For you closed Hi Stampers:

Here is my  open swing  top card  I made  this past weekend. You can check out the  video I  did on how  to make  this  style card HERE .

I thought  since I was  asked by Maria  on my Cbox yesterday about offering  blog candy  and since I haven't  done one in awhile why not  do one  today :) 

While standing at the check out line  at my local  store yesterday   I picked up the  People Magazine   and  thumbing through  I seen towards the back  2 photo's  of the same  photo  just things were not the same as in the other photo  so it  got  me thinking .. (HUMMM  I know that could be dangerous 🙂   

For you Opened So I thought we would have some fun today . I made the  above card  as my "Before "  sample, Then I made  a card  very simular to that  card, which will be  considered  my "After " Card

Before & After Here is  what you need to do . In the comment section below this post ~

 List  the (12)  things  I did different on my "After " card   compared  to my  "Before " Card  (each item that changed  must be listed separtely and NOT  group  together ) 

Before & After Blog candy 4-14-09and the 1st person (  Jennifer Phillips got all correct ~ check list of 12  at very bottom if you want to know )   to list all 12 correctly will get this  blog candy + the "After" Card  .

 Somethings are obvious  and  some are  subtel  changes  BUT You must List All 12  things  that are different  on the "After" card -vs- the "Before " card  

Dawns Side Note : I will mention that  I used the  same Whisper white card stock  , Baja breeze card stock  along with the  Walk in the park designer paper # 115123  the same punches and  the  Great Friend Stamp set # 113792 for both cards .

You may want  to click on  before & after photo  to enlarge your  viewing :) 

I think  This may be  to easy ( This is my 1st Before & After ) so we may have  to do another  in the near future~ that's if you like playing :) 

As soon the 1st person lists all 12 correctly  I will post all 12 differences  here  on  this post  so you  will know someone has  listed all 12  and the  Before & After  Blog candy has ended .
