I am always nervous about the swaps in case parcels don't arrive started getting nervous just before Christmas as Norma had let me know she had posted so I started counting down Christmas day came and went and I was going to visit my kids (38 and 37 ) but still kids to me, also to see the grandkids 12 10 and 4 all very exciting stuff.

Arrive home on Thursday and guess what parcel had arrived and what a parcel this is such a special parcel do I want to share, ok the rules say I must so here goes

Beautiful cards, thank you for sharing. I like the last card because of the bright colors. Cute little flowers in an umbrella, very nice design. But I think the first card is so lovely, I love snow and snowflakes...
Beautiful embellishments, I think it will be hard for you to use those on cards and send them (to me...😊) to someone.
Very nice swap!

Now who says our Group doesn't have talented Members. When Norma first joined us, I was not sure what to expect. But she certainly did not disappoint us. What great Cards she made. I too love the Umbrella design best, but also like the snowflake Card. I certainly like the Embellishments. I have a few of those myself. Problem, I will never use any of those Embellishments. I just hate to part with them. To pretty
What a great and different Swap. Will be difficult to choose a Winner.

Oh my goodness!! I know that each of us has unlimited possibilities to create cards BUT some of the cards I make are put to shame with other cards made by some of our swap members. Norman's cards are so different and beautiful. I wish we all lived very close together so we could get together to improve skills. Voting will be hard. I love the umbrella card. What a great idea.

Dotcarp your Cards are just as nice as the rest of the Groups creation. I am glad we all have a different style, cause that is the only way we learn from each other. I too wish we could get together for a Workshop one day. Oh what fun that would be. We still have to wait for your Cards to arrive, before we can start voting. But I agree, it will be a difficult decision.

I see your remarks every time we post a Card. Maybe you change your mind in the New Year and join our Swap. We sure would love to have you. Knowing the kind of Cards you make, you would fit right in with the Group. So come and join us.

Beautiful cards! My favorite is the umbrella cards. I love the colors and the little flowers. The snowflake card is beautiful. too. You received some wonderful embellishments, too.

Please don't wait for my cards to arrive, Elfie. It was my mistake. They won't get there for 2 weeks. Please just vote.

I agree with Roseanna, let's wait for your cards - if all the others agree too.

I don't want to start the New Year on a bad foot. We will wait for Dot's Cards, and Roseanna will have someone post them for her. I already talked with her about it.
Expectations are running high on the Winner of the Card of the month. I just hope you are not disappointed with the Prize the Winner gets. It is just a Token, to let Members know, that there hard work is appreciated.

Absolutely, WAIT for Dottie's cards --

Now about Norma's -- I was astounded by the Snowflake card Norma made -- just loved it - the colors and the delicacy of the card -- then I saw the umbrella -- what beautiful colors and details. I love them both for different reasons -- so I can't say I like one more than the other at this point -- need my time to decide !

Now to see Dottie's -- then all will be in?? Can't remember who is missing? Glad someone is keeping track!!

Elfie, no one could possibly be displeased with the prize that will be given. We are all grown up girls and all of us have few expectations. I'm so pleased with the things I have received in my swap. Its like Christmas to get so many embellishments to use later. please don't worry, Elfie, what you do to organize these swaps is present enough for me.
