January/February Secret Sister Swap

I'm having a lot of fun with the Secret Sister Swap.   Always fun to send and receive happy mail.

Here's the card I made for Belia.   I inked up "Polka Dots" by Whimsy Stamps with Copics.  Topped the "Stitched Borders 2" dies by Pretty Pink Posh with "Small Hydrangia Blooms" by Poppy Stamps, and sprinkled on some Fran-tage from HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  Also, added a couple of laser cut glittered leaves and "Spring" sentiment which are by and from Island Scrapbooking.  

This is the color inspiration we followed for this swap.

Here are a few goodies I sent with my swap to Belia.

Coincidentally, she was my "secret sister" too.   I love this card she made.  So beautifully colored and perfect for posting today....Valentine's Day.

But wait, she didn't send me one card.  She surprised me with two.  What an awesome flip card and sentiment.  THANK YOU BELIA!!!!

Hope you're all enjoying Valentine's Day with your loved ones!!!!  Chow and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.

What an awesome swap! Both of you surprised each other with some very creative cards. The stamp that you used looks like a Precious Moment stamp even though it's not. Your coloring with your Copics is amazing.

I agree the Secret Sister Swap is always so much fun to participate in. Maybe we will get paired up again one day soon. :)
