Red Lead Art Sisters

A few weeks back, I posted here the three tags I made for the Red Lead Hello Spring Tag Swap. This one caught the eye of Red Lead sisters Chris and Sharon, owners of Red Lead Paperworks in St. Louis, MO.

I belong to the Red Lead Yahoo Group where they featured this tag on the home page, making me the Home Page Diva for a few days.  My swap sisters are very talented, so when I'm chosen as Home Page Diva, I consider it quite an honor.  The Yahoo Group also is the place to sign up for the Art Sisters Swaps.

The Red Lead swaps feature products offered by Red Lead, either from their brick and mortar store or the on-line store.  For example,  for the tag above, I used the ATC fragile stamp, Ranger distress inks, and the tag itself, all purchased at Red Lead.  We also send a $5.00 check which covers the cost of return postage and some great extras.

The swap mail arrived a few days ago.  Let's start with the awesome way Chris and Sharon package our swap exchanges.  Everything is wrapped inside a cellophane bag and tied up with a pretty bow.  Presentation is everything!
And here are the three tags I received in the swap from my Red Lead Art Sisters, Debbie, Dottee, and Lisa.  Each tag has fantastic detail, special elements, and wonderful trims.  I treasure all three of them!

 And here are the extra goodies.  The bunny is a Red Lead exclusive stamp.  What fun!

The Language of Flowers ATC swap and the Chotski Pin Swap are going on right now.
If you love swaps and Red Lead collage sheets and stamps, then this is the art group for you!  I try to do at least two swaps a year with this very talented group.  And it's a real treat for me when I actually make it into the St. Louis store.
