First attempt at a swing card

I wanted to do something a little different so I decided to attempt a swing card. There are so many videos and instructions out there, but I decided to follow Dar McCallums directions on her video. I have to say it was quite the challenge to score and cut. Think next time I will try cutting with a die in my big shot and scoring afterwards. I did think to myself that I would do this for the last stampers group and did start the scoring - but abandoned the idea as ridiculous on my first card - even though I ONLY had 16 more to do !!! LOL

I love this dragon fly stamp from Local Rubber King Stamps, and the sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse Stamp. All other supplies Stampin' Up!

Liebster Blog Award

I would like to thank my fellow crafter and long time Secret Stash Strokers Team mate Jane for nominating me for a Liebster Blog award! Apparently the award is for those smaller blogs just starting out on their quest to become world super-powers :-)
