New Cornbread Kid Swap is open for Sign ups....

Hi everyone...
Well I finally got the next swap together...

It is called "Love of hearts, since I got more vote for Love... so this swap is only called Love of Hearts, but your heart must have an Americana look to it !
So you will be right on time for Lincoln BD, Washington BD,Presidents Day, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July and Veterans Day to boot !
But also have a heart shape an be about your love of ATC cards.
Those are the rules...

The holiday mail made this swap a little hard...but we made it. It's over.
I have some wonderful other ATC swap for them.
Everyone that received a gift from me... (7 lucky folks) I do hope you all enjoyed them.
And Thank you to Liz and Keni for both of your wonderful gifts. These two ladies mailed me 2 wonderful ATC cards...which was a unexpected treat. And they both were beautiful.
Well on to the next swap as I said is...coming soon. Join as a follower so you will know what going on here.
