Wow!  Too much great art - I'm loving it!  I like the idea of an unfoldable - I'm going to have to try that.

I know my partner received, but I think she's really busy and hasn't had time to post pictures, so I thought I'd go ahead and post what I sent her.

I noticed when I was stalking her that she likes four seasons trees, so I did a spring day to night tree for the front:



The tree is made from hearts punched out of magazine pages, the background is acrylic paint.

For the back, I did Koi fish, which my partner likes, and added the Japanese names of the types in silver sharpie:



For extras, I put in an ATC of her favorite cat, Mason:



Some magnets and leaf charms and a bookmark:



She had urban rubbings and Yellowstone on her Pinterest, so I went downtown and did some rubbings from grates and manhole covers and such (that was really fun and I'm going to do some more Smiley ) and also sent her some photos from my trip to Yellowstone in June - cool coincidence that I just went there and she is interested in it!






This was a totally fun swap and I loved what everyone did - so many creative and artistic ideas.  You're all great!

Wow, what an awesome envelope and package, Helcura!  That tree must have taken ages with all those little hearts!  Super cool stuff!

wow...Helcura, I love the envelope you sent!  that background transitioning from daytime to night is great, and i couldn't tell from the pictures, but those little hearts on that tree must have taken forever to assemble!  impressive!

and rubbings!  i haven't done that in, erm, forever!  i'll have to remember to do that with my niece and nephew when i see them next!

So while I was away on vacation last week, my super fantastic envelope arrived from Scrapkatt!!!!  I love the front art, there are so many cool little images in there and many of my own personal faves (good stalking there!)  I really love that there is a piece of cheese too Grin  I'm pinning this to my bulletin board in my work room


the back is an explosion of hearts! 


and then inside there were some of my very favourite things in the world, old letters, some paper bits and music sheets! 


scrapbook paper and a neat bird in a cage cutout


and some old postcards from a car boot sale (I really like saying that Wink ) that all have messages on the back.  The card at the top was from Scrapkatt


Thank you so much for such a great envelope that was totally worth the wait!
