Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

Here's another bunch of cards I've made for a couple of swaps that I'm loving. I need to invest in some really good quality heavy stock paper but until then I think I'm doing alright with the paper I'm using. Its a nice quality but not the heaviest and when I do watercolors on them it gets really wrinkly - I end up sticking them in a phone book overnight to work out the majority of the wrinkles. Anyway, on we go... Cheesy

Here's a bunch that I randomly made but I love them. The knitty ones were made specifically for the lovely lady I was swapping with who loves knitting. For anyone who can't read the cards they say "Really all you need to become a good knitter are yarn, needles, hands, and a slightly-below average intelligence. Of course, superior intelligence such as yours is an advantage." "The only place where housework comes before knitting is in the dictionary." "Sticks and stone may break my bones, but sticks and string excites me."

The pink unicorn is saying "Just give me a gun and an opposable thumb..." (not the happiest camper), the bottom far left is a small comic that shows a boy giving a girl a flower and then in the last square saying "Let's go to a hotel!" (kids move so fast these days), The angel and devil card declares "Come to the Dark Side (We have Cookies)", and the crazed green cat thinks "I think I just had an...evilgasm."

These are very silly and very cool [grin] And I love your watercolour painting! I wish I could paint.

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.

Hah, that makes me smile because I feel so clumsy and new at watercoloring. The most I can do at this point, as evident by my cards is make pretty splashes of color. But at least it turns out well enough  Cheesy

Thank you so much everyone. There will be more cards posted from me soon. I just can't stop  Tongue
