'Wonderful Woman' theme card swap

The theme for our crafty night this time around is any card that incorporates a 'Woman' into it. I don't really have any stamps that are just a woman, so I opted to go with a fairy woman. I hope I'm still within the guidelines for the card swap. I think it'll be fine, we're a pretty laid back group and really just love to get together to spend a fun evening together and have lots of laughs. I'm really looking forward to the night out and I know most of the other ladies are too. We certainly had some laughs tonight and some crazy conversation. Kim had a great project for us to do, I'll post it as soon as I'm done...just a few more things to finish on it.

Here's an angle of my swap card to show the dimension in the card.

I treated myself to this scallop diamond edger punch at M's using a 50% off coupon that I happened to have from another recent trip there. I've been wanting this punch for a while now and I really like it. I like the detail of the little diamonds at the peaks of the scallops. And, the fact that I got to use a 50% off coupon justified me getting more things, too, using another coupon, of course, but in a separate order. Gotta love a bargain, eh? lol :)

I have a few cards to show you, but they'll have to wait...it's too late and I need to call it a day, so stay tuned.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
