Welcome CynthiaSillitoe (great to see you again!), Maineatc, Threshold 90, Barbara F and debs 913. Gerry - hope you join in!
Please post your cards in this theme (scroll down to "attach files - manage attachments") - it's fun to see what we're coming up with, and they don't necessarily have to be the cards you actually end up sending in for the swap, just as examples of the theme.

Ok, I had so much fun with this that I made a few extra, which will be in my gallery. The whole series spins off the fact that one of my first phrases was "my doll." Needless to say, I had many, not to mention wonderful doll blankets, clothes, dishes...and, yes, I still have many of them. :)

When I first got in this swap, I thought about drawing some chess pieces. When I went to find my chess board, my son was watching toy story 3, and I thought that would be a perfect idea ... since I love Disney! :)

So I chose to draw Jessie, Woody, and Bullseye, since I am a Texan! Hope you all like them!

ScrapPea
04-27-2011, 11:53 PM
Hi! My cards are done; please PM me your address.

These were so much fun that I made extras. Heck, I'll be making extras for some time to come! Thanks, Juanita!

@dsign49 - Cool game boards. I actually had (have?) a mousepad with the ouiji board design on it.

@maggiebloom - I love your darts card! My dad used to play darts, all except the beer. He won a few awards darting, too.

Cobalt Blue

Big toe, I love your cards! The Mahjong one is really cool :)
Working on mine now. Uh...I was a bit of a boring kid, just warning you...

HolleyRae

Is it too late to join? I'd love to make cards for this theme! I can send them out before the end of the week to ensure enough travel time. :)

There's still time, HolleyRae - welcome!

Cobalt Blue
05-04-2011, 01:03 PM
I'm going to have to withdraw, I'm afraid. I was trying a new technique using varnish on my cards, but I must have used the wrong stuff because all the paint has run and smeared on them :(

Maybe next time will be better. You guys have fun though!

kentuckydakota
05-04-2011, 01:33 PM
Oh Horrors! What a bummer!

The one art medium that really irks me is the various sealers and varnishes. I have used many different kinds, and so many of them aren't what they are supposed to be. I've also ruined a lot of stuff. My sympathies!!

Boy if anyone could ever figure out which spray to use for which project I'd Love to know. And gel sealers leave streaks and get too thick.

OO, someone get her started on UTEE. I have no idea what that is and now I'm struck with the curious bug!

Jennie
05-07-2011, 12:36 PM
I looked it up Kentucky it stands for Ultra thick embosing enamel. Now someone tell me what you do with it.

Jennie
05-07-2011, 12:40 PM
OOO I found this about it too- http://www.scrapjazz.com/topics/Techniques/Embossing/967.php Sounds fun, interesting and messy all at once.

kentuckydakota
05-07-2011, 12:50 PM
Sounds a bit dangerous. Anytime something warns me not to burn myself I'm in trouble especially given the holding it over heat without tipping it.

HolleyRae
05-07-2011, 11:03 PM
Goodness, I'm cutting it close! I just finished my cards. I'll send them out on Monday :) Great swap idea!

kentuckydakota

Terrific cards! I laughed out loud at that Monopoly one. What a hoot!

HolleyRae
05-07-2011, 11:37 PM
Game night always seems to end in a flurry of sarcasm and practical jokes... oi! Come to think of it, I don't we have seen a game all the way threw to the end in a good long while...
