Who doesn't like handmade flowers? I know that I do! I ran this challenge a while back and had a lot of fun with it. I'm going to run it a little differently this go 'round.

The due date for all flowers to be received by me is May 1st.


**Place your flowers in individual bags for each member in your group. Be sure that your screen name and your name are included on each bag. Also be sure that your group is listed on each bag. This makes it easier and quicker for me to swap them out. It also ensures that the receiver can give the proper person credit when they use your flower on a project.

**Don't forget to include a self addressed return mailer with your flowers**


~*~*~ I will pack each package up and weigh them. I will then send those who want to pay return postage via paypal a PM with their total cost for shipping. Anyone who does not wish to pay via paypal, can include the same amount of postage that it cost to mail your flowers, plus 2 extra $0.44 postage stamps. Any unused postage will be mailed back to you.~*~*~


**Make 3 flowers for each person in the group that you are in.** You can make any type of flower that you wish, as long as the main color is the same as the group that you signed up for. Have fun with this swap!

You can make paper posies, roses, ribbon flowers, tulle flowers, folded flowers...anything that you can think of. The sky is the limit with this swap.

Mail all flowers by the deadline to:
Amy Hudson
1164 N 1st St
Carbon Hill, AL 35549


paypal account~ amyhudson21@yahoo.com

*When seding the payment via paypal, click on send money and then click on "personal" and then choose "other". This will not charge fees to the sender or the receiver*

When I receive all of the flowers, it will take me a day or so to swap them out and get them back in the mail to you. I assure you that I will do this as quickly as possible so that you can get them back and get started using them on those layouts, cards or altered projects.

Please feel free to ask any questions or make any suggestions.

You are gonna love the March flowers that I'm sending to you Sandy. They are all small punched flowers. They are 2 inches or less. I'll keep that in mind for this month too Sandy.

no problem ladies, I know I should have put it out there early on, but about an 1" 1 1/2 flowers are just fine with me and that can be for all of the flower swaps Amy hostess, I am always here for her swaps, but if you have already started that's not a big deal because I know what I get back will be just as beautiful!!
Thanks Amy you must know a little about me!! LOL

I am going to say most of mine probably finish in about 1-2" the pink unfortunatly has one larger flower in it is almost 3 but it was too pretty not to give away! Oh PS red is all cut out and ready to be sprayed with water, glues together, rolled and folded and stickled maybe give them a pearl who knows... thats tomorrows endevour for the rest of tonight I am going to sit and relax... the other half told me I had to leave my table alone... what he didnt say was that I couldnt bring my gypsy with me..
I have something like 30 different flower designs on that thing.... guess I will try to come up with some more tonight.

I've got you down for it Melody. Thanks!

Sandy, I just got a couple of new flower punches last month and I hadn't really had the chance to play with them. So all of the flowers that I made were with a couple of my punches.

I've already got the yellow ones made. They are only about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 inches in diameter, but they are puffy. They are carnations.
