finally!  after the detour to Wisconsin, it made it!!!

that rhino was supposed to go in a pink hoop I have.  but I misjudged the space needed for the rhino that would allow it to fit in the hoop properly, and his face was too close to the side, so the cloth kept popping up from the side.  Sad  but, I had those fun frames that I got from A.C. Moore that would fit it perfectly.  I didn't want to leave it white, so I grabbed my Mod Podge and pink tissue paper and got to hiding the white!  I loved the idea of the geometric pattern on the rhino when I found it online, but I decided to make my own.  I found a rhino sprite from a video game I love (Scribblenauts) then sectioned it off to make the pattern.  I loved it so much, I've decided to make one of my own using an animal I like.  I just haven't decided which to use yet.

E was a tough one for me, but after looking through some Harry Potter lists for something that started with an "e", inspiration struck.  I had purchased the little light bulb charms like a year ago for another project, but ended up not using them.  I knew they would be perfect for this little item since it was Harry Potter-inspired to begin with.  I added them in order based on how the hourglasses are set up at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  I'm OCD like that.  Tongue

glad you like them!

oh thank goodness!!!  it arrived!!!  now to wait impatiently for my other swap package to arrive...  Undecided

I had stopped at Jo-Ann one day when they were running a special on their scrapbook paper.  20 for $2.  it was still around Halloween, but they already had some Christmas paper out, so I grabbed a few sheets.  glad I did.  Smiley  and I left the ribbon long to allow for a choice; either as a nifty addition to the card, or it could be tied off at whatever length to hang it on a tree. 

and those holly leaves have been in my stash FOREVER.  because I've had them FOREVER.  I bought them from this craft company I miss dearly.  I wish they hadn't become what they are now (not much of a craft company) so that I could buy more stuff from them, but I'll always have my memories...until I forget them.  Cheesy

I'm glad that you like it, curiousfae.  and that it arrived safely.

I'm with kayrun.  my faves are the froggy and lake sign too.  Grin

can't wait to see more!  that is...if the packages ever get to their destinations.  Undecided  one of my sendouts for another swap doesn't seem to have shown up yet.  unless the recipient just hasn't had a chance to post.  but I'm going to try not to worry about them just yet.

USPS says my package to dinkime is in transit, but I'm doubting it will get there today as expected.  Sad  hers to me was a day late, the boots that I ordered with 2 day shipping was a day late...I was hoping it'd be there today.  I guess there's still a chance, but I'm not holding my breath.  Sad

I just tracked it too -- was thinking today, too!  It made a side trip to Wisconsin...such a direct route from SC to MO!

that didn't even register with me when I looked it up.  what's it doing way up there?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

ok.  it said it's in Missouri as of 5:08pm.  but what was it ever doing in Wisconsin?!

blu, I'm SO glad you think it's a true turquoise too.  Smiley  I would have gone with it as the main color, but I was afraid it wouldn't cover the card face the same way the red would.  and I'm glad you chose red, white, and turquoise as a color combo; ever since I lived in Arizona, that combo has reminded me of the southwest.  I love the color combos they use and this was definitely one I saw a lot.  even on the Native American items I saw.  I even created a beaded mask for a ceramic steer skull using these colors because it just felt right.

thanks, WideEyed!  lol.  it is definitely my favorite swear word.  I just don't go overboard with it and use it as every other word in a sentence.  Tongue  I had already decorated some letters this way for something else, so I thought it would be fun to do for your card.  Grin

I got my key card from blu today.  that was definitely a lot of cutting you did!  holy cow!  it kinda looks like my keyring too.  Cheesy



I love the little anchor charm.  in the card that came with it, she said it took her a while to come up with a clever name for the boat key.  I wasn't sure what that meant, so I took a look at all of the keys; she wrote what they were on the back of each one!!!  the tiny pink one says "doll house", and the blue one that has "NTIC" (ATLANTIC) on it is the boat key, and it's called "A.T.Seas"!  that is incredibly clever!!!  thank you, blu!!!

lol!!!  yeah, you may need a bit of sleep.  Wink

and winter, schminter.  this will be up all year!  it's too pretty to put away.  plus I like snowflakes, so it'll be like my Halloween crafts; they're up all year.  Grin

thanks.  it's just that I have NEVER done this before.  but I was younger, less tired, and had less on my mind then.

I am SO HORRIBLY embarrassed.  I had the box with me, I did some errands but I had to take my car in first before I could do anything else...and I forgot to stop at the post office.  Embarrassed  by the time I realized I had forgotten, it was closed.  but it will DEFINITELY be going out tomorrow.  I am so, so, SO sorry and so embarrassed.  Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed
