Good morning! Last summer Stampin' Up! introduced a new tag line that you may have noticed under the logo on many Stampin' Up! items in the last little while. The tag line is "inspire. create. share.", and I think it's really what Stampin' Up! is all about...which is probably one of the big reasons why they chose it! So, today, I want to share some sharing with you!

Throughout the year I do frequent swaps with the girls in my downline as well as swap with other demonstrators at Stampin' Up! events! The Leadership conference I attended at the beginning of the month was no exception! I got lots of gorgeous cards from other demonstrators and when I get the chance, I will photograph and share my favorites. But, today I want to share the swaps I got from my downline last week.

Here's my card...
This was also my other swap card for Leadership (remember the first one I shared here). It's quick and easy to mass produce...which is important when you're making 50!!!

Here's Sherri's card...

Sherri is so creative! Did you notice how she made the birds into robins!!! She did that by inking up her stamp, then taking some of the ink off with a Blender Pen and coloring the uninked areas with a marker. Ca-ute!

Here's Heather's...

I always love Heather's cards. She has such a clean style of stamping using great color combinations that are always pleasing to the eye! And, she frequently uses I get my dose of pink and girly from her!

Here's Tara's...

I love the way Tara used the spotlighting technique with the Heart Punch and the I {Love} Love Jumbo Wheel from the Occasions Mini. It's a great way to show off a word or two from that wheel image. And, the Build-A-Brad! I think I need to get my neglected Build-A-Brads out and show them some love! *wink*

And, here's Cheryl's...

See how she used the Curly Label Punch to have an image peeking out from behind the Friends image? I love it! The colors of this card are fabulous and I love how she colored the F to give it a bit more dimension.

I am thrilled with the swaps this time around; the girls did a fantastic job! Stampin' Up! has given me the opportunity to meet so many people during the last 7 years, and I can truly say that these girls, along with the rest of my downline, have become great friends.

Would you like to join us in our next swap? Have you ever thought about doing what I do? Now is a great time to get started and join Stampin' Up!. With a 15% discount on the Starter Kit in addition to an extra stamp set of your choice added to it, you can't go wrong. I LOVE what I do and I love SHARING what I do! You can me to ask me how!

Until next time my friends!
