Christmas Cards and Card Swaps 9 and 10

Happy New Year!  Hope you all had a brilliant Christmas and that you found time to sit back and relax.
Yesterday I finally got my act together and got round to photographing the lovely handmade cards I received from friends and from my Card Swap group.  The first one is from Ann, who was my official swapper for December.  Isn't it beautiful?  I love the red card with the cream and the champagne glimmer paper - it's stunning.

The next card is from Vicky.  I love the colours and the contemporary design, it's completely my thing.  The red, turquoise and white work so well together  - Vicky is a genius!

The next card is from Zoe, another member of the group.  It's such a simple card, yet so effective.  I still shy away from Washi tape (even though I have quite a collection), but it looks fab on this card, and the colour scheme is great.

Sue, another group member, sent me this beautiful card.  The textures on this card are fantastic, and I love all the little extras.  Sue is such a talented card maker and makes stunning cards.

The final card today is from Aileen and was November's swap - the challenge was to use a favourite stamp.  The colours are fabulous and I think the stamp set is so pretty.

I feel so lucky to have received such beautiful cards.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what the lovely Jane has planned for the card group for 2014.  Right, time to strike while the iron is hot, and I'm off to make some cards - Mark's birthday is on Tuesday so I had better get my act together!

Take care
