Retreat and card

I have been away for 5 days at a cardmaking retreat at the Outer Banks of NC.  It was me and two other women that I met online in a cardmaking group.  We had the best time!  We all made up card kits for eachother so we had cards to make.  This is one that Faye designed.  The funny thing is, I designed one that was very similar, just a different stamp.  Here is the photo of that card.  The cups from Stampin Up are awesome to use to put keepsakes in.  The shells, sand, etc, were all gathered from the beach.  These were so much fun to make.

Easel Card

Here is an easel card that I did for a swap.  I just love these stamps.  They are so fun to color.  The butterflies are punched using a new Martha Stewart punch.  They layer really well.  Hope you enjoy this card!

Well, we went away for Easter to the Outer Banks of NC for a few days.  I didn't make any cards, because I didn't take any of my supplies.  I also didn't play any games on facebook (what a shocker) and we just had a good time.  Here is a pic of my daugher and her boyfriend - who went with us.  We are on the top of Jockey's Ridge, the highest sand dune on the east coast.  We had beautiful weather while we were there, and had a great time.
