331  Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 18 (SU: 10/20-10/25; SO 10/29, and 3/1/14) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by blupaisan on: October 23, 2013 04:03:28 PM
Just finished making my LV,  Georgie, a cornhusk doll, poseable, ready for a ton of fun!

His eyes are apple seeds and his nose (of which he is a bit sensitive due to it's crookedness) is a corn kernal.
His hair is cornsilk.
He is excited but terrified to go on his big trip, but we are talking about it rationally and I am allowing him to express all of his feelings. I think he will be ready when the big day comes.

So glad you like the replacement, SenatorOrgana.
Here is a pic of the one that got lost.

The window in the door opens

Then the whole door opens.

It is made with bits of Sycamore that have been shedding on our lawn all summer.

Here is the Sailor's ABC card, my first of the alphabet, from MandyKaye. It rocks! I so love roping and glad she used it here. From the great start, I can't wait for more to claim me for this theme.
She also sent nautical charms which I am gonna use, and this gorgeous greeting card

I also received from ChameleonHound for my All Natural Challenge. The creator is to use natural materials only in the whole construction!

The list of ingredients is long! Grass, corn leaves, cedar, pine needles, black-eyed susans, birch bark, oregano, aspen leaf, charcoal (bonfire leftover) and cotton thread. She titled it "Passes for Grasses." It is wicked cool. It even smells great!
Plus, she made this adorable card

I really laughed when I opened this!

Thanks so much, ladies. Great job on both themes!!

vincentvanbuck made this for my fabric theme. He must have read up on my tastes a bit cuz the turquoise throughout is my absolutely favorite color. I love the combo of this whole thing.
back -

it is actually an  envelope with a stiffener inside. love it!
He made it due to the fact that he was not happy with the outcome of his original idea which is this..

As with every package I get, I tear it open and do not 'read the instructions' but just dive headfirst into the goodies. This was the first thing I saw. Tears came to my eyes and I cannot post what I said due to the fact that there may be young readers present, but to see the Scottish flag and know that someone made it just for me was, well, extremely heartening on a very bad day.
I understand why vincentvanbuck was not pleased with the outcome, as he is just now getting into sewing, but to me this card is precious. it is also an envie, with an inner stiffener.
Thank you, vincentvanbuck. well done!

here is the absolutely adorable card that Oath Keeper made for my Odd Pet names for a Loved One theme. It is definitely a super squeeee! She uses this name for a dear friend of hers.

She also made a cat themed card which I cannot stop looking at, it is so wonderful and magical.

the kitty is up in space and the ball is the sun. it is an understatement to say that I love this card!!  O K, I want to know about the white areas around the kitty... it is erased or painted on white? Very cool. I love the stars on the cat and the colors of the sun.
Thank you so much for these awesome cards!!

Here is the cat themed card made by Witchhippie. Funny, I just started reading Jane Austin for the first time ever. Are you a mind reader?
Very cute card, cool quote. The image of the cat in the hat is right on!
Thank you, Witchhippie!

Made by vincentvanbuck, for my cats theme...

It is one of those ever-popular Japanese kitty mini statues. My daughter has one. vincentvanbuck spent time in Japan, so when he thinks of kitties, this comes to mind.
Love the brilliant colors and the happy face on the kitty. Looks exactly like the statue I remember seeing in my daughter's room.
I wonder if that pose actually means anything, with the paw raised and all?
Thanks so much, vincentvanbuck! Love it so much!

Received from Beautifulsoul!
Asked for her favorite flower, it is the carnation...

I have tried drawing flowers before, and find it difficult. The petals are so specific to a certain flower and if not done just right, it looks questionable. This one is so real, I can truly tell it is a carnation. So pretty!

Then my next theme was make up your own wine label...

Humor is really kicking in at this stage of my life, so I just love this card! A play on words, plus Beautifulsoul indicated that she did plenty of whining when younger. Probably true for most of us.

Thanks so much for the cards!

Got this stunning kitty card (and turquoise, my fave color) from cmarion3.
I have commented on a similar one received by another lucky craftster and she made me not one but two like it!!  I am so lucky!

I wish my wonky camera could do them justice... The turquoise is brighter, the jewels at the neck really shine, and the thread around the edges is multicolored.
Thanks so much, cmarion3. I adore them!!

rockingbearranch went all-out for me and sent 4 cards...
first up, log cabin

Adorable! I am very partial to red doors, too. I wish this wee place could come to life so I could go in it.
Then, gardening

The grow word is embroidered. Such pretty lace at the side. The cut-out flower makes me reminisce... every spring when the seed catalogs would arrive, my daughter and I would cut out pretty flower pictures and create a mini book. I still have many of them in a box in my room.
next, an extra she made featuring books

And I save the best for last, my turquoise theme...

AAAAA! This flower is making me droool! I just love that intense color! Plus, the cowgirl wears a turquoise necklace. I love this card. There is something very 80's about her look.
thank you, rockingbearranch for all the goodies!

CDEeeek made me two great cards...
For my Vanity Plate theme

Awesum!! And such an acurate illustration complete with dings and stuff on the plate.
I had some wonderful vanity plates in VT (see my avatar...) then moved to NY where everything was already taken. But I never looked this one up... perhaps it is available!
She also chose my Weirdest Dream Ever theme and here is what she experienced one night -

She wrote that the big cat head was sort of bobbing about in the dream. Wonder what a dream analyst would have to say about that one...
Love the card! Thanks for your excellent work!
