Playdate with some Maine Stampers!

About a month ago, I was invited to travel to Jeannine Tarrio's downline meeting for a bunch of Stampin' Up! girls from Maine. Even though I am not one of Jeannine's downline's, she sort of has adopted me into their little group along with a few more girls from Maine. I am so anxious for today as we are meeting and stamping from 9-4! Dave and I traveled a little over 3 hours yesterday and we are making a mini-vacation out of this trip! I'll have more details in the next few days. Oh, and about Dave, he is on his own while I play today!
We were all invited to participate in a shoe-box swap. What does this mean? This means I created a card that I will supply all the items needed for everyone else to create the same card. We add all the tools & accessories needed for the card inside a box the size of a shoe box. We will all take turns making everyone else's card and rotate each time. Sounds like so much fun! I'll post all the cards we will be completing in another post.
Here is the card I created for the shoe-box swap:

Stamp set: On the Grow & A Word for You.......

Tulips were created with the "wing" from the Bird Punch and sponging the edges......
