One Card Swap

Here's a card I received in the mail last week, created by my new friend, Tracy, with whom I was randomly paired with for a "One Card Swap". Isn't it the cutest? I was so impressed with Tracy's coloring and shading, and with her neat and precise card making. I also loved the way the colors she chose coordinated so well. Thank you, Tracy, receiving your card really made my day special! You can visit Tracy at her blog, "Tracy's Happy Place" where she shares more of her talent and creativity. She has a fun monthly rak, the Aloha Rak which you can join to share almost anything you've created plus other goodies with crafters from all over. And if you are a procrastinator (like me!) you might enjoy Tracy's Christmas Card Challenge, which might be just the solution to getting those Christmas cards done on time this year!

The "One Card Swap" that Tracy and I participated in is the brainstorm of our fellow blogging friend, Teri at "Big Ideas from A Little Girl". This is a brand new card monthly card swap if you are interested in exchanging just one card. It's a fun, low-keyed swap and great way to make new friends and meet other cardmakers. I will be posting the card I sent to Tracy later after I hear that she's received it. I had to scramble to finish and mail her card to her by the deadline after the Valentines Day projects were done...yup, last minute as usual. (Sorry, Tracy!)

What a darling card with Monkey Flower Face.
Thanks for stopping by my blog to leave such nice comments. I appreciate..~~ I buy that fringe at Hobby Lobby and sew it onto the tote/purse. Sort of gives it an extra ooooomph.
