Back from Convention and LNS Challenge 228!

Hey there crafty people!

It's been a whirlwind summer so far with kids out of school, camps, family vacation, and Convention (which is Mommy's annual no-kids vacation!) but now I'm home and have tons of things to share with you!  You'll hopefully be seeing lots of posts from me in the coming weeks as I try to keep you informed about all the specials that are going on right now, the events I have coming up, and all the new products that are coming out!  So, please bear with me, I promise, I'm not just trying to flood your inbox!

OK.....on to the current (well, semi-current) LNS Challenge!  I was supposed to have posted some time ago, but it seems my philosophy lately has been leaning toward "better late than never", so here goes.  Don't forget to go here to check out what the other design team members have done, and upload your sample when you've finished.  We'd love to have you play along!

Challenge 228 - Fancy Folds

The fold on this card is not super fancy, but the card is!  This was a card I made at a shoe box swap I joined at the last minute at Convention.  Some of you may know Miss Pesci (Michelle Lyon) from around the blogosphere...and she hosted the cutest shoe box swap while we were in Salt Lake City.  This was actually her project that we all created, and I love it.  As you can see from the second pic, the card holds a gift card inside!  Sneaky and cute!  And I just love all the bling!

Stamps: Festive Flurry, That's the Ticket, Sweet Essentials
