My Team Dinner And Some Of My OnStage Live Swaps
More Amsterdam Photos And A Couple Of Swaps

Friends and Swaps


Above are two of my friends.  Tamra to the left is from the USA and I met her at a Founders Circle a few years ago.  We were two of the few from the USA attending the Brussels OnStage live.  We both found a treasure meeting Elaine Harding.  Elaine is from England.  We went sight seeing in Brussels and all had the greatest time.  I had the pleasure to see them both again in Amsterdam at the OnStage Live.  Such a treat!  So when I saw my swap from Elaine, I wanted to share it with you.  Here it is:


For the stamps, Elaine used the Swirly Bird Bundle and Sunshine Sayings.  For paper she used Sweet Sugarplum along with whisper white card stock.  Sweet Sugarplum and Wild Wasabi inks were used.  For her accessories, rhinestone basic jewels, clear Wink of Stella and the Big Shot were used.  An extremely eye pleasing card from my friend.  Thank you Elaine for swapping with me.

Another swap I received was from Jilly Rickards from the United Kingdom:


The above card is another swap I received.  Jilly used the Mint Macaroon and Whisper White cardstock.  She used the colored glimmer paper we no longer have but any that we have would be a great substitute if making this card.  One Big Meaning Stamp set was used for the sentiment.  Sweet Sugarplum was used for the ink.  Thank you Jilly Rickards for swapping with me.

I love swapping because I receive things that I would not normally make myself.  Below is one of those items.  I love it but would not make it unless I were having people over for a meal with a sort of food theme.  Thank you Claudia for swapping with me!!!  I loved it too:


It looks pink but it is really red.  Such a fun item!  Her blog is on the watermark above.

Thank you so much Mary!


Thanks for sharing your swaps, Phyllis. I especially love Elaine's because it shows you don't need lots of supplies to make a stunning card.
(P.S.. Welcome home!)
