491  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap - January 2013 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: February 08, 2013 03:26:58 PM

Here is my "moss' themed card from  Oath Keeper. For some reason, this card totally mesmerizes me!  I love it.  It might be its obscurity... It is a little moss covered shrine floating away in the water.  I just love it!!
Thank you so much, Oath Keeper. You must tell me if you had some inspiration for this subject matter...  I just made my first ever moss aquarium. The wee bits of moss call to me on the card...

well, here's a gorgeous piece of artwork that SunnyDawn made for me, on my doorways theme...
French doors opening onto an ocean view... Wanna be there!!

All elements are wonderful, but the ironwork really makes it special.
Thank you SunnyDawn!!

Well, one of my recipients has gone MIA, so here is what I sent her. She had a mystical creatures theme...  This is a Water Leaper, from Wales.

Here is the info I found on a certain creatures website...
Llamhigyn Y Dwr, commonly referred to as a water leaper, is a Welsh monster of ponds, swamps and lakes. It is said to have the limbless body of a frog, a long lizard tail and wings resembling those of a bat. Its nickname comes from the way it uses its wings to leap out the water and glide forth. The Water Leaper is carnivorous, making it a pest among fisherman communities. It reeks havoc by snapping fishing lines, eating livestock and sometimes attacking humans.

Well, it wasn't too swift of me to not take 'before' pics, but I did not originally have the intention of posting this....
I inherited a cat bank, bright purple with jazzy painting all over it. Not to my taste. I just started volunteering for my local animal shelter, who, of course always needs money. I figured the bank just showed up in my life for a reason! I thought if I made it cute enuf, more folks would put in their quarters and dimes. I hung info on our rescue group around the kitty's neck. The whiskers are real!!  I have been doing cat rescue for 20 years and now have a collection of over 1000 whiskers which I would find in the sofa, on my bed, and on the floor....

Swapped cards with Kitty Herman. Have not seen a post, so thought I'd show what I did...

A 4x6 based on her theme Hello Kitty as...

And 5 ATCs...

on her gnome theme, a wee house whose door opens...

(annoying habits theme)

giraffe theme

Dr Who theme.  My hubby took some time to understand this one...

I guess I failed to take a pic of the last one, a vertical letter B for her daughter.

Oath Keeper made this adorable card for me on fave childhood stuffies.  Named Tear-Tear, accompanied by Blankie. They were inseperable.
Thanks so much, OK.  This is one of my fave subject matters....

KittyHerman and I did a personal swap and I mistakenly took one of her ATCs for part of it.  It was really for this swap, on my Things that happened in 1963 theme....
The Beatles!!

I adore all these expressions.  I can just hear the screaming now... I swear one of 'em is about to faint.
thank you, KittyHerman.  Great job!!

Next for my funny snowman theme, one doing a headstand, by Homerof2...

Now there's a cool idea!!
What did one snowman say to the other?
I smell carrots.

Thanks, Homerof2 for a cool ATC. I NEED to know what that snow is made out of.... it resembles clay.

Last, my herb card from grapeicepop. She chose a bay leaf (which I always put in the stock pot....) and wrote all of its uses, alot of medicinal uses, for a background. Love it!  somehow I always left out the bay when considering herbs.
thanks so much, grapeicepop.

Wonderful cards. I am lucky lucky lucky

pilarfarmer chose me for a cat theme but she also saw that I like moveables so she made me 2!!  They are both so great.

I absolutely adore bright colors. I love this card!

Black cats are my alltime favorite. I have never met one I did not love. The head and tail move on this card.
thank you so much, pilarfarmer. THey are just awesome.
