ICAD swap–receiving beautiful art

Back when the summer days were hot and balmy (yes I remember we did actually have a summer this year lol), the very talented Astrid, at Astrid's Artistic Efforts, made some ICADs (this stands for Index Card A Day – which are aka Skinny's and are 3 x 5 ins in size), she offered to organise a swap and I jumped on board straight away. (Why do I do these things when I am up to my eyes in stuff?) But after my holiday I made a start which then got interrupted by my workshops with Tim and Finnabair, but eventually I got the ICADs and an envelope made for them and sent them out to my swap partners Elly and Maryann. I have kept them to post later for my DT contribution to Country View Crafts’ Challenge where the theme this month is layers.

But here are the fabulous ICADs and folders I received in the post.
Firstly from Sue at Stamping Sue Style.
Sue knows me so well, she chose one of my most favourite themes and made this little beauty.P1140234
And here is the fabulous folder it came in.

Also from the lovely Astrid herself I got two beautiful cards -
Aren’t they gorgeous?
And this wonderful folder.
Decorated beautifully inside….
…. and out.

THANK YOU SO MUCH both of you.
This is the first time I have entered a proper swap like this and I am so happy to have received these perfect little treasures. They will sit in my craft room to bring me additional inspiration each day. I am soooo lucky to have such wonderful blogging friends.

It’s Thursday night and off to banquet night at the local curry house.
See you all soon.
Stay inspired.
