Now for my beautiful package from Thimbles71

Fun tags!

The cards were done with adhering fabric onto cardstock.  Loved the technique.  Going to steal it for myself.  The results as you can see are fantastic.

Christmas bird

And my favourite because I am a sucker for airplanes

Love the window cut out

Thanks so much Thimbles.  I have already chosen who is getting several of the cards!

I received 2 more awesome packages. So much fun to see the variety of techniques used by everyone.

Starting with my package from Artmomto5

Fun glittery tags with festive pictures

This super cute card which had a cute coordinating envelope

Love this Noel card with the fleur de lis. Great textures used.

The button card is my favourite of the lot.  Love the big star on top

And this really creative card using old cards.  Great upcycling

...and baby is awake. I'll post Thimbles cards this evening.  Thank you so much for sharing your talents with my Artmom!  It was a really nice package to receive.

Time to post the awesomeness I received in the mail from Onyxnox.

These beautiful snowflakes are stunning.  I love 3D aspects to cards.  The shading around the edges makes for an antique look.  Love them!

Gorgeous bird cards.  I'm going to be copying the doubling of the die cuts.  I love this look so much. And the birds are delightful.

The picture doesn't do this set justice but the poinsettia shimmers. I love the coordinating background.

Love love love this set!  The embossing around the edges really pop the main image.  

This set makes me think of an ideal old fashioned Christmas.  The wood balanced against the wreath and birds is perfect.

Last but certainly not least this tree set.  I'm a sucker for embossing and silver against blue is always one of my favourite combos.  I feel like the bling (did you notice the tiny stars?) really finishes the look.

I loved the package.  Thanks again Onyxnox.  You once again spoiled me and I so look forward to using these.

Alright everyone. Get those Pinterest buttons ready.  I received from Vkvhawk and oh man.... this is amazing.  And you won't believe this, but this is her first swap. 

Ready?  Ok, here we go!

First off the envelope.  My Post Master was excited when she saw the envelope.  Me too.

The front.  The bird was saying my address.

The back

Close up of the dragonfly.  I'm going to cut this out and use it on a card front.  Dragonflies have special meaning in our family and my cousin could really use one.

All the loot!  Talk about spoiling.

A beautiful watercolour bird

Gorgeous flowers.  I'm so excited.  Making pictures myself in any form (such as drawing or painting) is out of my talent range so it is special to receive these.  Truly art.

A mug rug!!  My first.  Look how amazing it is.

Stunning cards

Isn't this beautiful.  I have a project in mind for this.  I'm going to incorporate it into a Christmas present.

A feather.  This I'm going to either scrapbook or make into a card.

And last but certainly not least these fun rebent clips.

Thank you so much Vkvhawk.  I love everything.  I'd love to swap with you again.

Last, but certainly not least, I have my FABulous FABric tags and cards by Thimbles71.

Here are the tags.  They have the cutest pictures on the front. 

The cards all have a quilted charm to them.  I've never thought about doing cards this way so it has given me some inspiration for a few projects.  Love them!

Thanks so much Thimbles.  I loved your take on everything.  Smiley

Next up I have the sparkly goodness from Nowheresound!

The tags are all sorts of cute santa hats.  The nephew will love this.

Keeping with my French theme we have these cards. 

I really like how the kraft paper contrasts with the sparkles.  I think it does a great job showcasing the glitter paper.

Thanks so much Nowheresound Smiley

Next up I have my package from Kbrison.

She did a beautiful job making tags and cards for a French Christmas.  The French side of the family will treasure these.

First: The tags:

The tags have this gorgeous golden sheen over them. Is the overlay stamped?

Next are these 2 cards.  They coordinate with the tags flawlessly.  The choice of paper for the matting is excellent.

You have got to see this next style:

First view when flat:

Pull the ribbon on the top and...

Bam! 3D.  Absolutely lovely and I am going to steal the idea for a future project.

Another 3D card:

Thank you so much KBrison!  I love every card and tag.  You did an amazing job making tags and cards for my requested Noel theme.

I'm finally getting around to posting my packages.  Life got in the way this past week. 

First up is from SheridanLA

I really liked the size and colours of these cards.

This card has some beautiful marbling in Christmas colours.

This card has fun bling!

The snowflake on this card is 3D.

The spacing of these letter is perfect.  Also, the letters have stitching.

Absolutely gorgeous cards that I will be stealing ideas from.

Now for the tags:

These tags are very fun. The bling on the top one reminds me of candies.

Thanks so much SheridanLA.  I love every piece and am looking forward to sharing them with my loved ones.

Here is my late posting of the awesomeness that I received from Onyxnox.  She coordinated the tags and cards which was fun.  I liked seeing how an idea could be applied 2 ways.

These beautiful lanterns.  What I really liked about these is I was expecting the crackle background to be textured but the paper is smooth.

Next are these Christmas trees:

The trees have red bling on them and shine nicely in the lights.

I love the blue tones in these next ones:

I like the deer silhouettes on these next 2.  Also, silver embossing is awesome.  I have a thing for embossing.  I can't get enough of how fancy it looks.

The texture on these next 2 are delightful! I really like that they say Noel too.

Some fun extras!

And it was hard to pick, but I'm choosing this set as my favourite.  I've never seen anything like these before and the skates are laced up which is awesome. 

Thanks so much Onyxnox!  I loved having you share your talents with me!  You have given me lots of ideas for next time.

Here are the amazing tags and cards I received from Smashu (which I keep typing Smashy everytime I type your name.)  They feature original artwork!  And the backgrounds are perfect.

Cards First:

I love the scenic background here.  The slant of the tree is whimsical.

Look at his nose!!!  Isn't it adorable. 

The background and the candy canes on the front match perfectly. 

This card even has wire on the front!

I couldn't pick a favourite.  They are all wonderful.  I really like the size of these cards too.  I tend to stick to making 5.5x4.25 sized cards and it's a great reminder to think outside of my box.


The tags coordinate with the cards.  The background of the tree matches the light bulb card.  And in the next picture you will see the theme repeated again.  The back tag is made from chalkboard paper!

That adorable nose again and cute light bulbs!

I am going to have a very hard time parting with these tags and cards.  Thanks so much Smashu! I love them.
