Lovely Swans

Good evening fellow bloggers....thanks for stopping in to see what I have been doing. It means a lot to me when I see that you took the time to leave a comment....PLUS that way I know you have been here.

This is my card that represents the blocking challenge that I had sent to my girlfriends up in Canada. We do these challenges while I am away and it keeps me from missing them so much.

I love the graceful look of swans swimming so when I saw this stamp at I just had to have it. It is from an old Stampin Up set from 2000. I used paper from a current SU designer pattern pack. I love how their papers match their card stock.

Well here is my card for tonight....... thanks again for stopping in and I hope you liked what I came up with for my card.

I added a couple of conner punches to this one to finish it off a little more. Which way looks better to you?
