Stampin Up Convention Mojo and another semester behind me ...

Whew ... I haven't really had time to sit down and catch my breath since returning from my very first Stampin' Up convention.  Utah was gorgeous and there are no words to describe Convention ... I will definitely strive to go again!  I am just finishing up finals and only have one semester to go before I finally have my Bachelor's degree.  This semester was the most challenging semester ... now that I am going to have a two week hiatus I'm ready to get Inky.  We had a demonstrator meeting last night and after sharing the notes from  Convention with everyone I felt energized.  So I'm sharing the Christmas card I made for our swap last night!
Stamp Sets: Punch Potpourri and Pricelss
Cardstock: Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler
Ink:  Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler

Here is my first take on the card but I didn't like it at all:


Well the UPS guy delivered all of my Convention bundles and Holiday mini goodies so I am going to plan a "play" weekend!  Now if the rest of my life cooperates with that plan I'll be all set!

Happy Stamping!

Hi Samie,
Love your Christmas card. Is that gold elastic cording on the top card? I just became a follower and look forward to seeing more inspiration from you.
Thanks,
Babe

@ Babe: Yes, I used gold elastic cord that was in last years Holiday Mini. I love the cord versatility for cards and projects. Thanks for stopping by!
