Pretty Pink Friendship......

It's so good to see that the lovely Linda
from back after long break,
 and as decided to get us all swapping again.
 I've taken part in some of Linda's fabulous swaps in the past...
So, I was looking forward to see what she has in store for us.

 Beginning September 1st, Linda will be hosting a swap EVERY MONTH for an entire year. Each month we will swap the same 3 things, but each month will have a different theme.

 So the first swap for October.... all about friendship
This is what I sent to Marie....
card and tag created by Jan (ME)
My Pink goodies for Marie
 Instructions said to include "One Pink" item.  Mmmm I couldn't choose just one!!
...washi tape, ribbon, buttons, beads, flowers and a ballerina.
and these are the lovelies that I received from my other swap partner

Beautifully made friendship card from Mrs A...I love all the details outside and inside the card....and there are sweet words on the reverse of the tag. This would also make a perfect bookmark too!
..and Mrs A sent me a bundle of gorgeous PINK lace.....Oh.I do LURVE a bit of this will definitely put to good use in one of my crafting projects in the near future!
 Thank you again Mrs A!!
and I got some fabby-de-doo-dah news...
