I am so excited to be taking part in my first swap. It's being hosted on The Stamping Boutique's Crafter's Cafe. The spec's are to use pink or red beads and hearts if you have them. So yesterday I went shopping and not a single red heart to be found. I had a specific design in mind so needless to say I was disappointed. I did find some purple ones so I bought them and brought them home and made them anyway. They turned out so pretty!
Now I had to figure out what to do for the swap. My husband was going out for a hair cut today so I asked him to stop at a store and look for some red hearts for me. He's so sweet about doing things like this. He's not artistic at all and so out of his element but, he always does it for me and with a smile. Success! He found some and so I repeated the pins in red and in 15 minutes (not including dry time) they were ready to be sent out to the swap. I loved that it was a quick project and that they turned out exactly as I saw it in my mind's eye.
So for the swap:
and for the first batch:
What do you think? Would you like one of these to come to you if you were in a swap?
I'm also going to enter them in Tuesday Alchemy challenge "My Hearts All a Flutter" wish me luck!
Another Challenge I'm entering these into is CDAC "Anything Goes Challenge"
