First up we have this stunner from Pat Carr (WA). I love this because it emulates where Convention was held. And who doesn't love a little punch art?
Next we have a cute teabag holder by Margaret Hendersen. Margaret didn't have her contact details on this when we swapped but I liked it so much I made sure I got her name. Now Margaret if you have to be reading this and I got your name muddled up, I am so sorry! And please let me know.
This card was fantastic to receive because I got it off this 'nice' lady and instantly loved it, so I thought I'd look at the back to see who the artist was. And then I realised that it was my blog buddy, Andrea Lowcock. Well that just sent me a little crazy and had to introduce myself properly and get the biggest 'real' hug!
Naydene Beaver made the card below and I loved her colour choices and, of course, the butterflies. I really must get this set!
I went out to dinner with my ESAD buddies on the Thursday evening, but forgot to take my swaps. I sat with the lovely Pam Jorgensen and she was handing out swaps and I was praying that they didn't disappear before morning. Needless to say I was privileged to receive this gorgeous butterfly brooch! Isn't she clever?
And sitting beside Pam at dinner was Kathy Faulkner. Kathy was also handing out her swaps. I was silently kicking myself under the table to forgetting to take mine. So on the Friday morning I searched for Kathy and found that she had but a few of these beauties left. I would have to say that this card of Kathy's was the highlight for me!
I must say thanks to everyone who swapped with me! I have so many great ideas and loved the frantic pace of swapping - to give those non convention goers an idea of what it's like, think Wall Street in the 1980's - just CRAZY!
Now I can't find blog links for all of these talented ladies, but if you are out there reading and know of their blogs please contact me so that I can add links to this post.
Till next time, happy stamping...
