My Swap Card and others

Hi peoples
I apologise for my slight absence. I do try and post at least once a week but 3 workshops over the weekend (Fri, Sat & Sun) have kept me busy and having to do my *proper* job today at the office was well quite exhausting. I think I work harder as a demo than at my real job tho lol!!! Well enough of me complaining because I wouldnt have it any other way!!!
So onto the task at hand...

Here is my SWAP card I made for a Team Day we had the weekend before last...

I made 16 of these little suckers which equates to cutting out... um about 180 flowers and leaves! Lucky I enjoy cutting things out!!!

Here they are in all their glory...

Im thinking of posting a tutorial about how I made this card so Im not going to give anything away about it other than what you see... I just have to take a few photos of how I did the flowers then it will be up and running!!

So thats me out of the way. There are so many talented girls in our group here are a few from the day...

Tracey isnt it just adorable...

and Michelle... (sorry its a bit blurry dont know what happened there...)

All the swaps were beautiful! I love participating in swaps because it gives me some great ideas so thanks girls!!!
Thanks for lookin

PS I also wanted to say to all the people that are affected by those horrendus bushfires especially in VIC but also in NSW that your Aussie brothers and sisters are all thinking of you in this trying time. It is such a horrific tragedy and my heart goes out to all of you who have lost pretty much everything especially loved ones. I just cry when I see the news and think who would do such a thing and I hope they catch them and make them pay. Lots of hugs from WA.
