A Swap For All Seasons

This year long swap has reached the has been great fun. Linda - our swap hostess extraordinaire - guided us through a year of fun themes and color choices!! Now, I have a collection of great cards, cute tags, and plenty of destash to use in future creations.

Here's a look at what I received for the September swap. The theme was Halloween and the color, appropriately, was orange.  

Rinda sent me a fun "trick or treat" card, a pretty fall tag, and a little bonus...a "scary" bookmark...complete with skulls!  She also sent me LOTS of orange destash.

My favorite bits of destash are this cigar band and the tiny orange safety pins.  The jack-o-lantern stickers will be a perfect addition to goodie bags for "the littles".  

My send-to swap partner was Pam.  This is the card I made for her.
I love this vintage has a "ghost-like" quality about it.  I think this is one of my favorite cards (that I made) from this swap.
I'll be sharing another peek at all the cards I made next week.

I decided against "scary" for the tag...I think it turned out simple and kind of sweet!

I also sent Pam this bag of destash...I've already heard from her, and she liked it all.  I'm looking forward to seeing what she does with the orange #54 tag.

Linda! Thank you so much for a wonderful year of swapping fun!!!

You got some very cool things in the destash collection. I wonder where she ever found orange safety pins.

This has been a fun year for sure! I loved this Halloween theme. Your card is a great combination of funny and scary and the tag is sweet like you! (Of course, I love the dots) Rinda sent some awesome stash items in addition to her great card, tag and ghoulish bookmark!
Fun, fun, fun!
