    Great cards, CQ5! I love that you shared your process working with all the different elements. Really great way to use spray to do the filter and doily, and I love all the layers. The bird one has such creative words!

    I knew some of my items were going to be a challenge for everyone, but I'm so glad that you all have done a fantastic job using what you received. It really is a testimony to how we can work as artists and create ART!

    **Mail Call!**

    Yesterday I received fabulous cards from CastleQueen5 and mrubyjean. They are really awesome in person. Thanks both for including an extra host card.

    One week to the deadline - SEPT 9th!! I'm hoping that you are finishing up the cards as they should be in the mail by Wednesday at the latest to reach me in time.

    Happy Labor Day to our US players!

    I'm PM'ing the folks who haven't posted to the thread in a while to remind them of the swap and deadline. I'm still waiting for a few sets.

    My trash to treasure cards:
    For "Special Delivery", I used the text pages in the background, then I used the shelf liner to stamp on it. I used the coffee filter, the doily, hearts, and air mail stamp.
    For "Full Moon", also used text pages in the background. I also used the striped tissue paper, coffee filter (stamped in gold with the shelf liner), the large circle, birds & flower diecuts.
    For "Create", I used text pages, doily bits, striped tissue paper in the background. I also used the die-cut circle with the word "create" on it.
    For "Woman and Her Dog", I used text pages and doily piece in the background. I sprayed dylusions ink through the shelf liner onto the text pages, but it was TOO bright, so I covered over it with gesso. I used another large circle die cut, the Nederland stamp, and the silver foil (that I cut circles out of).
    Finally, for "Don't Forget to Fly", I used the left over circles and flower die cuts for texture in the background. I also used the striped tissue paper, a die-cut heart and the shelf liner.
    This was TREMENDOUS fun! Thank you!

    Prex79. I love all the elements or trash you used in each card. I esp like the flower, but I tend to like flowers anyway. I really want to give you a shout out about the creative genius behind using the postage stamp head on the dog card. I love when artists can make those heads on stamps line up so well.

    Using the math page behind the cards is a nice touch that I didn't use, but I still have some of that left so maybe for another project.

    **Happy Mail from prex79** came yesterday - your cards are so great in person, photos just don't do them justice. Thanks for including an additional hostie card - it will be hard to choose.

    This weekend I'll be putting up a poll so you can all vote on the best use of the challenge item (shelf liner). I haven't created a poll before but hope to have it up in the next day or two.

    Everyone send healing thoughts to redwheelbarrow (Elizabeth) - she was admitted to the hospital a few days ago and had to withdraw from our swap.

    Elizabeth - hope you are on the mend, get well soon!

    ** MAil Call!**

    Happy day - whoo! Received qkenzie's and TrailRider's cards in the mail today.

    Cindylou - I know you mailed yours about 2-1/2 weeks ago from Missouri. Wondering if they've taken some scenic route to Washington. Since I'm still taking photos of ATCs with the challenge item and making the poll hopefully your envie will arrive before we close the poll and I need to mail out. Fingers crossed!

    The mail is crazy sometimes...some envelopes farther only take a few days and other closer ones take longer.

    **All Mail Received!** :)

    My husband had set some mail aside from a week ago, and Cindylou's cards did indeed arrive! I have them - such wonderful ATCs. So we have everyone!

    The poll in the other T2T swap was my first time making a poll. I learned a lot about the quirks, and I thought it worked just fine.
