Revisiting Spring Projects: Day 3
2 hours ago
|The following swaps are mostly from The Altered Paper hosted by Tee. She has really neat ideas for swaps...always something new to try out!|
I received this ATC from Victoria at Things I Learned From Bear. The theme for this swap was flowers for every occasion.
|Victoria was so generous and added extra goodies with my ATC, which I can't wait to play with!|
|Another fun swap that I participated in for the very first time was to altered 3 stick pins in a winter theme. My swap partner is Fran at The Bagg Lady. Her blog is all about primitive art work, and can't wait to see her creation.|
|We were to create a holder to house our stick pins in...our choice. I came up with this idea after seeing it in on Ceekay's at Thinkin' of Home.|
|This beautiful ATC card is from Melanie at Rabbit Hole Art, and she was my partner.|
Now this last swap was hosted by Wendy at Blissfull ATC Swap, and the theme was the world of Jane Austen.
|And this was my Jane Austen ATC to Melanie.|
So far now, I will take a little break until the end of the month and do some stamping!!!
|Isn't it beautiful! I love the tree and snow!|
|This is the tag I made for her. This picture shows you the tag without the pom poms. It was a last minute decision. To see the finished product, you have to visit AmyJo's blog.|
|The second swap I signed up is for a Vintage ATC: Flowers for Every Occasion. I have never ever made an ATC in my life. I didn't quite grasped the whole concept of an ATC, until it finally hit me. I am actually very pleased with my creation.|
|My partner is Victoria at |
Things I Learn From Bear. Bear is her doggie. Isn't that the cutest!
|We are kitty lovers.|
|I love Charming Tails!|
|An Arleen ornament. Arleen is my BFF!|
|I love Nutcrackers!|
|Another kitty kat!|
Thank you friends for thinking of us!
|When I saw these huge bright Spider Mums I knew I had to have them to brighten up my day.|
|For the last 2 weeks I had been sick over my 2 week vacation, and I needed some cheering up. Even though I'm feeling much better, I kinda have the blues now...|
|Looking at them, they make me happy.|
|Thank you Liz for hosting this wonderful party!|
Please stop by Liz at Rose Vignettes, and visit other bloggers' beautiful fresh cuts!
|The stamp image is from Stampin' Up! Christmas Classics.|
|All cut up and ready to go...|
|I ended up with 14 cards. My goal for each month is to make 10-12 cards. It seems like a lot, but I give some as gift sets or thank you cards, and hopefully, I'll have enough to donate to a charity.|
|I found another neat printable, and decided to make this my monthly printable frame. |
Every evening before I go to bed and every morning when I get out of bed, I will be reminded that the beginning of 2012 doesn't end with the passing of January 1st.
|Sorry about not making my bed this morning, but couldn't wait to take a picture of my new printable.|

|I had not been at my messy crafty table for a while, and I could tell I had lost my crafty creative mojo!!! Even though I struggled to come up with something decent, I kept going on...|
|I came up with something clean and simple. I embossed the front of the card using my Northern Flurry embossing folder, and a simple snowman tag.|
|For an extra touch, I embossed the envelope flap.|
|A quick peek at the inside of the card. I am sure the receiver can use this set of cards as thank you cards, or anyways she needs them.|
Now going back to resolutions, do you usually keep them through out the year?
