It's not a MYSTERY any longer....

I must confess, I swap with THE most awesome group of crafters!  Together we decided to 'mystery' swap.  One person would pick an image or embellie, or whatnot, send it to the group and everyone would make and send back four cards to the hostess.

This time around, I was the hostess.  What was I thinking?  Having a swap due during the holidays?? 

Needless to say, the swap is now due and I am about to swap them out (don't worry, it won't be til after Christmas, because I am cookie making and gift wrapping up until then).

So, anywho....here's my version of the Mystery Swap.  This is In the Spotlight Anya (she was the mystery image) and the mystery embelly was the flowered tape you see across the bottom of my card (this item could be used however the swapper wanted).


Thanks for stopping in during this busy time!
Huggz,
April
