A Flood and Some Swaps

 Howdy All!
I know I have been missing for the past month after I was on a roll with getting caught up with my postings. My basement was flooded when we had some relentless downpours last month. I know I live in Las Vegas and the first thing people say is, "I didn't know houses had basements in Las Vegas?" to which I reply, "I know, but we are lucky enough to have one!" The second thing people say is, "How could your basement flood when you live in a desert?" To which I reply, "Exactly!" But, none-the-less, it did flood and that just happens to be where my crafting space is. I've got things back to working order, but still have more stuff to get organized again. Anywho...enough about that and on to much funner things!
This past weekend I was lucky enough to go to a wonderful stamping event put on by Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Jill Olsen. We had to make the 2 hour drive up to St. George, Utah, but it was worth it. Besides all of the tips and demos we received, and the 14 projects that we made we also had an opportunity to swap cards and projects. This is one of the cards that I made.
I really like how it turned out and I love the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog.

Here is my supply list for this card (all products used are from Stampin' Up!):

STAMPS:  Spooky Bingo Bits, Tiny Tags, Mixed Medley(hostess set from the holiday catty)

PAPER:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black, More Mustard, Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray, Howlstooth & Scaringbone dsp

INK:  Basic Black, Basic Gray, Tangerine Tango

THE REST:  Spider Web embossing folder, Big Shot, 1-1/4" Scallop circle punch(holiday catty), 1" circle punch, Jewelry Tag punch, More Mustard 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon, 1/2" Striped Satin Ribbon(Holiday catty), Googlies(Holiday catty), Rhinestone Basic Jewels(colored with a black sharpie), Stampin' Dimensionals

That's it! Super cute, huh?
Be sure to stop back again soon to see the rest of my swaps as well as the super cool Swappin' Apron I made for myself and my girlfriends! I plan to get a tutorial of sorts prepared and I will get it posted next week for all the ladies that were asking me questions about it. Here is a sneak-peek of the one I made for myself.

Thanks a bunch for stoppin' by!
