    IstinKray, do you have the ability to post your cards? If so, I encourage you do to that, and I we can get a feel on who would be okay with receiving one of them.
    I'll be sure to post them as I make them, that's a good idea. Thanks!

    Here's one I am working on. Not quite done, so far it's watercolor on dictionary page, charcoal, lace and printed words. What are your thoughts on using this "bad" word?

    I actually...LOVE IT! I really do! I love how you melded the dictionary word in the background and used it in a quote and I love the composition of the card. It's simple with just the words, quote and Madonna's face, but the little added elements of the lace and the 'shadows' of the quote adds a nice little touch.

    I think your cards is a masterpiece. Great use of the word, and all the elements. AND I don't even like Madonna, I have never have. I am from Michigan, and I never dressed like Madonna in the 80s, but I did dress like Olivia Newton John, (not from Michigan, but from the 80s)

    So I am saying from someone who is not a Madonna fan at all that your cards is SUPER and great example!!!

    oh and that isn't a too bad of word. I got a coffee one on it and thought it was funny. It said I am a B... before coffee and after.

    Okay then! I'm going to continue with a similar format for my others... they might not all be "bad" words, but now I feel like I'm challenging going myself. Teeny charcoal drawings are also a fun challenge! Thanks Foxglove and CaslteQueen5!

    CastleQueen5, when I was a kid, I couldn't even think of looking up cuss words! I was such a goodie-twoshoes that I said 'booty' instead of 'butt'! In fact, it wasn't until I was well into adulthood that I got over thrill-shock of even being able to say b-u-t-t. LOL Now, of course, I don't have those hang-ups, but I still don't say the 'serious' 4-letter words. (Though I have come close a time or two!)

    Every time I see this swap, I remember I need to go check my battered dictionary, It is even in 2 halves. It is battered.

    I found 1/2 of the big tattered dictionary. It started at F. Then digging deeper on the bin shelf. I found the fist 1/2 A to E. Now to think of what words to use.
