Snappy Crab Convention Swap

One of the things that I most love about attending Stampin’ Up’s annual convention is seeing friends that I usually only get to see electronically during the rest of the year.  Our group does a swap and dinner each year and I always look forward to it.  It’s such a great group of women, and they happen to be talented stampers as well.

This is the card I made for our swap using the You’re Sublime stamp set.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!
