No Excitement This Time Around!

Well, ladies (and gentlemen), I am glad to say that we had a pretty quiet Maine Stampers downline meeting (compared to last month). There was plenty of conversation and laughter, just not panic and alarms going off! Click HERE and HERE if you missed that post.  Today I wanted to post Bethany Crummett's Shoebox swap.  If you checked out Stampin' Up!'s Weekly Deals today you saw that Stampin' Up!'s Floral Framelits were on sale, yippee!!  So if you want to copy this fabulous card, now is your chance to pick up these framelits at a discount.  Remember the sale is only from today to February 19,2014.  So without any further ado here is Bethany's card:

Stampin' Up! Floral Framelits Card by Bethany Crummett Maine Stampers

I will post all shoebox swaps this week, so stay tuned (in other words, check my blog posts this week).

I wanted to create a card to make the receipient smile, so I added little hearts for the center of the burnished flowers and popped up a small heart under the greeting.  Enjoy.
