Beautiful Blue and red swaps.....

I'm still sorting out the craft room,
and just beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel LOL...
as well as floor and desk space LOL!!
Before the mahoosive overhaul of my crafty area...
....I recently took part in a couple of fun swaps run by the lovely Linda over at...
 January's swap was a 'Thinking of you' theme...and BLUE de-stash...
(you have to send a card, tag and some blue destash  to your swap partner.)
 I sent my swap package to the lovely Mrs A 
...and I received from my 'Thinking of you' goodies from the talented Linda...
 This is what I sent to Mrs A..... 
My card & A tag...

I just ADORE the vintage blue birds, ribbons, lace and buttons!

..OH...and just look at this fabulous Blue destash...
...the vintage bingo card, tiles that spell JAN!, yarn flowers, ration discs, buttons, lace and the fab yoyo button pin brooch!!...(SO ME!!)
Oh, these will all definitely be  put to good use in some of my crafting projects in the near future!
