Merry Monday And Convention Swap

Hello All! 
 Well...what a whirlwind my life has turned into!  WOW!!!  I feel like the last six-9 months has just flown by.  So much has happened...I will just bore you with the coles notes of it!  I'm sure you aren't really that into all the deets!  ha ha ha...Anyways, the short and sweet - I went back to work, my youngest started walking, I went to Convention, my cousin got married, I got a "promotion" of sorts at my other job.  Cardiac Operating Room - I CAN'T WAIT!!  I am nervous as all heck, but I cannot wait.
Anyways, that is all.  A few weeks ago - I went to the 25th Anniversary Stampin' Up! Convention.  I know if you are familiar with Stampin' Up! you know that it is the most amazing company with some seriously awesome product lines...well it was such an inspiring amazing experience.  I have been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for about a year and a half now, I would consider myself a business builder of sorts!  I would love to support others in what they love, but this is an experience that is just so amazing and it would turn any hobbyist into a business builder!  From the swaps, the classes, the friends, the hotel, the freebies it was just amazing.  And to get to tour the home office was soo cool!!  Anyways....what I really came here to post was one of my convention swaps!!  I made 24 of these beauties to trade with other demos.  I am also going to be submitting this in the Merry Monday anything goes Challenge, it is a month long - which is why I have been able to make the deadline ha ha ha...Anyways...This is a suspension card - yes I know, why would I do something that's seems so difficult for a swap...well it is not difficult at all!!!  If you would like some details on how to make a suspension card let me know I'll send you a little tutorial!!
