A Very Peachy Swap

The April Swap in A Swap For All Seasons had a Mother's Day theme & the color was peach.  I don't often work with peach, so it was a good challenge.  The beautiful card above was the one I received from my swap partner, Jayne.  It has just the right bit of sparkle to it...simply lovely.
 
This is my tag from Jayne.  I love how she enclosed it in a little coordinating sleeve...and those ladies look as if they're ready to go shopping at Selfridge's and hopefully run into Mr. Selfridge himself!
 
This is just part of the wonderful peach destash that Jayne sent my way. 
 
And this is the rest of the wonderful destash...I'll have fun with all these peachy goodies!  Everything was wrapped in a peach towel...but the kittens took that over right away & it was already in the laundry when I took these photos.
 
Thanks so much, Jayne...I love all my swap stuff!

This is the package I sent out to Sherry in CA. 
 
Inside was this card...I love those little girls with their tea party.
 
This is the tag I created for Sherry.  The flowers are peach lily of the valley, but they remind me of the Coral Bells that my Mom & Grandma used to grow when I was a little girl...MANY moons ago!
 
The destash I sent to Sherry included some vintage lace...
 
...some of my hand dyed ribbon & tags...
 
...and some other peachy & vintage style destash.  Sherry said she loved it all...so that makes me very happy.  Sherry...it was fun to get to know you, too!
 
I'm taking a bit of a break from the next swap, but the theme is Weddings & Love & the colors are white & ivory.  It's too late to sign up, but Linda will have a giveaway on April 15th...and you can check the blog along the way for some ideas & vintage images, too.  Thanks to Linda for hosting yet another fun swap!

  2. Everyone's peach projects were super creative this month. Love the image you used on your card and the hand dyed ribbon you share is always a special treat! The card and tag you received from Jayne are gorgeous, too! We'll miss you in May but hopefully see you back in June.
