I participated in my first ever swap this week

I participated in my FIRST ever swap this week. Wendy over at My Head Space had a cloud and/or Tree swap going – I mean how could I resist ... with my cute little tree charms. Not knowing what I was suppose to make & send ... this is what I came up with


Every Cloud has a Silver Lining



The clouds are painted corrugated cardboard lined with silver ink and our sun charms tied with blue organza ribbon


For the trees I made postage stamps with my friskars scissors which I am trying to track down to get onto my website, no luck so far. Inked it with my template I have made up and using my white tags (left blank for a date or small journalling) and our dark blue flowers.


I enjoyed making them, and even did a few extra ... I have 3 more sets left if anyone would like one, just let me know. AND before you ask Amanda, yes I have put your set away LOL


There is 12 of us in the swap. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone cames up with.

There are so many CCs going on this weekend

As much as I wanted to join in, time is not on my side at the moment, but I hope you are all having fun and your mojo is being kind to you - mines being a bit of a jerk actually - my own fault really, spending too much time on the computer, getting sore eyes and not enough sleep. On that note, I am off to bed. Night everyone
