ok!  here we go!  my last card(s) from this swap!

rockingbearranch sent me two cards for my moveable theme.  first up is "Bloom".  I totally want some of these 3D dots she used for the butterflies:

next up, "Yakko's Countries Flipbook".  it has flags from several countries in it.  I chose to use Greenland as the example:

thank you so much, rockingbearranch!

I LOVE that ghost card!!!  I must learn more about this crayon lamination technique.

so I got my card on Friday (I think.  it was either then or Saturday), but it was a really bad weekend for me.  but, things were much better today, however I was asleep for most of the day so I could go to work.  and work went well, so here I am now.  Grin

this is the pretty card BigBangMomma sent to me for my black/silver/red/green theme!  she used gelly roll pens and Sharpies to create it.  I just love the sparkle gelly pens have in them.  I should get some for myself.  pfft.  as if I need more pens (who doesn't?!).

thank you so much!!!

ok, Homerof2, you are seriously scaring me right now.  we did four of the same things for this swap; we both used business letter envelopes to mail our pocket letters, we both made sure the envelopes were taped well (but you used fun tape which I don't have), we both typed our letters, and we both sent each other a similar (not the same) extra.  spooky...  Cheesy

first we have the cards themselves!

my favorites would have to be...all of them!  what makes them so special is that Homer took all of these pictures herself (well, the middle one is actually a pretty piece of ribbon!  ooo...we also used ribbon on one of the cards we made for each other)!  the pictures of the crows and ravens were taken locally, and the pictures of the pumpkins and scarecrows were taken in Nova Scotia during the fall when she and her hubby were celebrating their anniversary.  so if you couldn't tell, she decided to go with my autumn theme.  Wink  and my crow/raven theme, but really, they fit into the autumn theme too.  she also added in a bit of glitter and sparkle, which crows and ravens (and I) just happen to like.

next we have the goodies tucked into the pockets!

lots of fun things here.  there's some sparkly tape and some glitter tape, monster tags, some cute stickers (I love those emoji ones!), paper ephemera of various kinds, self-stick rhinestones (I can never have too many of these), and a great little snowflake magnetic bookmark!  you'd never know this from my list of themes, but I do love snowflakes.  that's kind of a hint at your pocket letter, Homer. Cheesy Wink  also, it was a GREAT idea to use card protectors to put things in.  I should have thought of that.  Undecided  in other words, be careful opening the envelope.  things may go flying.  lol

lastly, I just had to take a picture of the back of the envelope because of the tape used to seal it.

it's peppermint candy tape!!!  lol!!!  that is seriously cute!!!  I'm keeping the section of tape because I want to find a way to use it.  lol

thank you SO much, Homerof2.  I love everything you gave me.  now if the postal service would just hurry up and get mine to you!

I received this wonderful card called "Alice's Key" from kartiana for my key theme.

isn't it cool?  I love the piece that was actually typed on a typewriter!  did you do that, kartiana?  or did it come from a book or something?  and what looks like stars through the keyhole.  like it will unlock the door to another universe.  I love this!  thank you so much!!!

ok!  that was a pain!  I'm going to find that cable and put it somewhere where I know it will be (I took these with my iPhone and [long, boring story here]...).

first we have a black cat bookmark (so cool), a Maleficent necklace (love that SO much), and a Sven Tsum Tsum!!!  isn't he adorable?!

next, some Disney villain stickers, Marvel stickers, and what looks like Spider-Man confetti.  I may have to break my rule of not making ATCs for myself and make a Spidey one with some of those little bits Cheesy

my partner went to Disney World last month and was kind enough to bring back some park maps to help me plan my future trip!

while I really do love everything in my package, these have to be my favorites.  they're little examples of her amazing ability to paint that I get to keep forever; Hocus Pocus ATCs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and lastly, everything came in this great zippered bag.  that's Jack Sparrow on there!  love it!

thank you SO, SO much, Artmomto5.

me first!  Cheesy

I got a lovely envelope in the mail today from noooitaremybirthday.  she chose my fantasy creatures theme and made this awesome mermaid card!  I love her tail fins because they kinda remind me of seaweed or kelp.  and her hair is so pretty!  it makes it look like she really is dancing (it's titled "Sea Dancin'")!

the background is really neat because it's textured.  it's kinda hard to see in the picture, but it's there.  Cheesy  the back of the card says it was made using markers, paint, gelly roll pens, and gelatos.  I just love it.

it came in a card wrapped with a couple pieces of fabric ribbon, and it also included a few washi tape samples (I've been wanting some!!!) and creature mail stickers!!!

thank you SO much, nooo!!!  so happy to have you back in swaps!!!

in my excitement and need to share, I was trying to find the September gallery for these cards from August.  -_-  awesome.

so the first card from spikefan is pretty much a mix of two themes; favorite characters and Harry Potter.  Bellatrix is definitely one of my favorite HP characters, especially in the movie.  Helena Bonham Carter MAKES that character.

isn't she GORGEOUS?!  I absolutely LOVE HER!!!!!!!!!!

then there's this card; the card that had me screaming, jumping up and down, and nearly in tears.  it's my man, Marilyn Manson.

isn't it stunning?

I can't stop looking at these cards.  not to say that I don't love all of my cards (this round has been fantastic and I loved seeing some "new blood" in here (I didn't look to see if any unfamiliar names had been doing the ATC swaps before I came back)), but when it comes to drawings of people, I am always blown away because I just don't understand the concept of how it's done (I suck at drawing people).  oh and paintings too!!!  especially in watercolor...JUST HOW?!

this has been so much fun.  I can't wait to see what September brings for us!!!

I MADE A THING!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't been making much besides ATCs (and stuff for a swap that I can't post), so this is a big thing for me!!!  especially since it's the first one I've ever made!!!  lol

on my list I have a Teesha Moore style cover for a binder that I keep my ATCs in.  I'm one patch closer to that cover.

you can see the post I made about it here.  the edges aren't as wonky as they look in the pic, that's just where it kinda rolled or whatever.  it's wavy.  lol.  but it'll straighten out once it's attached to another patch.

29  Red Riding Hood TM patch! in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: September 04, 2016 05:28:15 PM
my first ever Teesha Moore patch!!!  and I love it!!!

I was in the August round of the ATC swap where I did a Red Riding Hood themed card.  I got the idea from an invitation I found online.  I made paper cuts for the ATC, then I made the pieces from felt and stitched this up.  and I love how it turned out!!!

isn't it cute?!  now I only need...some more patches to make a cover for my ATC binder!  Cheesy

all these watercolor cards are exactly why I bought another watercolor set today.  the one I got at Michaels is like...chalky?  it's perfect for certain projects, like the pocket letter swap I'm in, but not for making the pretty things I'm seeing here.

the gems I used are from nail art kits.  so yeah, they're tiny.  Tongue

I got a card on Saturday!!!  I was silent on this until today though because yesterday was a Skyrim binge day.  Cheesy  I think I only checked Facebook maybe twice.  and that was on my phone (this site is too hard for me to look at on my phone and I don't know my password.  lol).

for my Weird America theme, emilywilde made me a card depicting Powell's City of Books in Portland, OR.  the NW entrance has a statue known as "The Pillar of Books" that actually contains the ashes of a man who loved the store so much, he wanted to be buried there.  the ashes were previously stored on a shelf within the store.  talk about a dedication to reading!

so cool!  thank you for sharing this with me, emilywilde!!!
