Well, the Artisan Award Blog Hop is now a memory and it's time to move on. Before the blog hop I was showing you some of the swaps that I received from the other Artisans, but some of them wanted to extend the blog hop to include their swap project so instead of me showing you their projects, you can check their blogs to see what they have to share. Here is the card that I made to swap with the other Artisans at convention.
This was almost one of my entries into the AA, but I was trying to focus more on stamping and less on paper crafting, so I decided to set it aside for another day. You can probably imagine that I used a ton of DSP and buttons in order to make 16 of these cards. (We made extra to make sure everyone at the dinner received one.) Thank goodness for the Big Shot and the Fun Flowers & Blossom Party dies. Even with that, they still took several hours to make.
