February 2011 ATC Swap

Our Jax ATC Traders' group met at the Olive Garden a couple of Saturdays ago to trade our latest batch of cards.  We had been on an extended break - from October - so had some catching up to do! Each time we meet someone selects the theme for the next trade. So, back in early October when the theme, "Anything Goes", was given, I was thinking about Christmas. Needless to say, mine were the only Christmas themed cards swapped! I'll have to get some photos to show what I received - all beautiful, of course. A fun group!

February 2011 ATC Swap
I really love that stamp (Memory Box) purchased from A Small Cleverness. The sheet music background paper is from The Graphics Fairy, such a wonderful resource!

February's Finished? Is it too late for more Valentines?

 I forgot to take a photo of the one I sent her.

Little Valentine candy holders my friend Clara and I made for some of the ladies at church.
The cute little graphics are from Sandy's Valentine Images CD

Kandeland's Second Annual Valentine Tag Swap

Valentine Tag Swap - What fun!
It's been rainy and gray since I received them - finally got photos -
the tags are much prettier than my photos show!
Thanks to Natalea for hosting and to all the participants!

My tags - some were pink & some red (background)

Baby Quilt

Kathleen & I worked on this baby quilt years ago,
 but the baby for whom it was intended didn't live.
Now, many years later, I got it out and finished it for little John.
It seemed like such a cute idea when we started - all those
different colors of gingham, with the yellow gingham backing!
