My Team swap

Good afternoon

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday, with my crafting teamies.   Before I let you know what we got up to, I just want to say how talented all the ladies are and they are all so generous with sharing their creations.

Once again, we all came up with such very different ideas for our swaps and make 'n' takes. 

Today I wanted to share with you, my swap.  I had to use both my favourite colour ways.  Chocolate Chip & vanilla and of course Midnight Muse and Vanilla (my very favourite combo).    You will notice that this is not just a card, it is actually a gift holder.   I struggled to think of something that I could put in my gift holder that would suit my fellow teamies and I came up with the perfect gift, a packet of seeds!  Having seen Lesley's garden and how beautifully it is kept with such a variety of colour, I knew she would appreciate it and both Liz and Ros had mentioned that they liked their gardens and allotments so.......   a  packet of seeds it was!

This was when you lifted the centre flap up in the centre of the card

I had so much fun making these and they can obviously be used for other things, money, money cards, tickets to theatre or concert etc etc.

I will, of course, be sharing all the other things we created in the near future.

Enjoy your week

Take care

I have decided to put all my teamies beautiful crafting on this one post because by Sunday I will have another set to show you!!
