Grand Soiree Swap & RAK from Lori


Happy Tuesday! Here's a swap I did with the Great Swap Girls using one of my new favorite sets, Grand Soiree. I love how you can make the chandelier have a different look and feel by changing the colors and style of the card. Here the chandelier is embossed with Iridiscent Ice Embossing Powder, so it's very sparkley, but hard to see in the photo.

I also wanted to share this beautiful thank you card I received from my friend and downline Lori. Isn't it the cutest?! I love the colors and how she used the the Top Note Bigz die. I just noticed it has a similar ribbon treatment as my card above, great minds think alike, right, Lori?! hee! hee!


I was a little *tired* Monday, so let's hope today is better! I accidentally took a two hour nap from 6:00 - 8:00 pm last night. Yikes! And I missed the season premiere of Chuck, darn! I did catch Heroes, I love the change in Silar, but I've always been drawn to the bad boys!

Okay, gotta dash! Hope you have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by!
