I am super excited to announce my first ever blog swap, an
 
Altered Cabinet Card 
&
Pocket
Partner Swap
 
 
Alter a Cabinet Card and create a pocket/envelope for your partner.  The pocket can be made out of anything (fabric/paper) and be any size/shape as long as the Altered Card fits inside of it.  Then Join me and the other participants for a blog hop featuring our creations on October 25th.  Don't have a blog, flicker is fine.

The Cabinet card was the style of photograph which was universally adopted for photographic portraiture in 1870. It consisted of a thin photograph that was generally mounted on cards measuring 4¼ by 6½ inches. (For this swap larger is fine but nothing smaller)
