MISTERY swap numero UNO :o)

*Click on any picture to enlarge, can you  see the fire 'sparkle' ? *

My dear stamping friend Jeanette came up with the most wonderful idea on how to have a closed swap using 'mistery' images to send to a group of friendly partecipants, who in turn will host every couple months, if they so choose, in order to allow time to send images back via each swaps returns...
Jeanette hosted the very first mistery swap (numero uno and sent to us partecipants
(I believe there are about 25 of us in total), wonderful images of a cute bear roasting marshmallows over an open fire.....(deets will follow).

This is a 3+1 swap and each partecipant will receive 3 cards back...the +1 is for the hostess :o)
I can't wait to see what everyone created with the same image! Meanwhile,this is my lil contribution to the first mistery swap...I rather like how it turned out, and  hopefully the recipients and the hostess like it too :o) It was sooooo much fun creating cards using this cute bear images and sentiments!
