Craft Swap and Blue Monday

blue_monday[3] craftaholics

Such a beautiful day; the sun is shining in Colorado and that makes me smile!

Another reason to smile is that I am enjoying the treasures I received from Ashley in Craftaholics Anonymous’ gift exchange. I am also participating in Blue Monday since I have some new “blues” I can feature. Be sure to hop over to visit Sally for the Blue Monday party and Craftaholics Anonymous to see all the handmade crafts. You will be inspired to make some new things! Click on the buttons above to instantly transport to those sites!

Ashley sent this darling rag wreath ornament. Isn’t it just so cute? What she didn’t know is that light/ice/aqua/turquoise-y blue is my favorite color combination!

Ashley also sent these matching cards and tag. I won’t want to use these because I like them so much!  Ashley is a “Stampin’ Up” demonstrator. It sure would be fun to have access to all the cool ribbons, papers and other embellishments. You can check out Ashley’s site at www.allicreate.blogspot.com.
