I am participating in a fun, monthly swap that started in October of this year.
is a swapping blog, designed and maintained by Linda Smith...hostess extraordinaire!
Each month we are assigned someone to design a card and a tag for and also send one destash item.
Likewise, someone (not the person you are sending to) will be making and sending items to you. It's easy and lots of fun and I'm meeting some really talented women.
The interesting part is that there is a theme and a color each month to make it challenging . If you were ever interested in getting your feet wet with a swap,this is the one to start with. Hop on over to the blog and read about it. All of the guidelines are there. Just click on the link in my first paragraph.
The next sign-up is December 1st (and just for that day!) and the theme will be
Thinking of You and the color...my favorite...blue.
The Theme for December was Happy Holidays and the color was green.
My partner was the sweet and crafty (in a good way)
Susie Alles of South City Hues. Susie has been my partner before and I loved creating for her.
The card I made...
Susie's favorite color is green...made it easy!
Ice skate image, cut twice and used to make the skates and some of the holly leaves dimensional.
Except for the background papers, all of the elements of the card and the tag were digital. Of course, glitter was involved and a little paper rose on the card...
For the destash, I sent a big bunch of lovely dark green vintage seam binding and some other papers that I failed to photograph. All wrapped and ready to go...
(lunch bag, doilies and green garden twine from Home Depot!
Every month...so much fun...love this swap!
