I recently took part in two online craft swaps. It’s very exciting sending a parcel off to a stranger and waiting for their reaction. Also equally exciting getting a surprise back in the post. I’ve been very lucky in all the lovely crafts I’ve received in all the swaps I’ve be part of.
For the first one I used a kit for a memories book that I got from Jackie Mooney. I made it into a chipboard album and added one or two extra bits. There’s space for two photos in this album.
I also sent a few cards, but I only took a photo of one of them. I used a digi I had coloured in ages ago and hasn’t made it onto a card. I never seem to have time to colour or craft just for the same if it anymore! 😦
I used a coffee cup collar in this card aswell. Waste not want not!
And here is what I received…..a lovely box full of goodies.
Homemade Chai tea (recipe to follow) and a gorgeous mug with a crocheted cosy. I’m looking forward to trying these out.
Two cute egg Cosies for my two boys.
And two beautiful crocheted doilies.
Wasn’t I lucky?
The second swap was an alphabet swap. My letter was ‘C’ so I made a Clock stepper card. I used my new Tim Holtz clock die and some digi stamps from Mami Doodles.
I am entering this card in the ‘Cut it Up’ challenge – What’s bugging you? (see my little ladybug?!)
My swappee had the letter ‘D’, so she made me an altered notelet holder with my name on it, how clever is that? I’ll definitely be making some of these for Christmas gifts.

Two cards today. The first has the image ‘Lonely Hearts’ from Sassy Cheryl, coloured with promarkers. I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl: Back to Nature
Sketch Saturday: Week 245
The next card has a cute image from Mo Manning, also coloured with promarkers. I had another go at the distress inks here, leaving the circle nestie in place for a white border. I’m not too sure about the results!
I am entering this card into Mo’s Digital Challenge – Anything Goes.
Thanks for visiting, please have a look around and leave a comment.
Here is a card I made using Sassy Cheryl’s image ‘Three Funny Snowmen’, for the bargain price of 50c! I coloured it with Promarkers. A lot of people asked me to make this card for them for Christmas, using different colours for boys/girls.
I am entering this card into Sassy Cheryl’s challenge ‘We Love Snowmen!’
I’ve lost count of how many Communion cards I’ve made in the last month; I’m officially fed of of them! 😀 Here’s a few of them anyway. Images are from Karen’s Doodles and Mami Doodles.
