Here is the card I made for llisaredd's Dr Seuss quote. Don't know if it was received, but it sure was made and mailed out!  Anyone heard from this Craftster lately?

482  Wacky Hat swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by blupaisan on: April 10, 2013 07:35:10 AM

Who doesn't like a wacky hat? (If you dare to actually wear it...)
There are lots of possibilities for this... I have no idea how to knit or crochet, but I can sew and do paper mache, both of which are used in hat-making. Or take something and turn it into a hat. For an after-school project once, I had the kids make a hat out of a small paint bucket and it had an electrical outlet on the front of it. Truly wacky!

Here is the wonderful box I got from .:dollface:.
She made a stand-up scene of my own grey kitty Smokey, sunning himself by the window. Pretty sweet!
And the 'innards'...
bit of lace, two lovely roses, a button, a tiger just like the one my brother had as a kid, wonderful stamps, other bits, and a key - I don't know what it's for, but ya never know!! *

*Anyone recognize the quote?  Hee hee

Thanks, .:dollface:.  !!

Here is what I sent Opalgryphon for an angeled ATC. She likes octopi and wood block printing, so I combined the two. Not as successful as I had hoped, but was fun to do.
The 'eelgrass' is just regular grass, covered in glue and twisted up to look sea-like. I had the tiny shells in my collection, just waiting for a good excuse to be used!

Squeee! I got my box from hgddm yesterday!
I looove the adorable eraser (?) kitty that is an extra. See him looking up at you? Adorable. Did I mention he was adorable? Could never actually USE him... he now sits in a spider plant in the livingroom.
Inside goodies...

Close-up of tiny items...

Will be making some cool jewelry from these.

Loooove the gorgeous fern background with splashes of black ink at edges and cute kitties.
thanks so much, hgddm!

Received these two excellent ATCs from kartiana yesterday.
One is on vines theme... love the choice for setting! Greek text in background and Greek columns with vines climbing up.

Other one is Extreme Wind category. Kariana made this card IN extreme wind conditions - letting the wind blow the paint around, then allowing dirt to blow onto it because it reflects what has been going on in her neighborhood with dirty windstorms. Pretty unusual and clever, eh?
Thank you so much, kartiana. Nice change of pace in both cards!!

Above, the adorable package.

Here is the wonderful flag I got from cabaute. She used my favorite image - the cat- and my Thich Nhat Hanh quote. I love the colors and the flower at the collar. Check out all the kitty stitching!! Thank you so much, cabaute. Can't wait to hang it up!!

Here is a sweet kitty that michelleandbean made for my cats them. Isn't it gorgeous... I love the cheery background, too. Did you know that there are very few orange cats? It is really a guy thing.
Thanks so much michelleandbean

I have quite a few goodies to show off!!

First, from La Chapa, for my Spring is Coming theme...
One of my alltime favorite things to discover in a tree!

It is made with pastels, my fave medium to work with, so I really appreciate that. Sooo pretty and so Spring Hopeful. Thank you, La Chapa!

Next, for the same theme... from Cmarion3, "Bird Tracks."

She says the flower is 'pounded', something I have never heard of before and will have to try. I love pounding!  It would feel weird,tho, to pound such a tender and pretty thing. I love the muti-media in this. Thank you, Cmarion3!
I have such a funny bird story that I witnessed this morning. I happened to look out the window just in time to see one of our 'regular' wood ducks, back for nesting, trying to go into its hole in the tree from last year, only to find it had been taken over by wintering squirrels!  It flew off in confusion and despair, poor thing, but it sure made me laugh!

Third card, from michelleandbean, on my Vines theme.. A real stunner!!

Oh how I adore the colors here... looks like magic marker. These bright tones make my heart light. Thanks so much, michelleandbean, it's awesome.

Finally, on my Bird on a Wire theme, it is titled Nonconformist and done by Helcura, with cut-out papers. So funny and pretty.

Is there so much red on this bird cuz all the blood is rushing to her head?  Ha ha.
Thank you, Helcura. Nice touch!!
