Back To Crafting....

When I go out and do my daily run I have all sorts of things that I think about. Lately it has been about some fun swaps I'm in on my Ohio Stampers group One was for the Egroups home page card contest, another was for our Crazy Day Calendar swap and then for a Halloween swap! Cool thing is I get a card in return! Love that kind of fun mail!

The first picture is of my Crazy Day Calendar swap. My son actually inspired this one by telling me he had wanted to go in the Navy since he was 13 years old! How's that for patriotism! The theme was to be Red, White and Blue in honor of 9-11.

Here's the awesome card I got in return;

This one is for the Egroups Homepage Contest. I saw this little owl and even though it's a Sizzix die I knew I could run it through my Cuttlebug! I did and had no problems! I just loved that background paper too! It's sort of shimmery so the trees have a little sparkle! It's from KI Memories and is called "Grateful Tree Farm". I'm really getting into the layers for cards as the owl alone has 2 layers!

Now we come to my favorite monkey! Is he not the cutest monkey ever! It's Changito! I, of course got these from Mandy at Limelight papercrafts store The pirate one is a sympathy gift I gave myself when I pulled my IT band! I was so scared I wouldn't make it for the marathon that I consoled myself in a way only a fellow papercrafter can understand! I bought new rubber! I figured hey if I'm going to limp I'll get a Changito that limps! LOL! Worked for me!

This is the Changito for Halloween! Don't be scared I think he'd rather have some candy! LOL! I made up 6 of these cards and sent them out to my swap partners and one extra for a special person who does a great job of enabling my monkey stamp habit! LOL!

Well, I hope you enjoyed these! I had fun making them all!

Until next time.....
