On Stage, Country Living & More

Wow, it has been a world wind 7 days with lots of fun, laughter, and friends! I’ve got lots to share with you, but today I’m going to share a card that I created for my On Stage Shoebox Swap with Sherrie and more!

I’ve waited 8 years to get to go to a Stampin’ Up! event in Salt Lake and it was well worth the wait – I had a blast and can’t wait for the next On Stage in April, after all I always enjoy stamping with 2,700 of my closest friends. LOL!

My roommate Marnie and I  took off in the wee morning on Tuesday, ready for adventure.

We arrived in Salt Lake ready to check out the city – a quick peek out our window after we checked in (what a view)

And then enjoyed the stroll around Temple Square which included an organ recital there,

and the City Creek Center, which was an outdoor mall where we had lunch at the Blue Lemon, yum.

I couldn’t resist stopping in the chocolate shop, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, which smelled heavenly and picking something up for my hubby, Larry whom I’m left at home. As many of you know he is a chocolate fiend!

And of course we had to check out the Salt Lake Palace Convention Center.

It was fun to see all the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Banners on the posts. It was a full day for sure.

Wednesday, I did a Sherrie’s Shoebox Swap so today I thought I would share a tutorial for my card with you. Want to see the card? I really loved the way it turned out.

Here is the card I created.

I call it Boots and Bandanas – can you see my old-fashioned bandana in the background that I created with the Paisley & Posies Stamp Set. Larry didn’t I had to explain it to him, he just shrugged at me – men lol.

Here is the tutorial for you so you can make one too.
