Who's in the Forest Swap

ok this swap is almost done...due 8/18/11...but i couldn't wait anymore to post these...i personally LOVE the computer one...the theme of this swap was to make a card (or two) of something you like/enjoy...hobbies...food...etc....well I {HEART} SCS....i did a screen capture of my swap subscriptions page on SCS for the background...and used the free blog icon that i have here on my blog...popped it up on dimensionals and added red stickles to the heart...inside i stamped the cat and mouse from this set (computer quips)...

i {heart} SCS
Paper: basic gray..whisper white
Ink: basic gray..printer
Stamps: computer quips
Accessories: red stickles..black sparkle tiles..dimensionals

and as most of you know...i love to read...everything...especially cookbooks...cover to cover...and i enjoy recipe card swaps...so the result was my 2nd card...a bookworm...reading a cookbook...with a recipe included...of course...lol...i used GIMP photo editing software to fill the pictures on the cookbook my little worm is reading...then after some consultation with my design team...aka my dd's...i used a brad to "hinge" the
image over the recipe...

Paper: ruby red..yoyo yellow..very vanilla
Ink: SU markers..printer
Stamps: bookworm digi
Accessories: lt green stickles..sm black brad

these were a lot of fun to design and make...the computer card was from one of those "lightbulb" moments...i had to get it written down quick...and the bookworm evolved when i was trying to think "outside the box"...or in my case "the rut"...thanks for cking these out...be safe/be well
