Convention starts later this week so I thought I would share with you one of the cards I made for my summer themed swap using the Wetlands Stamp Set (item 126695/126697). I just love this set and all the wonderful things you can create with it. And the new Framelits are wonderful, and as you can see they coordinate with the Framelits you may already have.
Wetlands Summer Themed convention swap Here is a picture of my swaps ready to go. And although I’m unable to attend Convention my friend graciously offered to include me in an organized swap she was doing.
Wetlands Summer Convention swaps This card was a lot of fun to make. I love the water and grew up close to Lake Michigan so these little birds just make me feel so happy and peaceful – I can almost hear the waves lapping on the shore. One of my favorite pastimes as a teen was just watching the waves roll in.

And this week I’ve been able to enjoy the beach again with my sister and daughter in Galveston. Here is a picture my sister took before we started walking on the shore to look for the hermit crabs we enjoyed last year. The scene reminded me of the Wetlands image above.

And here is a photo of my daughter Kaitlin and I after doing some beach combing looking for shells.  I’m looking forward to finding some ideas for the shells when we get back home on Pinterest.

Wonder how I added color to the Tea Lace Paper Doilies? I just love this technique -It’s addictive! Check out this video below to learn how.

Wetlands is such a great stamp set for masculine cards too! If you’d like to see another card that I created using this set stop on by tomorrow.

Important Magnetic Platform Update

Due to an unfortunate backorder situation, the Big Shot Magnetic Platform (item 130658) will be temporarily turned off Thursday, July 18, at 12:01 AM (MT). This means that you won’t be able to buy it until further notice. While we’re thrilled to be offering a product that you clearly like, we regret not being able to anticipate just how much you would like it. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Here are answers to some of the questions you might have:

Why are you doing this? We went through what we thought would be a 13-week supply of the Magnetic Platform in just three weeks, and rather than continuing the backorder situation for you, we believe it’s best to make it unavailable for purchase until we can replenish our inventory. Our supplier is working at capacity to meet our demand, and we will continue working closely with them to get the situation addressed as quickly as possible.

When will the Magnetic Platform be available? We expect that it will be available early fall.

What if I already ordered it when it was on backorder? We’ll fill all closed backorders as we get more Magnetic Platforms in. We are receiving periodic shipments from our vendor and as soon as they come in we’ll fulfill orders in the approximate order they were received.

Remember, you have until Thursday, July 18, at 12:01 AM (MT) to close current Magnetic Platform orders (or make a new one); all of these placed orders will be on backorder.
