Friendship Swap.

These are the goodies that I sent to my partner in the Friendship Swap being hosted by Linda  of A Swap For All Seasons.  We needed to send a card and a tag  with the theme of friendship/pink for cancer awarness and some pink goodies from our own stash.  Jan has received her parcel from me so I can now show and tell.  I forgot to take a picture of the pink lace that I included but you can see it over on Jan's blog.
This is the tag that I made.
Digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil.
Martha Stewart border punch
Pink envelope made using my Envelobox Creator.
(Best buy ever, I never have to worry about having a envelope the right size anymore!)

Here is the card that I made. I can at last show you some of the Joy fold cards I have been busy doing. I have used different  pinks and greys card stock from my stash. 
Image is a topper by Little Claire 'LCD06'
Spellbinders  Delicate Asters 'HCD726'
Small cat punch (unknown make)
Here you can see the card starting to be opened up. More of the flower die with  black embossing for the swirls and black pearls.

The card fully opened up showing the sentiment and blank space for writing in using

Spellbinders Majestic Elements die  S4-383.

Just popped over to say Big Congrats on your frugal win. I was so happy to see a familiar name as the prize winner, but not at all surprised that it was you! (And don't feel guilty. You did a lot of work! All first class too!). As a bonus got to enjoy some more lovelies on your post today. I am really liking your joyfold card. Gotta find some instructions on that one, so very pretty. Your colors are so soft & pretty & I'm really also liking your first card with the 2 sweet ladies. You are one busy card maker! Wish I had just a smidge of your imagination (and we won't even discuss your talent! Awesome). TFS & Hugs

Cornelia W said...

Wow - your cat card is absolutely lovely! I am always amazed when somebody decorates the inside as well!

You sent some really pretty things to your swap partner. The card is so cute and the tag is so nice. The sentiment is very sweet. Thanks for the tip about getting comments in email. I did that and they are showing up there. Makes it so much easier.

Super tag and card Mrs A - you know I adore the girl friends image and the sentiments is so true. Joy fold cards are really such a joy to make too, one of my faves.

Dun laugh (or cry), I woz sitting quietly in the garden late afternoon wiv a glass of wine after Len dragged me away from the ironing and a white pigeons feather wafted down. No kidding - I almost had to be revived, did it blow in from your direction?

Hugs, Di xx
