This is the second year running that I've joined in with the Christmas Card Swap which Amy from Love Made My Home has organised. This time I was partnered with Melanie from Wuthering Heights Farm but as Melanie has recently decided not to carry on with her blog, I was worried that she might have decided not to take part in the swap afterall.
I received a lovely email from Melanie saying that she did still want to exhange cards and I received this lovely one all the way from Canada.
I'm afraid that I didn't think to take a photo of the card I sent but it was one I bought from a local shop with a similar message to Greetings From Garforth, which is the small town where I live.
This is a wonderful swap to take part in, it's relatively inexpensive and allows you to make new blog friends. Many thanks for organising it, Amy. I'm linking this post to Amy's Sharing Our Card Swaps post where everyone's sharing the lovely cards they've received.
Lovely picture. Card swapping sounds like a good idea. Flighty xxReplyDelete
I've really enjoyed taking part in the card swap, it's a great way to be introduced to some new blogs as well as receiving a lovely card through the post.Delete
I'm glad your partner decided to still exchange, your card is unique.ReplyDelete
I'm also from Canada and send wishes for a Merry Christmas!
I'm pleased that Melanie decided to take part in the swap. I've never had mail from Canada before. Thank you. Sending seasons greetings for a wonderful Christmas to you too.Delete
What a sweet little card. Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
It is, I love the picture. Thank you and a merry Christmas to you too.Delete
What a cute card you received from Amy's Christmas card swap. Have a wonderful Christmas.ReplyDelete
I did, and it came all the way from Canada. Thank you. Sending wishes for a merry Christmas to you too.Delete
Visiting from Amy's... Sweet card with its wise and cute owl. I am sad to know that your car swap partner won't be blogging anymore, though.ReplyDelete
I love owls so this card was perfect for me. It's sad to hear when blogs fold, there seems to be a lot of it happening just lately.Delete
What a beautiful card and lots of fun to participate, Merry Christmas.ReplyDelete
It is a beautiful card. I've had lots of fun with various swaps this year. Thank you and sending wishes for a merry Christmas to you too.Delete
I enjoyed the swap too, must remember to link back up with Amy also. Your Canadian card is lovely xReplyDelete
It's a great swap to take part in. I love the card and the fact that it came all the way from Canada makes it extra special.Delete
I agree xDelete
Oh, beautiful, but then you know I have a soft spot for owls. Glad she still took part with you. Take care.ReplyDelete
I love owls too. I'm so pleased that Melanie still took part in the swap even though she's no longer blogging.Delete
I am so glad that you enjoyed the card exchange! Thank you for joining in. Happy Christmas! xxReplyDelete
It's a wonderful swap, thank you for organising it. Thank you, sending happy Christmas wishes your way too.Delete
What a charming card, and all the way from Canada. I think this is such a great idea. When I was a kid, I had a pen pal all the way in England and I had so much fun writing to her and learning about her culture.ReplyDelete
I had penpals when I was a child too, one was from the US and I had another in Sweden. I always love receiving mail from other countries.Delete
What a pretty owl, something quite different.ReplyDelete
It is different, I love owls so this card was perfect for me.Delete
It's a great card, Jo. :o)ReplyDelete
I don't have any other Christmas cards with an owl on so it's certainly different.Delete
I too have so enjoyed Amy's card swap, a great introduction to so many lovely new blog for me.ReplyDelete
Thats a beauty of a Christmas card, quite mesmerising.

Lovely card indeed. I think the card swap was a fun way to start the holiday season. Have a Merry Christmas, PatReplyDelete
It is a great way to start the holiday season, it's such a lovely swap to take part it, sending goodwill messages to other bloggers.Delete
That's a lovely idea for a swap, and like you say relatively inexpensive!ReplyDelete
I think this swap really is in keeping with the Christmas spirit, sending good wishes to people near and far.Delete
That's a cute one.ReplyDelete
Happy Christmas! :)
