Swapping

I took a really long break from swapping. But this one, hosted by my dear cyber friend, Joyce, was one I couldn't resist! It felt great to create something special for a special someone. My partner was Marie, and I made her this canvas in reds/teals. I wanted it to be happy and cheerful and something she would really want to hang.
And take a look at the stunningly gorgeous pastel one I received in return!
She sent some wonderful goodies along as well. And I just LOVE the tags she tucked in there too! I will be hanging this in my bedroom, and will think of Marie each time I see it. Thanks Marie for the wonderful artwork, and thanks to Joyce for hosting this fun swap!

Hi Linda - love the pretties you have posted here. Reminiscing about the matchbox swap. Miss your swaps a bunch - any more in the future or are you done hosting for awhile?
