GARDEN VARIETY





My good friend Lenna Andrews is hosting a postcard swap sponsored by Alphastamps, and these are my entries. They are still not done, close, but still need a bit more.
Alphastamps has a ton of fantastic products, and with the exception of the ribbons and the vintage buttons that are from my stash, everything else here is from Alphastamps. The background papers, the women, and all the different garden and botanical images. Even those brass leaves are from Alphastamps. I think I enjoyed this swap the most so far, but I still have to do an atc also for this. I got a bit more blingier than I usually do, but I fell in love with the sparkle and I almost hate to give up some of these with the beautiful buttons, but with swaps hosted by Lenna, you are garaunteed to receive amazing returns and they are from all over the world! I highly recommend Lenna's swaps if you are interested in trying it, you will not be dissapointed!
Thanks for visiting and all your support everyday, and I hope you are having a fantastic week!

sharon, these postcards for the swap are incredible, truly! they have such a quiet beauty about them even with the extra 'bling'! I seriously love them and can't wait to see them. So far, everyone who has entered has sent an ATC with their postcards, but it is optional . . . of course I'd love to see one from you! For your readers, you can see all the entries as they come in on my creative swaps blog! The swap is full now with 50 participants. i'm so lucky to have you participating, sharon!
