A Swap For All Seasons

Last Tuesday I shared the December and January goodies I received from A Swap For All Seasons. It's my very favorite swap group!  This month, Linda is sharing sweet Springtime images on the swap blog.  With all this crazy, cold , snowy weather going on I just bet everyone could use a little touch of Spring. If you decide to go visit the swap blog make sure you read all about how the swaps work.  On March 1st you can visit and sign up for the April swap!!
 
Now here's a peek at the February swap.
 
The theme was Valentines, and we shared Red Destash items.
I love red!!
 
Have a look at the goodies I received from Pam.
 

I think it's so fun that Pam packaged my Valentines in a paper sack. Do you remember taking a empty paper sack to school, and then receiving it back filled to the top with Valentines cards?!
This was just like that!!

 "No Kitten"!!
I love this cute little tag!!
 

"Bingo! You're a winner Valentine!"
Isn't this image adorable!!


Love all my new red destash and I can't wait to use it!!  I already added a little pin to the back of the crocheted flower...it looks perfect on my gray sweatshirt.

 
 
And now a look at what I sent to Francie.
She mentioned on her blog that she likes everything...that's always a happy thing to hear!
 

"Hugs & Kisses" to you! This is one of my very favorite images with a heart!!  



I lean towards simple in paper art...a tag covered with pretty paper, a bit of sheet music and lace, a wool felt heart and a mother of pearl button. All tied up with a bit of hemp!


 
Destash!!
 
 

February was a fun month to create for...now it's time to get busy with the current March swap. It's all about Spring...and a little bit of yellow!

All the reds in these are a nice break from the great wall of white that is everywhere I look around here...lol

Hi Marie! I am coming over from Peggy's Blog.

This sure looks like a great idea :)
I'd love to have little fun things in the mail, it sure beats getting bills all the time.

I love the Olympics too! I'll be watching them tonight. My husband is a real curling fan himself. He laments that the coverage for that sport is so small. I like the figure skating and the skiing. (I can't really do either, so that's probably why!)

Nice to meet you today!

from the blog party . love your work. I do a paper crafter. but I always get inspired by all walks of life and stitching cards is my love to do someday. so what better thing than watch the wonderful sites like yours. following 600 blogs is a lot of blogs, in the last group and 24 hours to go.
