
Well I am off now to get ready for my next workshop which will be a Punch class. Different ways of using your punches. Thanks for popping by.

Accessories - Circle Punches, Mellow Moss Taffeta ribbon, Post it notes
First of all I punched out circles using post it notes and placed them randomly onto Glossy White cardstock. I then brayered over the top using Bashful Blue. I took the circles off and then stamped the fish using Brocade Blue onto lower part of card. I also stamped the fish onto a piece of scrap paper and cut out and used as a mask so that I was able to re-stamp just above the original fish with Taken with Teal. I stamped some seaweed with Certainly Celery and the wording from Garden Whimsy in black Staz On.
The sunset was done by using the punched out post it note with 1 1/4" punch to make the moon shape. We brayered over the whole piece of Very Vanilla with Pumpkin Pie. On the top and bottom of card we brayered Tangerine Tango and Ruby Red, finishing off with Basic Black by sponging with a Sponge Dauber. I lightly sponged over the moon with More Mustard. Using two pieces of Basic Black ribbon to make the bow in the top right corner. Attach stamped image onto Basic Black card. I used the Linen Stamp with Versamark on the front of the card before attaching the stamped image, then stamping my wording on the bottom.
