Delicate Doilies Thank You- Anyone want to swap?

Good Morning!

Last Saturday I held my first event as a business demo! I had a kickoff party at my house to introduce all my friends to the new catalog and some of my new classes. I've never held an event like this so I didn't really know what to expect but lots of my friends showed up, ate snacks, talked about the catalog, and participated in my make-n-take. I had a great time and I think everyone else did, too! Thank you to everyone who was able to make it!

For the make-n-take, I used the pretty new Delicate Doilies set. Here it is:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Just Believe
Ink: Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand classic inks; Jet Black Staz On
Paper: Sahara Sand, Poppy Parade, Whisper White cardstock; Pool Party textured cardstock; First Edition DSP
Accessories: Linen Thread, Victoria crochet trim

I wanted them to be detailed but simple for people to do. Everyone's turned out great so I think I succeeded!

I'm not going to convention this year. I went last year and had a great time! One of my favorite parts was swapping cards with everyone I met! Since I've got some extra cut from my party I thought I'd ask if anyone would like to swap through snail mail instead? I'll send you a card and you can send one of yours to me! I am open to swapping with anyone but I'd appreciate it if the card is made using SU! products so I can show it during my classes and such. Let me know if you're interested- tessamwise at gmail. com

Hope your day is off to a great start! Thanks for popping by!

I LOVE your card! Also, I've been thinking that it's time to try my hand at being a business demo again - I haven't pursued it since our move - so thanks for the inspiration for that too! I think you totally achieved a 'detailed look, yet simple to do' card; it's really fantastic! I won't be at Convention this year either :( What a great idea to do your own swap; I would love one if you don't mind swapping to Canada, I'll email you my address:)
