    You would certainly be welcome to join, nanvan. I have full confidence in you, even if you aren't an avid Jane devotee.
    If I comment on your stuff it's a sure sign I'd love to trade!

    Nanvan, if you are a romantic, You will love Jane Austen. Perhaps start with one of the movie adaptations?
    Oh, Bunnymther! Those are fantastic! You are definitely good to be signed up. Thanks for sharing your wonderful cards.

    Love your cards, Bunnymther! I'm feeling inspired too, but still will lurk until I've attempted at least 1 card, just to be sure.

    I love all of these. It's a good thing I'm not the host, because I'm such an Austen fan, I don't think I could give any of the cards out. It would be so hard to not keep them all!

    Okay, inspired by the great art seen here I got into making my cards today ! So if they are acceptable TSMarie, will you sign me up for the swap and send me your address, please! I went with Pride and Prejudice and the texts are from a book I bought from the thriftstore just for crafting purposes as it was not in so good condition !

    I have been to the Jane Austen House in Chawton, in Hampshire. It's lovely. The tea room across the way is called Cassandra's Cup, after her sister.

    I've attached a picture I took when I first visited it in January 2000.

    Oh my, you lucky lady! I love tea as well, and would certainly visit Cassandra's Cup!

    Here are the other cards I made for this swap. I’ll be keeping the one on the right. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Jane Austen theme-what a great idea! Love everyone’s cards so far and looking forward to seeing more

    So I've just finished my own Jane cards, and am very happy with them! It's hard to go wrong with Jane!

    I absolutely use comments to help guide swapping. I should have known you'd favor that one since it is also my favorite and you and I seem to have the same taste!

    Yes, Tammy, you know I love your work! And I think we have similar sensibilities - anyway, I love all your cards and this one in particular!
