WCMD-2015, Atlanta, Georgia

What a great weekend we had, my daughter Nance Lempinen Leedy of Canopy Crafts, and myself attended World Card Making Day in Atlanta, Georgia.

The WCMD was hosted by Brian King and Pam Morris and was a lot of fun.  We met old friends and made new ones (it's so nice to actually meet some of the women you know through their blogs) as well as participating in a card swap.  How could you not swap cards at WCMD, there were approximately 60-65 swaps! At the end of my post I'll show a sampling of some of the cards.
There were some great presentations, games, give-aways, stamp set gift, make- and-takes, lots of inspiration and an absolutely delicious lunch, complete with one of my all time fav's "Bread Pudding (bites) in a Rum sauce, oh my, true Southern hospitality!

Anyhow enough of that...this is the card I made and used as my swap. After a lot of h'mm's and don't know, this is what I (and my daughter) came up with.

I used two strips of Happy Haunting washi tape, cut one narrow strip of black glimmer paper to cover the seam.  The image was stamped on very vanilla CS and the leaves and pumpkins colored with SU markers.  The sentiment was also on vv CS and backed with another piece of black glimmer paper finished off with a very vintage button, courtesy of my daughters stash and a linen thread bow, which apparently didn't get on this card!!
My daughter's swap card was this adorable Flap Fold Card Tutorial she used on The Paper Players blog where she is a team member.  The picture doesn't show how cute it opens to reveal the inside.
As promised here are some of the wonderful card swaps we received.

That's it for now, thanks for looking.  I'd love to hear from you, please leave a comment.
