Control Freaks Swap Card!

Dave and I are flying back home today! I know I'll have so much to share with you and I know by now I'll be ready for home. I tend to be a home-body anyway. While being away, the Control Freaks group that I belong to held a mail-in swap that was separate from our convention swaps. I mailed mine to Lisa before I left for our trip. My package of swaps will be waiting for me when I get home. Can't wait to see what everyone created. In the meantime, here is the card I made for the swap:

I chose the Groovy Love stamp set:

I also used the Lullaby Designer Paper and coordinated all of my colors to the designer paper. I love how one can do that with our Stampin' Up! products. Everything is matchy-matchy!

Have you ever been part of a group swap? If not, here's what it looks like in production mode:

I made these about a month ago and can't recall how many we had to create as a group. I'll know when I open my package! I cut, stamp, punch and pile up all my pieces for my card after making my sample....

Even the In-Color Sequins were a perfect match!

I'll be posting the other cards in the next few days. Give me a few days to catch up as of course, I'll have lots of emails, facebook messages, laundry, and new goodies to put away and probably a bit of jet-lag! We have to drive an hour and a half from the airport to get home so it should be mid-afternoon by the time we get home!

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
