January Swap for All Seasons


 The color for January Swap for All Seasons was blue.  Our card and tag were to follow the theme "Thinking of You".  My card is above and tag is below.  I used my new Cuttlebug to emboss the blue paper on the front of the card.  I found the blue cameo at the thrift store years ago and it was perfect for the blue card.

The tag features an image cut from a vintage apron pattern.  I added fabric strip, buttons, ribbon and rick rack.


I was to send my swap items to Debbie in Ohio.    Here is a link to Debbi's blog.  You can see her cute kittens.


 These are the blue stash items I sent to Debbie.  There are some vintage educational picture cards featuring blue images, quilt blocks sewn by my grandmother and great grandmother in the 30's, buttons, tiny blue rickrack, and blue embroidery floss.


We are encouraged to be creative in our packaging of the items.  I made a little pouch out of some vintage eyelet and tied a blue lace ribbon.

Debbie received the items today and I'm sending her a few more quilt squares to include in a grandmother's flower garden quilt that she is currently constructing.

Really great card and tag! I especially love the image on the tag! And I love the eyelet pouch you made-your packaging is adorable! I'm sure Debbie loved it. So glad you two are getting to know each other a bit!

Pam, I adore your card and tag! Lucky Debbie! The blues you sent to here are yummy and isn't it nice that she is in the process of making a quilt? So sweet.

I know what I'll be doing over the weekend...cutting some hexagons & piecing some flowers for my quilt! It's been great to get to know you & I know we'll keep in touch.
