I have received a funny-punny card from blupaisan, on my "Word Play" theme:



So cute!  So well executed!  So groan-worthy! Cheesy

And she even included an amusing extra:



Thanks so much!  They're awesome!

Here are the last three cards I received for the November swap.  First, there's a fabulous "Victoriana" re-send from corduroy cat.  Fortunately, this one did not exit its envelope en route:

Cool, right?  And the title:  "Agnus loved making ice sculptures."

Next is a great groaner from loves2experiment, who chose my "puns" theme:

It's titled "Silly Condiments," because:

Awesome!

The last person to claim me was by sewwhut, who made "Hey, Red!" for my "fairy tales" theme:

I love that she's just tripping obliviously along in the foreground while the wolf's got the classic villain-behind-a-tree thing going on.  Fun card!

Thanks, ladies!!!  Grin

I have received "A Baby Mouse!" -- an abso-bally-lutely adorable angel ATC from Noooitaremybirthday:



Too cute for words -- thanks, Nooo! Cheesy

As it turns out, I did not need an angel card after all.  However, I really love this little guy...I'll have to stalk Nooo's theme lists and make her a nice thank-you ATC!

I've received from Singalala!

First, she sent a 2nd maze card, as she wasn't happy with the first one she'd made.  Sadly, the two words came off of the card, and I don't know where they were glued.  Maybe like this:



Or maybe like this:



I have to say, I think that card is the prettiest possibly way of saying, "Get lost."

She also sent "Small Keys" (for my skeleton keys theme):



Neat, huh?  The pattern on the background is raised.  It's textured paper, like these similar pieces she enclosed:



They're very cool -- I think they might be wallpaper samples?

Thanks, Singalala, for a lovely surprise!  I hope you find your way back to us soon!

Prettyinpaisley chose my masks/Mardi Gras theme, but it was her BF who made the card for me.  Someone suggested earlier...or possibly in the previous swap...that we refer to him as "handsomeinpaisley," but I'm a sucker for alliteration, so I'm going to say I received an ATC from handsomeinhoundstooth.  And here it is:



If you fold the card as directed, you get this:



Neat, huh?  The color scheme and shapes make me think of kabuki masks.

If you arch the card, such that the top corners meet and the bottom corners meet, it's 3D and much, um, maskier.  Sadly, I don't have nearly enough fingers to hold it in place that way and photograph it at the same time.  (The idea is that the corners can be glued that way...but I like to keep my options open. Wink)

Thanks P.I.P. & H.I.H., for such a spiffy interactive card!

Here is "Hey Mister," a second Mardi-Gras-themed card received from alwaysinmyroom:



Very festive, with neat variation in texture and finish.  I think the bronze background and muted pastels give the card a lovely vintage look.  Oh, and you can only sort of tell in the picture, but the nose of the mask is slightly raised.

Thanks, alwaysinmyroom.  While you certainly didn't have to send me a second card, I definitely do adore it! Cheesy

I've received this lovely, whimsical maze-themed card from schnerby:



The blending and fading of the watercolors is great...and I love the little stick figure dude just hanging out in the center!  Thanks, schnerby!!

Awesome gallery so far, and I'm here to make it even better with this fantabulous "surprise" card from audio-astrophysics:



She combined the "puzzles" and "runes" themes from my list.  And the card even breaks apart into individual altered puzzle pieces:



I love how how each piece has its own color, pattern, border and rune, but they coordinate perfectly well -- so simple and yet so detailed!  Thanks, audio! Cheesy

I've received "Mardi Gras Party" from alwaysinmyroom:



The artist doesn't like it, but I think it's great!  I love that the mask is a butterfly -- a symbol of metamorphosis being really apt for a masquerade.  And the streamers (in the traditional holiday purple, green and gold!) frenetically bursting from the mask do a great job in evoking the celebratory spirit of Mardi Gras.

Thanks, alwaysinmyroom! Grin

Well, I'm glad people seem to like the "Hot, Sexy Beast," despite the fact that I posted him upside down!!!

My apologies to calluna.  I've fixed the original picture, but I'll post it correctly here, too:



I had been thinking he was a giant worm (vs. Wyrm?):  the moustache a unibrow; the nostrils a pair of eyes; the flames just decorative (and, of course, symbolic of his very hotness).  Boy, do I feel sheepish. Embarrassed
