Still in November here...my partner was the lovely and talented Linda,of Lambsworld.
Our paths have crossed before...we were partners in another Swap For All Seasons swap 4 years ago. I have dug out that post here. We altered and exchanged Altoid tins. I had never done that before but it was lots of fun.Linda does beautiful work and she loves vintage things so the bar was set high.
I didn't make a traditional card but instead made a pocket.
Two patterned papers to make the pocket itself...
and then trimmed it out with a paper doily and some vintage seam binding and a teeny heart stick pin.
Tucked inside was a copy of a vintage photo...
a button card...
and some Birthday wishes...
After I completed the pocket, I couldn't find an envelope it would find into, so I put it in a glassine bag.
I made the tag using an image that you have probably all seen...
"be silly & have fun" is a motto I subscribe to. Doesn't she just make you giggle just a little?
I attached a silver Birthday candle with some Washi tape. (Gosh, I love those chubby knees!)
ribbons, ric-rac, some laces and a tiny paper sack.
(Are you wowed by the fact that I photographed all of this on my favorite brown plaid tablecloth?)
That's it....my brown package for Linda.
Next month is green for Christmas and I'll be making things for the sweet lady who was my very first A Swap For All Seasons partner. This will be fun!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Don't be afraid to leave a quick Hello so I know you were here.
Next up, I'll show you some pictures of the Craft Show and I think there will be a giveaway!
