Here's the one I sent to Little Green Dragonfly.
Back is a tape transfer(one AM had sent a long time ago) with some glossy swirls of purple & green paint.

The front is another one of my sketch jobs.....its a dark(purple & black)bird....with an eye in his mouth  Shocked ....and I attached one of those awesome "skeleton leaves" from my stash.

They aren't very good pictures...but I had the scanner buried when I made them....didn't dig it out 'til I received.Guess its a teaser until
LGD gets hers online.

This has been a great swap!! Thanks Phizzy!!

I know have my Flickr account (but still haven't gotten the pictures to pop up here  Cheesy!). Here is the tag I sent to Shooting Star:

And the tag I sent to Banga:

Can't wait to see more~

Seeing how we are all kinda stuck with Flickr......I kinda figured out how to make the pictures "pop" up here.......
after you upload them to Flickr....
Click on the picture you want to put here....
Look right above it at the menu bar where you see "add note"button
Go to the 5th button from the left "ALL SIZES"
Now you are in a new window just with that picture
It says, "AVAILABLE SIZES" right above it
(pick one that looks ok....small, 235x240 in my case)
Once you select the size, it changes in your window....
Go right under the picture....
It gives you 2 options to copy & paste
#1 is the HTML code(for someone smarter than me to use Tongue)

#2 is the url of your pic to insert it......
just copy it.....and paste it here with the add image button and

And we are kinda back to normal.....yeeeeah!

Except for I am too lazy to go back and edit all my old links and turn them in to pictures.......but uummm   Cool y'all still luv me anyways huh?
