Back At Last!

Easter Tag Swap

I joined Sandy's Easter Tag Swap and was delighted to find Kathy Lowry  would be my swap partner.  We've been in some of the same tag swaps, so I'm familiar with her beautiful work.  She's been super busy lately helping with her two youngest grandbabies, but she still managed to send the MOST wonderful package you could imagine. I couldn't even remember what I'd sent her once I started opening all the goodies in the box she sent! But I knew whatever I sent wasn't nearly enough.

Just look at all these goodies! Amazing!

Kathy made this gorgeous tag book - isn't it beautiful? What a joy to look through the pages!

ATCs - everything with Easter or Spring theme.

One tin full of all kinds of bits and bobs - can hardly wait to use these! Another tin full of yummy cookies!

Look at this wonderful bunny on the Egg Tag - he's holding his own egg!  Don't you LOVE those huge feet and wildly floppy ears?! It's beautiful with that ruffled crepe paper trim.

What's inside this polka-dotted envelope? 

All kinds of goodies were inside, including the wonderful egg/bunny tag and the ATCs. Kathy has shared so much of her crafty items with me - I just love it all!

That's not all ........... just can't get all the photos to fit in here where I want them :(    I definitely need to learn much more about blogging.  Another really cute tiny envelope contained tons of little teeny-tiny tags, bunny punch-outs, graphics - oh, just so much! And then there's the large box full of Anna Griffin stamps and ink pads - an Anna Griffin stamping kit!  

I might need to continue with another blog post - Kathy sent SO MUCH and it's all SO WONDERFUL! 

Thank you, Kathy, for being such a delightful Swap Partner, and thank you, Sandy, for hosting this lovely swap!

Now what did I send Kathy?

That'll have to be another post too!

Exciting Mail!

Kimberly's Tuesday Trading Card Swap

Kimberly Laws has started a Tuesday Trading Card Swap, with three ATCs to swap every Tuesday. She has a different theme each week, and the first 3 who email her are the lucky swappers for that week. A couple of weeks ago I was one of the lucky ones!

The Theme for that week was Alice in Wonderland

Isn't this the most beautiful packaging? So lovely!

Here's the ATC I received from Kim -
                                            I love it - so much detail and variety!

And here's the card I sent! Love that Graphics 45 paper! I "borrowed" Kim's photo since it was so much better than my own. Really need to learn how to take better photos!  This swap was so much fun - hope to swap with her again soon! Thanks so much for swapping with me, Kimberly!
