Happy Monday!

Good Monday Morning!
Did you all enjoy your weekend?
Mine was GREAT! The Oiler's won on Saturday and Jeff Gordon finished second yesterday!
Late yesterday afternoon I realized that the Edmonton SU! Regional is less than two weeks away and I haven't done one swap yet...let alone even THOUGHT about what I'm doing. I am super duper excited to go with Christine and Dirty Girl Buds!
My question is for those that swap....
How many do you typically do for an event like this? Keep in mind that I'm more of a hobby demo and don't need a ton of ideas for workshops.
When I saw the Featured Stamper was Judy aka StampingQueenJAR on SCS I was excited! She's super sweet and makes wonderful cards!
I decided to CASE this card of hers HERE.
Thanks Denise for this super cute Whipper Snapper image ;)

How completely adorable are these !!!! You did an amazing job (as usual:) I hope you had a great's been rainy here (which I'll take any day over snow) but it's only March so we both know there's still a lot of winter left for us :)

Love that Whipper Snapper image, and I love your MFT card. So glad you would play.

Renée said...

Fabulous cards, Dawn! Love the colours!!

sorry, no advice on the swaps ... I don't do them (or rarely) 'cause I never know what to do with the ones I get back!

Ida said...

Your cards are so FUN and FRESH looking. Just love the bright colors and fun details.

Rose Ann said...

Your WS card is soooo cute, and I love the colors!! What a fun MFT card too!! I love the pink, brown, and orange!! Sweet cards, Dawn!!

How fun for you to go to Regionals with Christine & Laura! I bet you'll have a blast!!

Unknown said...

Great cards!! Love that MFT one - so pretty! :)

Jessie/knightrone said...

These are both fantastic Dawn and YAYY for Jeff!! As far as the swaps, only do as many as you want to get back. If you don't NEED a whole lot sitting around, don't do a whole...that way you don't have to figure out what to do with them!!LOL!!

Maria said...

Love both your cards, Dawn!! Wow, the first card's colors just screams summer! So warm and pretty.

Love all the pink on your second card! The touch of orange is fabulous too!! As always, your cards are so nice and clean looking!!

My weekend sucked! LOL! But glad to hear yours was great!!


Marie Bingaman said...

Ahhh, Dawn, more beauties for us to view! Love that stamp on the first cute!!

Vicki Burdick said...

super cute cards Dawn I love them both!!

Rebecca Ednie said...

You should do ATCs! Less paper, easier to make! I had no problem trading them for cards at my regionals. You even get 10 per sheet if you cut them right. let me know if you need the cutting diagram.

Renee said...

Both cards are so cute! I love your colors!

Lori said...

Love the Whipper Snapper image--so cute! And the wavy border punch is fabulous. I may need to pick that one up. As for swaps, I love to participate so I always end up doing lots more than I need to. I work in sets of 20--that's all I can manage before I get bored with one design. I usually do a few different designs (one floral, one masculine, one something else).

The MFT card is fabulous too:-)

I know nothing about swaps my friend...sorry!!
