I recieved my January swap parcel from Pat on Monday (when Liz kindly delivered it and we spent a lovely day crafting ....... inbetween nattering!!).
Pat sent me a selection of papers & embelishments in all shades of blue. After some thinking here is what I have done with some of it .............

 The colours haven't really come out too well for some reason.

A few more cards I made, these were from a mix of my January parcel from Liz, an advent swap I did with friends and my own stash ......

This year my friends Pat, Liz and myself are doing a monthly swap between us, each month we will exchange an envelope of crafting bits (papers, toppers, embellishments, etc.) and the challenge is to see what cards we can make from our "envelope of goodies".
Thanks to the weather making Liz change her plans to play "postie" I haven't yet recieved my January parcel from Pat (looking forward to getting it Monday) but I have had the one from Liz and thoroughly enjoyed it. This months "theme" was by Liz and was "coordinated colours" ....... she gave me green and pink!!! That was a challenge to begin with as she knows I don't like green, LOL, but I was pleasantly surprised at what I achieved. I made 6 cards from the parcel and just added a few bits of card candy or a greeting.
So here they are .............

Well I have been talked into doing this by my two friends ........... yes you Liz & Pat!! I just hope anyone who sees it enjoys their visit. I don't promise you excitement or thrills and spills .......... there's not many of those in my life these days, LOL!! However I do enjoy cardmaking and also my own version of doodling & art journalling so I will share those with you and hopefully you will enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy creating them.
