1boy1girl1kitty2 recieved my card (fantasy creature) a bit ago.  So I thought I would post what I sent her.  It was fun to do and the teeth and horns glow.

It's much more metalic and reflective in real life.

I got 2 envelopes with 3 cards in them today.  First the They Might Be Giants ATC from curiosefae...

I love it.  The colors pop so nicely..I think it would make a cool t-shirt Grin.  Thanks so much CF.

The next 2 are from AmandaBL.  One for the Time Bandits theme, and one is an extra..

It's the map from the movie.  The blackend corners are nice and sparkly.  It's so cool and moody and hard to photograph heheh

And this is the extra card A Dalmationfly!  I love it!  Now I want a whole herd of flydogs LOL.  Thanks a bunch ABL Grin

The next card I made for honeybeee.  She said she got it, but seems to have gotten busy, and since I'm posting pics anyway, I thought I'd post what I sent her.

It's for her scatterbrained card....It was the first thing I thought of, and I could not get it out of my head....I hope it's not too gross....

Howdy everyone!  Been stalking you guys for some time now (it's funny how that doesn't sound creepy here.  You say that in someplaces and chaos ensues) and your Valentines Swap even inspired me to make something to enter in the challenge.  Here's the link to that story...


I'm just tickled with her Grin.  ANd I'm hoping there are enough folks with Barbie sized bodies for us to play too.  This next link is about a dress I made her.


And here are some pics of her trying to hug her fish....I don't think she will try that again Grin

She does have some limitations.  Her feet are huge (when your descended from Yeti, you just have to live with some things...) And her "hair" is a hood, which can't be removed, it's sewn around the neck.   I have to pop her head of to change her clothes..which is no big deal.  But I'm not sure how a hat would work..hhmmm.  If I could figure out some kind of hat to hide her baldness..I might be able to keep the hood down..interesting...Sorry, just had an idea heheh.  I'm still trying to figure out what I think about her elbows....lots of arm warmers is what I'm thinking hehehe

And, if it works out that we can play, I'm up for any kind of swap.  Favo colour sounds good

I was the lucky recipient of one of WideEyedLife's portraits.  And let me tell you, they are even more amazing in real life then photos.  I could not get a pic of just how cool this is.

You're amazing WideEyedLife!!  Thanks so much Grin

I got a wicked ATC for my crypto topic today from MunLtStmpr, AND a cool extra card too Grin

If you didn't believe before you should now. Because Bigfoot says that Nessie (or is it Canada's Ogopogo?) says that the aliens told her that they are all REAL!!  SO see?? Finally PROOF Grin And you can see that Bigfoot has a belly button, so they are clearly mammals.

And here is my sparkly extra card. The leaf is burnt into shape. And the back ground is these tiny tiny pearls...it looks like they are glued on to the card some how...How did you do that MunLtSmpr?  ANd thanks so much for the cool cards Grin

Firstly...elephant poop paper....

It's fun to work with as there are different finishes on each side. One is rougher and flattish, but has some natural imperfections. The other side was the platform the paper dried on, so it has a regular bumpy textrue to it. IT also tears really well. IT is kind of hard to tear, but it is easy to control, and leaves a pretty feathery edge.

Now on to the 3 envelopes I got today in the mail. Firstly,

this sweet little card is of blupaisen's kangaroo stuffie.  AND I got the super uber cool extra of a copy of a photo of her, the kangaroo, and her brother.  I am so going to make something arty with that!


This ever so charming Angler Fish, or "Lophius Piscatorius", is from dragonflyducky. IN general, I think it is nearly impossible to call an angler fish "Cute", but this one manages to be cute and slimy looking all at the same time. His little lure glows in the dark too!

and the third one..

This adorable card was part of a side swap with jessiben's 4 year old daughter.  I had seen her work on the kids ATC swap originally. She had drawn Raven, there wee black poodle. And I so wanted one for my collection.  I will eventually get all my poodle ATC's up on my poodle wall. Thanks so much Juliet!  I love it.

Thanks again y'all for the wonderful cards

YEAH! I got my package today!!  ANd it was from...*drum roll*...icebyrd67!  I was the lucky recipient of the book purse, and it is all so perfect!

It's a purse made from a book about Charles Dickens, and he is my favo clasical author!
She put a bunch of extras in too...

She sent me some note cards, made of the pages, and some left overs from her sisters wedding.  The are a perfect size for the Art Cards I've been makeing recently.  She was bothered by the smell of the glue, so she included a chunk of her first batch of soap ever!  I feel so lucky!  It just happens to be one of my favo smells, Lemongrass.  I love lemon secent the most I think, and the bar I got from my sister that I use in the kitchen is almost gone, so it is perfect!

Thank you icebryrd67!   I love it Grin
And thanks for the fun swap The SapphireMoon!

249  Zoey's new dress in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by suereal on: February 13, 2011 04:21:55 PM
Over the last few months, I have become interested in Blythe and other large eyed dolls.  But I wanted an anthropomorphic version.  SO when the Super Ugly to Super Awesome challenge came up, it seemed like a good time to dive in and see what I could make. What I made was Zoey.  Her story is here.


Here she is in the new dress I sewed up for her.  I wanted to try out some of the patterns that are featured over at pucicollective.  This tiny dress was surprisingly easy to make.  And Zoey loves the orange part.  She says it makes her giggle.  She wanted to know about other orange things, so I introduced her to my gold fish...

I think she likes him..
In this next photo, I think I can see what she is planning....but I missed it at the time

"OH NO ZOEY! Put Mr. Spock back in the water bowl quickly!!"

We got Mr. Spock back into the bowl with out any damage it seems.  ZOey was very sorry for scarring him like that.  She said she just wanted to give him a hug...To be honest, we were in the kitchen and one of her favo foods is tuna fish sandwiches.  I was a bit worried she thought Mr. Spock would be tasty!

OO and the little studs on the dress are happy face beads.

Amazing gallery all ready!  The toilet paper fact takes on new dimension with MunLtStmpr's confession of her use in the craft room...does that mean she has to use less for the normal usage??  And what a cute monster fest!  We should have a monster theme month LOL

OK so I received my first card today (Let the on slot BEGINE!!!)and I'm ..it's..just....so AMAZING!  It really is perfect for me. It's from sabrinalouisemiller, and I was just thinking WOW there is some amazing portraiture going on in this gallery so far and then I get this amazing card...get ready..*deep breath*..here we go

She is for the obscure gods/goddesses, saints topic.  I opened the envelope to a carefull typed note about my mesmerizing card.  This is The Morrigan.  She is called this, but she is a trio of personalities.  The first is named Macha, and she uses the blood of dead soldiers for her magic.  The second is Badb the women giant who would wash clothing in the river-if you saw her washing clothes then you were faited to die in battle.  Neman, my card, is a shapeshifter.  Neman grieves for the dead, and she is where the practice of keening comes from.  Keening is the Celtic word for the at of vocalizing ones grief for the dead.  (Keening is used in many cultures as part of the grieving process...cultures far more enduring then ours..)The 3 combined are associated with carrion birds. So sabrinalouisemiller has her keening with a murder of crows.  I can understand how her friend felt it ominous, but for me it is about cleansing the grief. 

Thanks so much sabrinalouisemiller.  It is an excelent choice for me on so many levels Grin
