Got this hillarious Spoonerisms card from Rosie1981 featuring Runny Babbit!



Words are "Runny got the Pickon Chox and had to bay in sted with sped rots on his belly and sped rots on his head. His friends all gave him sickon choup, bumgalls, and bicorice lends."

AND, she made me a sequel...



Really made me laugh! I was lucky enough to pull out the cards from the mailing envelope in the correct order. Such a great use of Spoonerisms!! Thanks so much, Rosie1981.

ChameleonHound made this wonderful card for me on my Vanity Plates theme. I will always consider myself a Vermonter, tho my plate is currently NY...
If ever I needed a plate, this one is it! I have only just begun the journey, mentally, emotionally, physically, but I believe that if one declares this at the beginning, it is only a matter of time before the outcome catches up with the statement.
thanks so much, Robin. It is top, top, top of my collection.

Anana got a good check-up at the medical center recently. He thought the bp cuff was like a nest. hard to get him out, he was so cuddly with it!

onyxnox sent me not one, but three lovely pieces...

the ATC is from a 1940s magazine christmas cover. Right up my alley, this vintage! I am going to hunt around the local thrift shops for a vintage-looking yarn or somesuch to add to it for hanging.
Up close...

the home itsself is lovely, but I am even more fascinated by the trees out back.

Larger tags, ready to hang...

these are on my vintage ornament theme. so much detail. They are able to glow against a tree light, as the ornament images themselves are not of the heavy paper around them.
Also incredible for this see-thru technique...

A glowing moon!!  Just stunning!!  Even in the daylight and off a tree, it is mesmerizing! And the subtle colors and much 3d effect on this one is just wonderful.
I am wondering if the accompanying card...

is also by her pen or a pre-printed thing with her color added.   ?  anyway, it's cute and retro!

Onyxnox, let me know if anything is missing... the envie arrived completely slittted at the end, with the stuff litterally spilling out. According to your list, it seems like it is all here. don't know if they were looking for controlled substances at the CA/US border (um, like, mica powder? (-;) or a terrorist threat (Canadians are gonna hold all US embroidery hostage!!)

thanks so much for great work and paying great attention to what I like.

Yay, mine has arrived from cmarion3!! here it is all wrapped up

Cats in winter and winter farm scene themes are combined here.

Closeup of kitty...

Hidden words and lots of texture on this one. I wish I could remember the name of the board she used as a backing. It is the same board used in pegboards, for hanging tools and such on those little hooks. Seeing it again takes me back to when I was a kid.  It is nice and heavy so cats cannot pull it off the tree easily.
Thank you, cmarion3! It is awesome!

cmarion3 chose my theme The Urn you Want Your Ashes in...
she said she struggled with this for awhile, but the outcome is wonderful! And very very clever. the ashes are in a 'timeless' hourglass! How cool is that??!!  If I ever choose the ashes route for myself, I would surely do this.
I love the word beside it - very fitting- and I love the twigs that frame the hourglass. Natural bits on a card always perk me up.
thanks, cmarion3. I truly love it.


Also included in the envie was this extra... a wonderful inchie house that is just my style and a blank one for me to play with! Yay, I am totally addicted to these houses now... such a great extra!!

I received a most intriguing card from rockingbearranch on my theme The Urn You Want  Your Ashes in .

I MUST know more about this, rockingbearranch!
She wrote "Negative space, line, color, etc. are significant to the meaning of this piece."
The bit coming out of the bottom of the tree looks rainbowish.
The ubiquitous turkey feather came with it. My kitten is veeeeery interested!
Thanks rockingbearranch. Can't wait for more info on it if  you are willing.

Next, from CDEeeek, on my Fave Carpenter's  Song


It is "Superstar". I love it!! the wee heart on a chain is so touching. I love how the lyrics are on a postcard. And the return to sender info is so appropriate!
Thanks CDEeeek. It is an awesome piece!

This is our dear dear Postmaster, Ed. He has mailed hundreds of my Craftster envies and packages. He was kind enough to welcome Anana to the post office!
