Hamilton Regional bound!! So excited!

Well this afternoon I leave for Hamilton to attend the regional meeting there on Saturday and Friday evening I will be attending the Pre-Regionals Stamping event hosted by Heather Summers. I have taken many of her on-line classes and can't wait to actually meet her. You can find her blog here:

Check it out you will love it. She is a top Canadian Stampin'Up demo.
For this event there will be all kind of activities, games, prizes, lots of fun but a shoebox swap is the first thing we will be doing. If we wanted to participate we had to design and create a card and put together the makings for 5 more cards, it had to be doable in 10 minutes; what a challenge!
This is the card I will be using for my shoebox swap:
  It is a red version of my card I posted here:
 I used the Jolly Holiday DSP and the Bright Christmas stamp set and also the 3 snowflake stamp that is in the set Serene Snowflakes. The ink is Blushing Bride and Cherry Cobbler. The die cuts are the #2 Snowflake Big Shot die and the new Northern Frost decorative strip in Very Vanilla cardstock.
The brad is a Blushing Bride Glimmer brads in the In-Color pkg. The sentiment is based on a shortened scalloped square from the new square duo die in the Holiday mini catalogue. I really like the bright colors of this card, it is very different from the green one in the earlier posting.
I also decided to decorate the inside of my sample because Heather will send all the samples off to the local Ronald McDonald House.
I used the 3 snowflake stamp again with the Blushing Bride ink and a verse from the Occasional Quotes Hostess set.
I I really like the end result and hope everyone enjoys putting it together.
 ....I will post my swap card later so check back in a day or so.

Thanks for visiting!
