Perfect Pennants stamp set - my swaps for the Baltimore Stampin' Up 2014 Catalog Premier

At last - I am posting the swap cards I made for Baltimore Stampin' Up 2014 Catalog Premier.  I used the  Perfect Pennants Stamp, Banners Framelits and Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper.  I am so sad that paper is now retired, but happy that I have a small stash of it.

A beautiful handmade birthday card

I received this gorgeous Birthday card from Patti Beachy, a Stampin' Up Demonstrator friend.  I love the colors (Elegant Eggplant & Pear Pizzazz) and the way she used the On The Grid stamp for a background. 

.  I need to be more like her and actually send cards to people on a regular basis!  It really made my day!
