Simply Betty Spring Swap
It seems like such a long time ago that I took part in the Simply Betty Spring Swap, it was organised via facebook where everyone who wished to take part was paired up and you had to send a 'spring basket' filled with approx $25 of crafting goodies, sweeties etc to your buddy.
My spring fling buddy was Wendy from Colorado. We had the option of someone from the UK or further afield and I thought it would be fun to swap with someone in America, its so nice to send and receive crafty bits (and candy) not available at home. I had so much fun choosing things for Wendy, adding little touches from home like a magnet with an irish blessing and my favourite chocolates. If you pop over to her blog you'll see what I sent http://Jazzydoodledesigns.com, I hope she loved hers as much as I loved mine.
Here are all the gorgeous goodies I got from Wendy, I cant believe she sent sooooo much and all in my favourite colours, and we both made the same style of card.
The gorgeous card made with Bettys spring swap image (cant wait to blog hop to see how everyone used her), gems, ribbons, buttons all in my favourite colours, and the gorgeous cross is going to be used on a scrapbook page of my beautiful goddaughters scapbook (which I'll give to her when she's 21-shes 3 on monday)
Excuse the carpet :-)
Washi tape, beautiful easter stamps, prima flowers, lots of yummy 'candy' (as the Americans say) and my uber stylish new peg bag (lets just hope the weather cheers up so I can use it more).
I love paper and look how much Wendy sent me, they're just gorgeous and cant wait to use them
A pressie for Miss Maggie from Jazz
