2nd Annual Women Swap

yeah you read that title and thought...WHAT?...swapping women? this some reality tv show?...

actually it's this swap..2nd annual Pretty Women, Ugly Women, Funny Women Card Swap over on SCS...

surprise!  i only took 1 spot..just to see what it was like to do only 1 set...kind of strange and yet

Hippie Woman
Paper: lucky limeade..whisper white..yo-yo yellow..melon mambo..peace signs DP
Ink: jet black..SU markers
Stamps: Words by Wanda
Accessories: paper flowers with gem centers

i hadn't used this set yet...and thought it would be fun/funny for this swap...i tried to make her shirt look sort of tie-dyed...sorry the pic isn't the best...still learning this new camera...and as i stated before i broke the tripod...

again thanks for safe/be well...and remember laugh lines are the best kind of wrinkles...

Pink & Teal Card Swap

FINALLY!!!...i have some time to post...big sigh...been so busy i'm not sure if i was coming or going...going crazy i guess...some days i didn't know the day of the week or the date...i think i lost track of an entire month...i know we have all been there right?

well on to the cards...this swap: Pink & Teal over on SCS was one i really connected with...the color combo represents the ribbon colors for breast (pink) and ovarian/gynecological (teal) cancers...which are cancers that have effected those nearest and dearest to me...

the first card is done with a favorite retired SU set...tickled out-laws live in Florida and send us all kinds of flamingo fun..and the sentiment inside was just right..

Tickled Pink
Paper: Early Espresso..Taken with Teal..Whisper White..DP
Ink: Jet Black..SU markers..pretty in pink
Stamps: Tickled Pink


for the next card i used a digi stamp..ribbon bear...used GIMP (a pic editing program) to color in the ribbon and to "piece" the DP onto the bear...if you look close you can see it matches the DP behind the image..

Ribbon Bear
Paper: Pretty in Pink..Whisper White..DP
Ink: Printer
Stamp: Ribbon Bear Digi

My oldest daughter..Jonni.. also joined this swap...she used the ribbon bunny digi stamp...she is new to coloring with SU give her some leeway..i think her addition of a teal gem bellybutton was cute and fun..
