    Because of all the "goings on," this all seems far in the past to me. How exciting that we will get new cards next week. My mailbox has been achingly empty! Thanks for sorting them out so promptly Goatgoddess. How is your husband doing?

    hubby went back to work this past week so he is getting there - lucky his job is mostly computer and paperwork.

    got my kids to come over today and help me move this huge bush - let me say it looks much easier when they do this on TV but with my mostly my sons help (the twins and my neice were some help but after my son threw a worm on one of them that was kinda of it for them <g> - my kids are in late 20's) But we got it moved and my future flower beds are going to look so nice!

    Trade out is tomorrow!

    Thank you - the one in the middle is a rubber stamp image off of the envie that Gatos sent in - might need to find that stamp - it's very nice.

    Whew! This swap sounded familiar. Yikes! Had to come on and see if I joined and forgot about it. Hmmm. Guess I just thought about joining and didn't. Whew! Big whew since the deadline has already come and gone.

    I received my wonderful cards today, from: terryart, ztern, Ria, Elena, Marlien, and Chatty. I did itrader for goatgoddess, and rep point for Chatty. However, the others are not on this thread, so I can't do rep points. Instead, I PM'd everyone except ztern who does not appear to be on this site at all. I used the email address on the back of her card to send a thank you and gave her the web address of our new site, in case she has lost us!

    Thank you, goatgoddess, for keeping track of everything!

    thank you - I started out with watercolor paper and cover it with red tinted water based varnish - then layered strips of paper over that - added more red varnish - added bits of gold (clean) candy wrapper) more varnish - then put the crow images and more varnish - let dry a little - came back with purple tinted varnish - then added dot's of blue, green and purple inks - dapped it about and used a wet baby wipe to pick up a bit and leave a bit till I was happy with it. then leave them to dry and try to quite messing with them then I rubberstamped some curls on the card after they had finally dried

    I find that I can't leave my fingers out of the ink and end up with pretty messy hands at the end of it all
