These are most of the swap for the night. I particularly like Jacques card (first on the left below). Below the inset of her card is a piece of clear(OHP) plastic with the word 'friend' that added an unusual finishing touch to her work. Very nice!!! With her card I have displayed the other favourites of mine. Anyone interested in knowing more about SU productives please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org

Just a few photos from last nights meeting at the Ibis Hotel. I would have liked to hear more of the business side of things. They covered a lot of ground. It was good. Some of the swaps were excellent. I think I would have to give Jacque the 'wow' today. More tomorrow . . . . . .

This is my swap for our first regional meeting in NZ - no one is sure what to expect but most of us in our group are making about 20 swaps to trade. I decided to use one of my latest buys - the All Natural set. I had not seen this set much so I decided to look up splitcoaststampers for an example and loved everything about this one I copied. There was one more step that they had which I didn't include and that was a band of old olive c/s at the bottom. I also stapled the tag. Colours are chocolate chip, creamy caramel, Old Olive, glorious green and pixie pink.

This tri-fold card we cased from Stamp with Heather (yep we are always over there drooling at her creations). Kirsten made this the challenge for this month. I used the 'Reflection' series again with the co-ordinating colours. The images in the middle are stamped and by the third try (middle card) I got an almost perfect match with the paper. Cool!

Joeleen made me this gorgeous tin for my birthday. She hand cut the big circles and the scallop in the middle as she did not yet have a punch. Her colours of whishper white and basic black are really stunning with the Delight for Life stamp set. She also made a matching card to go with it. I decided to store my extra special buttons that I have been collecting. Much AROHA Joeleen!

These, I'm making for a lady in Helensville and I was trying to keep it simple. That was really hard to do. These lovely stamps are from Hero Arts and I am using them for the first time. I was also trying to recycle discarded card stock from other aborted projects that went wrong. My colours are Night of Navy, Elegant Eggplant and Orchid Opulence. I think this is the first time I've used Orchid Opulence. Not Bad. I hope she likes them coz I sure do.
