Swaps! Destash! Yellow!

Hello Friends!
I have a wee bit of catching up to do,
as I have received some lovely things from my swap partners this month.

This beautiful tag is from Marti,
made for a fabric and lace tag swap in the
Marie Antoinette MailArt Group:

 Isn't it lovely?
Thank you Marti!!

My swap partners from the monthly  A Swap for All Seasons swaps
continue to delight me!

This lovely card and tag for February's RED swap
is from Linda:

And her sweet red destash items:

 March's swap had a yellow/Spring theme.
My lovely card and tag from May:

And look at all the fun goodies from May's yellow destash:
Thank you so much, ladies, what fun!!

I will post my March creations once my partner,
who just happens to be Marti ;) receives them!


These next three ATCs I made for a swap hosted by
Kimberly of artJOYstuff.
The challenge was to use ONLY vintage materials.
Sooo these were made with vintage photographs,
vintage postcard and flowers cut from vintage greeting cards.
The backgrounds are made with vintage ledger paper (1850!),
vintage letters and music paper.
Buttons, vintage tatted lace, seals, millinery flowers
and random bits were used to embellish the cards.
I really had a lot of fun dipping into my stash to create these:

Since I have been working with yellow this month,
here are some sunshine-y yellow images for you:

I love the ATCs you have created for Kimberly' VINTAGE swap. I am in the same swap, and I do hope I'll get one of your ATCs in my little package.

Wow, this is a catch up post! I'm glad you liked my tag, and you sure received a bunch of beautiful things this month! What a wonderful swap month for you! I can't wait to see what you created. Happy Pink Saturday! Marti

I haven't been by in a long long time. You've changed your background/header. It's nice. You've featured some nice tags and some nice freebies. I have several of your freebie images. I think the dragon flies, the lady bug girls and the little girl at the beach (with sand in her hand). They are in my desktop photos and I always enjoy seeing them. I think I'll add the rose. I'm sure hoping that I left enough pixels in the images I posted on my blog today. I chose fewer pixels for some reason. Maybe because they don't have text ??

Anyway - enjoyed my visit. Happy Pink Saturday!
Thanks, Jenn

Kathryn Ross said...

Gorgeous!!! I'm agog with delight and inspiration! My own humble forays into expanding my mixed media work needs a shot of Rainebeau to kick it up a notch or two. I have only recently opened my Etsy shop featuring my handcrafted items and thrifty finds. Oh - blessings to you as you have blessed me with your swap images, free images, and plenty of new ideas to mull over . . .
Following you from Pink Saturday . . .
Joy!
Kathy
