More cards from Linda

As I've mentioned before I love being in the Hero Arts Flickr group for all the inspiration and fun. It has also been brilliant getting to know the lovely and talented ladies in the group like Linda (ScrappinBari on Flickr). Because of a comment that she left on one of my cards, we recently ended up doing a little card swap.

Linda surprised me with this absolutely adorable card which I had included in my favourites in the Flick group. The flower box with the beautiful flowers has such gorgeous dimension, colours and colouring.

Stamps (Hero Arts) - Curly Flowers & Easter Set AR176 (exclusive to Archiver's)

And who could resist this cute little bunny peeking out from the ribbon and flowers?

Linda also sent me a mini card and ATC which she had made at an Archiver's class. The mini card is 3 inches square and is such a dote! If you know me you'll know I love sewing so I've put the card on the shelf above my sewing machine so I can see it as I'm sewing away. I wish my sewing machine looked as pretty as this one!

Stamps (Hero Arts) - Sew Artsy

Unfortunately my photo doesn't capture how beautiful Linda's ATC is in real life. The distressing and stamping are wonderful and there is such a delicate sparkle off the pretty butterflies.

Stamps (Tim Holtz) - Urban Chic

Here is a link to Linda's photostream where you can see lots more of her gorgeous cards.

This is the card I sent to Linda (more details here)

Crackled Butterflies

and the ATC is below. The butterfly is embossed on a shimmery fabric using sparkly embossing powder and the background is one of the beautiful papers from a Kaiser Craft pad that Paula and Dawn sent me. Thanks again Paula and Dawn!

Thanks again Linda for the fun swap and for all the gorgeous goodies you sent me to play with!
