21  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap -- November 2016 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: December 01, 2016 08:41:00 AM
I have received three in the past coupla days.

from rockingbearranch,
odd thing to find at the end of the rainbow...

Here is Iris Apfel in all her glory! On the back is the quote from her "When you don't dress like everyone else, you don't have to think like everyone else."
I love getting cards that open my eyes to new things. I have never heard of this woman. BTW, she rocks! I have tried to draw older people and my wrinkles look horrible. rbr made this one a huge success!

from kartiana, her favorite theme (found poetry)..

Yay! Only just yesterday I added Found Poetry to my want list of cards and then this came in the mail!
I love all of the extra embellishments on this. I am so lucky to get this awesome card!!

from WideEyedLife,
odd thing to find at the end of the rainbow....

the title is Lime Burst Lenny. I cannot imagine a more appropriate name for this cupcake leprecaun dude! what an absolutely zany and wonderful idea and so beautifully rendered.

thank you so much, Craftsters! Great additions to my collection!

mandykaye delivered triplets!!!

Theme is red, white, and turquoise.
wow, did she come thru nicely.
I have to say the cat face is my favorite.
but the other kitty is so unique, and the tree is gorgeous!!
I have been obsessed since childhood about images that are stamped just a bit off, where the colors are trying to get into  line but do not quite make it. It is one of my favorite pieces of  muffed art.
the trees really remind me of that, thus, I love them dearly!!!

thank you so much!!!

curiousfae made this awesomely funny card for my theme Unlikely Greeting cards...

ahhh, you all wonder what tender sentiments will be inside this card...

Rare is the fast friend who will help you get rid of the nasty evidence!!

I laughed sooo hard when I opened this.

thanks so much, curiousfae!!

rockingbearranch sent extras along with her card.  I love the feel and style of these cards.

She chose my soddie house theme and made this....

I want so much to someday see a real (old) sod house.
See the dirt bricks?
and the grass grows on the roof!!

She made the 1800s inhabitant really pop by mounting them this way.

thanks so much, rbr!!!!

got two in the  box today!

from krafty_karasu,
mushroom house

I am so glad she chose a night scene for this. That is rare! There is a tiny tuft of smoke coming out the top of the chimney and what looks to be a tigereye bead for a doorknob.
this is adorable, complete with the quintessential red and white dotted top.
thank you so much, kk!!!

and from curiousfae,

she claims not to be embroiderknowledgable but this card blows me out of the water!  The way the daisy petals are created with just floss shows their natural dimensions incredibly. I adore adore white daisies and this card rocks hard.
thank you, curiousfae!!!!!

26  Re: Rodent Revolution 6 (Signups 10-6-2016 to 10/21/2016) SENDOUT 12/08/2016 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by blupaisan on: October 23, 2016 05:35:06 PM
Cortez, a year and a half old,

and when I got him as a baby

After a year I learned how to sex a mouse and he turned out to be a she, but I rarely think of that, and have not changed the name.

East and West, adopted last month from my local shelter where they were just hanging out in the back room with no hope for a real home. I am still getting to know them and since I did not have them as babies, they are a bit skittish. Thus the blurry shots.


and Ouest

both female, both about three months old.

so glad to add a card to this great gallery!

noooitaremybirthday chose my mushroom house theme and created this adorable artwork

Check out the face on the shroom!!  And the words are cool. Also love how there are two in the background. Just a lovely card.

It came within this handmade greeting card, also a lot of fun, made me smile.

thank you so much, nooo!  I am so glad to be getting cards in the mail again!!

29  The six-garden dinner in Vegetarian / Vegan by blupaisan on: October 01, 2016 03:02:28 PM

This is really nothing new, but it is just plain fun that I got the veggies (and eggs actually) from six different gardens in my life.

Eggs.... friend's brother's chickens, local
chives... the place I just moved to, have been here  since mid July
Tomatoes .... place I housesit frequently and the folks moan that I do not take enough of their produce home with me
Broccoli.... from the place I moved from in July, but still go back there to harvest stuff
Summer squash... from my daughter's garden, two towns away
and peppers... from a place I also housesit so often that he let me plant an entire garden there for myself! It is a wonder that anything survived over the summer when I was hardly ever there, as, he is truly NOT a gardener.

Olives and feta cheese, I must admit, is from local supermarket. Oh, well, we can't ALL be acupuncturists.....

got two from bunny1kenobi. Both are just awesome!

first is pub sign (I requested odd ones)

I love love love the shape of the card!  And the name is awesome and the image rocks. So happy to have this in my pub sign collection!

Next, for moveable, is called View from my Window, will show pretty back first...

On the front is a window complete with curtains!

Slide the inner art to one side and you go from night to day

Oh, seriously clever and wonderful!  I am thinking (hoping) that is a wee ghostie peering in at night.
thank you, bunny1, they both really rock!

They came in a totally open and mangled envie but you had sealed the inner greeting card well and it all survived!!
