Well today is the day we all show our Christmas Cards and little goodies that were inside.  The Swap was hosted by Jan, from Jan and Toms Place.  I want to thank you Jan for hosting such a wonderful swap. I had a great time with this one.  One of the traditions I love to keep for Christmas is sending out Cards. I try to get them out early in the month so everyone gets them on time.  So when Jan did a post about the swap, I jumped right in, it gave me more of a opportunity to meet new blog friends and share in the Christmas joy.  I had list of  10 that I was to send out.

So here are the dear friends I was lucky enough to send cards to them, and in turn receive  one from them.

Shelia; from notesongs

Laura; from ourscentedcottage

Ceekay; from thinkinofhome

I suppose I could have done a better job at showing all my beautiful Christmas Cards.  So I hope you can see the one  some of you have sent me.  I took a photo of the great little gifts that were inside.

I just love all the pretties I found in side the cards, not the Joy to the World in the back was not in the swap, I won that in a drawing, but I could not help my self it is just to Christmas looking. So sorry about that. lol

I added more Cards to the wall, some are form family and some are for other blog friends. I want to thank each of you for sending such beautiful cards and the small gift.  I just love being in Swaps, they are great fun and getting to meet new ladies and new blogs to visit, I have so many to visit and read it takes me two or three days to get to every one. lol  And I do make it to them and leave a comment, I keep finding more too, through others blogs and who they visit.  My list is getting pretty long. lol  How do you do it, so no one feels left out all the time, I hate to do that and make some one feel like I don't care to visit,  so if any of you have any suggestions please pass them on........    I hope you all enjoyed looking at all my lovely Christmas Cards.  Stop by Jan and see more Christmas Card Swap photos.  Have a great weekend every one. God Bless

Alaura...thank you for posting about all the beautiful cards...but may I please ask a favor. Would you take my last name off your post? Thank you.

Kathy said...

Lovely card swap post, Alaura, but oops! Please remove my last name.

Jan and Tom said...

I can NOT believe that you have posted the LAST NAME of all the gals that sent you a card. I see that a couple of the gals have already asked you to remove their names...and their names remain in your post.

PLEASE...REMOVE THE LAST NAMES AT ONCE! YOU CAN NOT DO THIS! There are predators and bad people out there in Blogland who can and will do terrible things, when finding our last names.

I am sure you would NOT want your last name POSTED all over blogland!

Hi Alaura,
Can you remove my last name as well please?

Thanks and have a nice weekend!

Shelia said...

Alaura, I have to agree with the others, please take my name of the post too! I know you were just not thinking when you did this.

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Thank you for swapping cards with me. Your card was lovely.
Would you please take my last name off of your post. I don't want any nasty person using my name. Thank you in advance!
