A RAK & a Swap

Happy Sunday ~

I'm hoping to hit the craft room some time today. It's been raining overnight so is the perfect weather for it. In the meantime let me show you a couple of cards I've received from two of my JAI design team friends...

The first I received back in August from the beautiful Tania Gould - can't believe I haven't posted this until now *I'm hanging my head in shame Tan*. Don't you love her colouring, it's such a gorgeous little image. You can't see it well in the photo but the little girl is 'popped' up on her chair - there are lots of lovely little details on this card. The message inside was lovely also, but I'm not sharing that one :o)

This next card is a 'swap' I received from the lovely and talented Bronwyn Eastley just last week. We JAI dt girls decided to do a swap amongst ourselves and Bron sent hers separately thinking she was super late ... turns out I received her card first and I wonder how Bron knew I loved her Choc Chip and Crumb Cake colour combo the best - very clever and thoughtful Bron - thank you!!!

If you want to make one of these gorgeous scallop easel cards, made famous by Bron over recent weeks then visit here for her tutorial.

Hope to be back with more soon - hmmm let's see if I can do another week of daily posts. Best be showing some Christmas cards soon given it's almost that time of year again :o)
