Februrary Swap from Bev

I love the format of the monthly swap at A Swap for All Seasons.  Linda has designed it so each swapper sends to one person but receives from a different one.  I think this keeps it interesting and fun...I love mixing it up. This month I received my swap from Bev of Country Frog Creations.  After checking in with each other at the beginning of the month I realized I'd actually received some lovely things from Bev a few years back when we were both swapping regularly with the Red Lead group. This is one of the best parts of getting back into paper crafting...all the wonderful people I've "met" through the years who love to do this too!  Take a look at the fun package Bev sent to me. She wrapped it in old dress pattern paper. I love to do that too!

I love the card and tag she made for me and look at all the swell red stash things she treated me to.  I know I'll have fun using the buttons, cards and game pieces.  The vintage Valentine is hilarious. You can move the girl's head and the boys eyes. Depending on the mood he can be looking at her, looking shyly away or looking scared to death! So funny!

Of course I had to play with him every which over and over. Thanks Bev for a great swap!

February Swap

Well, can you believe how quickly January flew by? Here I am once again showing off my card and tag for the monthly swap at a Swap for All Seasons. The theme this month was Valentine's Day and the color was red. Although there are no hearts or Valentine sentiments on my card or tag I think they're still Valentine-ish. I just fell in love with some of the collage sheets at Red Lead and had to use them. I hope my swap partner likes them.

And here is my De-stash. I apologize for the poor lighting in these photos. It's been pretty gloomy here in the Pacific Northwest and good light is hard to come by!

Today is the first day to sign up for the next swap  so if you'd like to join us head over to A Swap for All Seasons and take a look!
