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!

Oh my, that vintage Valentine is a treasure! Bev always does very artful work...her card and tag certainly reflect that. I agree with you about the format of the swap. I've met some wonderful new (for me) new swappers!
Dark and gloomy in Pittsburgh! too! Will Spring ever come?
