International Card Swap: POSTAL!!!

Hello swappers!  It's 2:30 am right now, and I just finished packing all 6 packages - ready to be mailed first thing tomorrow morning.  I am very happy with all the cards, and I hope you'll enjoy them as well when they reach you.  All of these packages have the same contents, except for the winner.  Can you guess which one it is???

First, I would like to thank all seven of you who signed up for this swap.    If you missed my post in the previous blog, Lisa couldn't mail her cards on time due to personal reasons.  However, she still played an important part in this swap.  Thank you ladies for the extra time and effort you spent and I appreciate all your hardwork.  I really had fun! 

Also, I would like to thank Claire (Korea) of Multiply and Anita (Canada) of Splitcoaststampers for donating goodies for this swap.  I would also like to thank those who helped me pick the top card.  I have to admit that it was hard to choose, and I had to seek aid from my fellow crafters and friends.  Hugs to Claire, Lisa and family, Alice Koh of TDS, MaryKaye, art teacher Mrs. Tenbusch, Tracey, one of the students from work and DH Duane. 
This swap made me realize how we are all different when it comes to styles and approaches when it comes to our dear hobby.  Even the judges themselves have different preferences.

Before I go to bed, let me share with you the card I made for you ladies.  I love the outcome of this one.  It's my first time to try Martha Stewart Glitter and Tsukineko Glue Pad.  The background stamp is Withered by Stampin Up, and the sentiment is by Cloud 9 Designs.  The smaller background is CTMH and the bird image is by Inkadinkado.  I used black Prima flowers, and black brads by The Paper Studio.

Ok, time for me to go to bed.  It's really late!  I have to wake up before the post office closes.
