What fun we had.....

Yesterday, I spent the day with 30 other Stampin' Up! demos at Peterborough for some training given by the lovely Monica and Bekka.
I think I can say on behalf of everyone, what a great day they put on for us.
Bekka's business tips, Monica's craft projects and the fabulous Jules talk, advising about recruiting helped alot of Demo's. These girls are so generous with their time and happy to share their knowledge with everyone. Thank you ladies.

At these type of events, it is customary to swap cards with other demo's. By doing this you build up different samples of cards and show off many different styles. Some very different from your own style. Which is why I love swapping.

Here are my cards I made for the swap.

Yep 30 of them. I really enjoyed making thes. Even pricking all around the Kraft square, to do the faux stitching. I took them with me to my son's sporting events and sat pricking away, while waiting for him.LOL
I hope eveyone I swaped with, liked them.

Card: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Summer Sun, black stazon
Stamp: Happy Moments (SAB 2010)
Accessories: Pricking tool, Blender Pen, Round Tab Punch, Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write

Thank you for your lovely comments. I had a blast too - it was lovely to see everyone and I just wish I had been able to spend more time with each of you!

I love your swaps - stunning and they may well be cased at a desk near me very very soon!

Have fun
