I know! I can't wait to see what everyone made and what they used as inspiration from their partner's questionnaire.   Grin

I received my envelope from Gr33nT3a! And by envelope I mean package. She really spoiled me! Get ready to get jealous.

It all came in this really sweet tin. I've never seen this type of design for Jack Daniel's. Even though it wasn't Jack is was kind of funny to come home to this with my belly full of whisky. (Note to self: Eat breakfast before commuting)

The package when I opened it up. See the really cute erasers? Also a nice note from Gr33nT3a on top

A hand painted post card that reads "Wish I thought you were here!" and a GORGEOUS Mucha inspired water color. She is so talented.

More water colored illustrations. Everything except the cute fortune cookies have lines on the back. They make me think of recipe cards.

The tea bag is an awesome book mark with attention to detail on both sides. She sent me a blank card from Hawaii and a really pretty gold embossed Father Time illustration.


THANK YOU SO MUCH! I love everything.  Cheesy Grin Cheesy

I'm so glad you liked everything! I did go a little crazy with the watercolors, but once you start one you have to wait for layers to dry and if the water is already red tinged well why not make something kinda red? lol

The cactus card was inspired by your avatar and I'm not sure if you noticed, but the woman is from a self portrait I found of you in your DeviantArt gallery. I was just a little liberal with the hair. =)

Oh I get it! The quote makes so much more sense now lol I didn't realize the lady was based on the photo I took ages ago. I see it now though. How cool!

What a great way to start off the gallery! I love all of the water color postcards! They are beautiful!

Now it's my turn to show the great mail Annie220588 sent me!
The front, I love all of the crazy patterns she used, it's so bright and colorful! I think my scanner got sick in my move back home, he doesn't seem to be scanning as well as he normally does. Wow. I just described my scanner like a human. Anywayyyy,
The front


THe back


The badass zombie artwork inside, the edges have a cool scalloped feel to them they got cut off a little in the picture


Thank you Annie220588! I love it!

Wow great start!!!!
I'm glad you like it mouseatethekitty Smiley
I did the Outlines by hand and the Rest in the PC. Never did it before but I'm really pleased how it turned out. To bad that the envelope got wet. It was raining the last few days here....
I'm still waiting for mine to arrive and I'm super excited! Smiley
