I think the post office looks at it and goes "Hm, I don't see an insurance sticker, I'll put these on the bottom of the letter bag and sit on it" lol

"I'll sit on it...while wearing butt cleats."

and my eyeglasses card from gull, it's an altered playing card, which amazingly, is the first i've ever received!!! it has great texture this card, i suspect the layer she drew on is a rice paper of some sort?  either way, love!

I'm glad that it reached you, and that you like it!

It's mulberry paper, I believe.  And since I couldn't find my fancy-schmancy art pens, I used a black ballpoint...which meant tracing over and over each pair of eyeglasses to get the ink nice and dark and even on the soft, lumpy surface.  Still, the textured look is worth it.

Not sure mine qualifies as an altered playing card, since I only used the card for sturdiness, rather than as part of the design.

from blupaisan, an amazing altered playing card! The details on this card are incredible!

Yeah, the Borg card, though...now this is an utterly brilliant altered playing card!

I LOVE how a pair of glasses are in the word look!

Thanks!  You know, I wasn't planning on doing that.  But then I looked at the bubble letters, and saw that those O's just had to be lenses!

First off, from gossamer_gull -- typewriter/writing ATCs! I LOVE these so much!  And she sent two instead of just one.  I was seriously spoiled. Cheesy

Glad you like the typewriting cards!  I don't consider it spoiling, though.  It's more of a consolation prize for my having sent a bit late.  Wink

From kartiana, a nice hot cup of coffee!  Made with real coffee -- it looks great and smells even better! Grin

Oh, and apparently Kartiana's discovered a new way to enjoy ATCs:  Scratch-n-Sniff!

Glad the bookmark arrived (at long last!), Ramona Q.  I was afraid it might have gotten lost in the mail.

I have received this awesome card, "The Joker" (on my jokers/jesters theme) from Krafty Karasu:



There's the added bonus of it being an altered playing card.  I really like that she used a joker card without an actual jester image on it and added one herself!  Thanks, Krafty Karasu -- this is a really fun ATC! Grin

I have received my fourth and final bookmark, this delicately crocheted creation by Waterbaby:



Isn't it lovely?  She thought the color and design would appeal to me due to my liking the Victorian aesthetic -- and she was right!  Thanks, Waterbaby -- I love this!

And thanks to all my partners and everyone else in this swap for making and sharing such beautiful, inspirational items!  (Now I only hope the rest of my creations are received...)

gossamer_gull! What beautiful bookmarks!

I know!  Lucky, lucky me! Grin

WHO WILL SAVE IRIS?!?!??!?!

I *adore* that!  SO. Cool.

Smiley

Yeah, it's really kitschy-campy in the greatest possible way!

I have received three amazing bookmarks!  I've been lax in posting pictures of the first two, which I received a couple days ago.  First is a wonderfully vintage-y decoupaged bookmark by Camelama:



She ran with my "cats" and "red & gold" themes.  (The coloring in the picture is a bit off, but the trim, as well as the entire back side, is a lovely pale gold.)  It's sturdy without being clunky, and it's absolutely beautiful.  Thank you, Camelama -- I love it!



On the same day, I received this fantastic felt bookmark from Stellou:



She incorporated one of my favorite motifs (Celtic knotwork) and color combos (red & black) into a masterpiece of embroidery and crochet!  (Again, the colors are a bit off here; the red is really much richer.)  I'm really impressed with how pretty, precise and professional it is.  Thank you, Stellou!



Then, today, I received a double-sided card from Ramona Q, who drew inspiration from a couple of reading subjects/genres I listed.  One of these was circus history, for which she created this collage of old ad images:



The other was graphic novels, which led her to this bit of brilliance:



As explained in her note:  "The paper...from a 1930's book on gardening...reminde d me of...a comic book...So I went with that idea and made Iris into a human and the Iris borer into an evil villain."  What an awesome, creative idea! Thank you, Ramona Q -- it's great!

Yes, Camelama, that's the perfect book for a Greek-key bookmark (regardless of whether you can read the original Greek!).

Oh, and I think they may actually be glass beads, rather than stone.  Either way, I'm glad you like it!  Smiley
