Swapping Frenzy

I made about 20 of these full cards for general swapping at Convention. Swapping at Convention is exciting and overwhelming for a first timer like me! Before I went, Monika did prepare me for what to expect when it came to swapping. I did not even swap like a mad woman until day 3 of my trip.  My first Convention swap was with my friend Linda sitting at the Atlanta airport. I will never forget it! LOL I was a little bit nervous doing the whole thing. Michele my roommate is a PRO! I followed her lead and watched how she swapped in the first days. Then on the last day, I had a bunch of swaps left and she helped me get them done.  (Thanks Michele! Miss you!)
Yesterday's post showed you the 171 swaps that I received. Out of them, 59 were general swapping and 112 were organized swaps that I attended. Now I took 205 swaps with me, but on the last day I decided to hold on to these 20 cards for the meeting this weekend. 
On to the card, this color combo is a new fav of mine. More Mustard, Sahara Sand and new in color POOL PARTY! I used the fun circles from Circle Circus stamp set.  Punched with the dotted scallop and cut it in half. Ran the Sahara Sand in the Dot Embossing Folder. The Kind Thanks is stamped in Basic Black. After this picture was taken, I added a clear citty button (circle) with a piece of white baker's twine tied in front of the sentiment image. I hope the ladies like this one tomorrow night!
I made lots of mental notes about swapping at Convention so I am READY for next year's Convention. Swapping really is a important part of the whole Convention get great ideas, make new friends and share what you love!
Have a magical day!
