card deck swap





I am very fortunate to have found the wonderful Jessica Brogan's card deck swap.  I joined in the latest mini swap with the theme of 'Permission to...'  You can read all about it here.

Altering the cards was the easy part for me.  So easy that I got carried away in the creating and forgot to take any photos.  There was paint and there was washi and there was fun :)

Then came the journalling and I was struggling (yeah, I know, no surprise there!)  I wanted my 'permissions' to be meaningful to me and not just empty words, and it took a lot of thinking.  Of course here I had lots of time to spare and part way through took a photo...



I seem to have deleted my photos of the finished cards... either that or I have "put them somewhere safe"!  Boo!  However they have been sent off to USA, shuffled and sent off around the world.  I can share with you the cards that I received in return...


An eclectic mix from all over the world.  Different styles, different colour ways, lots of loveliness.  I want to thank Jessica, Sheri, Sarah, Pam, Peggy, Lindsay, Michelle, Glenda, Kit, and Anonymouses, and over the next few weeks I'll be trying to visit you online to say thank you :)


This one caught my eye.  I love the colour, the shapes and the words :)


And this one was amazing.  So much thought and design gone in to it.  Plaster hands holding mini cards...


...each with a permission on the reverse.

I so love joining in with these swaps and hope when the next one comes around I'll be well enough to join in.
