Aussie Notecard 2014 Swap - 'Hello Birdy'

Hi There Blogging Friends!  I just couldn't wait to show you some of the fabulous cards that my swap girls created for our first month of this years 'Aussie Notecard' Swap.

The first one was created by Linda  and sent to Vicki.  The colours are gorgeous and the sweetest little bird is gently resting on some beautiful flowers and foliage.  The delightful saying "life is a matter of moments" just begs us to slow down and smell the flowers....just love it!

The next one was sent to Linda by Tanya.  Don't you just love these two sweet birdies, sitting close together and brushed over with a sweep of gold.  The beautiful mauve roses and bit of bling make it "oh so dreamy"!

The next one was created by Janette and sent to Diane.  It is a beautiful mix of pretty background paper, sweet flowers, glitter glue and the boldest little birdy of all;  the Blue Wren.  Janette was true to the species by ensuring that the colours of her birdy were as they are in the wild.   A wonderful card Janette!

Finally; here is Jenny's creation that she sent to Tanya.  What a fantastic view from Jenny's rustic window and best of all a little birdy stopping by on the outside window sill, to share a little message.  The colours are beautifully executed for the creation of a gentle and thought provoking it also!

These are just a few of the cards from ladies that do not have blogs.  Next post will be a sneek peek at February's subject 'Bold and Bright"..........oh its a lot of fun!

Aussie Notecard Swap and Card Making in the Heat

Hi There Blogging Friends!   Here is a pic of the card I made for Janette in my Aussie Notecard 2014 Swap.  The January theme was 'Hello Birdy' and at first it appears that my birdy was flying by his birdcage, but the second pic will reveal that he was flying to spend some time with his girlfiend who is in a very secret place.

 Below is the card I received from Vikki.  We are all trying to do some sort of technique or something different with our swap cards and I just love the fact that Vikki did her own artwork on the my card.  Isn't it the sweetest birdy!! most people in Australia at the moment I have been feeling the hot weather, so I sat in front of my air-con for a couple of days and made the cards below.   It was fun playing with my dies, embossing folders and punches.

Hi There Blogging Friends!  I started 2013 with one tag swinging on my sweet vintage coathanger, but it now has 12 gorgeous tags from the lovely ladies that participated in my 2013 Aussie Tag Swap.
It is such a joy to look up at it from my studio desk and remember all the delightful months of opening the mail to find such talented pieces of work.  Thankyou to those who participated!

Below are a couple of tags that I didn't show on my blog, so here is an upclose look at the December tag I received from Vicki.....'A Summer Christmas'.

and the November Tag I received from Elaine; 'Fashions on The Field'

and the September Tag from Tanya; 'Time'

Also, this was my 'Pumpkin Patch' tag which I sent over to my partner in USA from 'An Altered Place'

Finally, this is the November tag I created for the 'Fashions on the Field'.

We are now underway with our 2014 swap the 'Aussie Notecard Swap', so my next post will have some pics of our first subject 'Hello Birdy'.......pop back to check them out!
