Big Blog Card Swap

A couple of weeks ago I signed up to take part in the Big Blog Card Swap. The idea behind the swap is that a group of people take part by making a card each and sending it to another member of the swap. This swap was organised by Sarah at Wrapped up with string and Naomi at Leaves in the spring. All I had to do was email through my name and address and Naomi and Sarah sorted out the cycle of who was sending where. I only posted my card yesterday but I wanted to show you the one I received in the post.

This card is gorgeous and made up of lots of little folds of patterned paper with a ribbon and pearl detail. I received it from Hannelore at Astrid's Garden, you can have a look in her folksy shop- Astrid's Garden or blog- Paper, Beads & Inspiration. I also wanted to show you a little picture of Astrid's Garden business card and sticker label as I think they are some of the prettiest I have seen!


  1. That's so pretty and I'm so excited to see it! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. They are lovely, I'm posting my card swap card today and silly me hadn't thought about getting one sent to me, looking forward to that now!

  3. What a pretty card! I'm definitely going to have a go at the pattern :) thank you so much for taking part in the swap - I hope you enjoyed it!
