Better Late Than Never

 On the 24th November was our First Kiwi Stampers Team Meeting.
As per normal we did swaps, we needed to make 17 swaps.
I finished mine this Friday, ( yes ladies I put them in the post on yesterday) hopefully you will recieve them on Monday or Tuesday.
I had them almost finished but my Sentiment Journey Stamp Set (Summer Mini) hadn't arrived when I left for Christchurch were the meeting was. Paul phoned to say it had arrived that afternoon, I had left in the morning but even if I had waited I would have had time to complete them.
So now the long wait is over, I hope the ladies think the wait was worth it.
This is my swap.
I cased this from Michelle Zindorf go check out her blog it is a must visit blog, she does the most beautiful brayer work and she has over 300 tutorials.
When I first saw this on Michelle's blog, I loved the plane with the flourish and I thought of Air New Zealand and the Koru on the tail of there planes.
I have made a complete card as we have friends packing up and moving over the ditch to Aussie and I thought it would be a great card to give to them as they continue on there lifes journey.
This is the inside of the card, the stamp I have used is from 'Word Play' Stamp Set.
It is a fabulous Set, I fell in love with in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue.
I thought both stamp sets would be good sets for card making and scrapbooking.
So what do you think are these great sets?
