Hello stampers! I can't believe July has already come and gone! I got busy at the beginning of July preparing all my swaps for Stampin' Up! convention, then I was away at Convention, and since then, I've been busy hosting some students from Japan and showing them around Vancouver. Check out where we went yesterday: Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. It is so breathtaking there! We hiked through shady trails surrounded by old growth forests and picnicked on the sun drenched rocks with the ocean breeze cooling us. As a local, you sometimes forget about all the great places close to home, and I love playing tourist in my own town when I host visitors. I didn't intend to be away from my blog for so long, but I'm back; thanks for your patience!
Today's card is a swap I did for an organized swap at Convention. The swap was organized by my friend and sideline, Ida Chan. Thanks Ida, for organizing such a great swap! At Convention, you can swap anytime with anyone else who is swapping cards, and you can also sign up to participate in organized swaps that have a theme or focus. The focus for this one was "Birthday" and I got so many beautiful cards back in return. I'll try to show some of them in the coming days and weeks.
Thanks for stopping by!
