January's Paper Swap

I was involved in the Paper Swap hosted by a lovely blogger by the name of Lewendula of Woven Letters. She hosts a different type of paper swap every month. February's swap is up now for sign ups. Hop on over if you want to join in the fun. It is an international swap, which makes it even more fun.  This month I had the honor of swapping with a very generous and lovely lady by the name of Sylvia of Studio Sylvia. She lives in Australia. She sent a parcel that was like Christmas. Look at all of these goodies! It was a Card swap and she tossed in specially made papers from Germany that she embellished with some wonderful sparkly colors and stamps, etc.

These are so pretty with the antiquing she did, the torn edges, the stamping and decorated envelopes.

These are the mini cards she included. I love the reds and the flowers. So sweet. 

Look at the watercolors and the stamping and the glittery sheen. It is hard to see that part, but trust me in person it is wonderful. Thank you again, Sylvia! Sylvia has an etsy shop where she offers her papers & jewelry. Visit her blog to see what she is up to.
