Blogger's Swap is OUT the Door!

I spent the night organizing and sorting the mailing for a big Valentine swap with many of my favorite Splitcoaststamper Bloggers. Boy, what a job! I have a new appreciation for swap coordinators! I wanted to get the swaps out to the participants earlier, but today was sort of awful; as is ANY day my 2 year old son doesn't take a nap.

Everyone has been very patient and understanding... they are all very eager to see these cards; and they should be! EVERYONE really created a wonderful card for this swap... getting this package in the mail will be a blast!

I wish I had looked a little closer at the swaps as I got them in the mail. I had missed this wonderful gift from Amanda Sewell. She not only sent a bold and beautiful card...she included chocolate! I sure could have used that earlier today Amanda! What a nice surprise! Amanda also has the neatest handwriting I have EVER seen! She should get into calligraphy too! Don't you love this layout? I also can't wrap my brain around the background... the layering of images is so wonderful and rich! Thanks Amanda!

Denise Bryant also sent me a very thoughtful gift! Check out this card! I just love the scalloped oval punch, and her watercolor work is so impressive! It's a very soft and beautiful card. I need to try the stamping/embossing background combo... I love that! Thanks so much for this Denise!

Here is a quick list of all the Bloggers who played in this swap. Enjoy!

Sue said...

sure i'd love to participate.. !

I've also finally found you - I was inspired by the CD tin you did some weeks back and I couldn't remember where i had seen it - hence I couldn't acknowledge you until a friend of yours, 'Shannon' left me a comment!

Thanks for the inspirational work!
