C.A.T.S. Swap - August 2011


Hi crafters!  Hope your week is going well so far and I'm sure we're all looking forward to the upcoming weekend!  Today I have something very special to share with you.  The artist is a sweet friend of mine and many of you know her in blogland as "Mama" of LuvntheJourney!  Well, she was my partner for August for the CATS swap hosted by Joy.  You sign up and are committed for three months.  Go check out the details on Joy's blog...I believe the sign up is still open!  

Going back to my partner for September, when I say "artist" I mean she's extremely talented and often times I wish I could craft with her all day!  You'll see what I mean when you see her awesome creation below.  The theme for August was ribbons and she made the cutest, sweetest little velvet flowers!  I had to ask her to tell me how she did it!  Anyway, here's her awesome creations:
Isn't this an incredible triple easel card?!!!  And her coloring is just awesome.  If only you could see it IRL.  I'm so happy because I get to have several colored images from her!  If you want to know how Mama made this card, go check our her blog here for all the details.  In addition to a card, she created a matching tag, and that's what CATS stands for . . . Card And Tag Swap!  
One more thing I want to share with you...Mama also sent me a Birthday Gift and look at how she wrapped it...and colored this beautiful Anya:
Oh besides being talented, she is so sweet.  She wished me a Happy "21st" Birthday and I admit, those younger days were great ones, but now I can only wish to be young and vigorous again, LOL!  Thank you so much Mama!
I thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed seeing this lovely creation I received.  
Until next time, enjoy life, stay safe, and hug the ones you love.

A Hug for you, from me,
