Well, my friend Kathy in Australia, (Kanga as we call her), received her pocket letter from me so I'm here to share it with you. We decided to go with all three themes for this month's swap here on sb.com and hosted by Rebecca (Nunya). The themes to choose from were Spring is Here, Anything Green and Vintage or Shabby. I hope mine covered them all!
I have posted close-ups of each row to see detail better. The papers I used for the pockets I found at one of our local antique malls and I was thrilled to find them. They are Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste in Vineyard, Primrose and Dew Drops. I ran five of them through my Darice Vine Pattern embossing folder and the other four through a Sizzix embossing folder that Kelly (KVRLVN) sent me and then I sanded the raised edges down.
The fledgling robins top left is Webster's Pages Garden Gala Vellum. Little flowers from Hobby Lobby, Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass from Reneabouquets. Top middle: lace from Pamela Joy Boutique on FB. I used Lime Green Glitter Glass from Reneabouquets on the leaf die cuts. The metal flower I've had forever I painted with Ballerina, Hydrangea and Orchid Liquid Pearls. Top right: Tutu pink mini prills from Carri (Caletts). The wreath is from Jolee's Boutique.
Middle row: Girl image from Pinterest, Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets. Middle image from Marylou (Meggie's Nana), die cut from Amazon, lace under it and on the side bar was from Pamela Joy Boutique.

Right: This was a doozy...I fussy cut the beautiful goldfinch and branches out of a very delicate printed napkin!!! Believe me when I say that took some doing!! LOL Spring sticker I've had in my stash for ages from the dollar store! Gold Raspberry Glitter Glass on the flower and by the leaves was from Gone Artsy.
