Wedding Swap

I  decided I needed to post these pictures before I leave on my trip.  Sorry the pictures aren't better.
I signed up for my first swap with Linda of A Swap for all Seasons.  You swap with one person while another person swaps with you. The person having my name was Elizabeth Quigley.  This was a wedding swap.  You were to send a card, a tag, and some white/cream items from your stash of supplies.  This picture is hard to tell but Elizabeth sent me a beautiful card and tag that she made.  Also some pretty lace, and tags that she cut out.  There was some washi tape, a LOVE bingo card in a cute black sack that she decorated so sweet.  My favorite item was the olden hankie.  It reminds me of the hankie of my grandmother's that I used in my wedding.  Thanks Elizabeth.

The items below were what I sent to Becky Garrison of The Capricious Crafter.  She makes beautiful cards, I mean beautiful.  I knew I couldn't get close to the quality of her cards.  I put together the wedding card with rub ons, lace and cardboard cutouts.  The tag I had purchased but it had the perfect saying for this swap.
The little bride I had.  The lace, ribbon, white love stickers and buttons I got at the Jellibean warehouse/Vintage store.
And you saw these last week.  My first attempt of a bride and groom.

So there you have another fun swap.
I have signed up for three more.  I think this is an obsession.....but a fun one.
I am packed and now need to get some zzzzzzzs. Good night, sleep tight.
