    I’m retired, but I might be able to find some junk from the phone company. To be honest, I bought all my own office supplies after Southwestern Bell became AT&T, so I pretty much cleared my area out the day I left. That stuff is around here somewhere.

    I haven’t volunteered anywhere but if I did I would love to be a baby rocker at the hospital. I could do that all day long.

    HeyMaggie, you got anything from Southwestern Bell? That would be a blast from the past.

    Prex, great use of the dog's head from the lottery card.

    Hey, how did you get 2 flamingos, PREX? Great Good life flamingo card.

    Your cards are always superb!

    Fabulous cards, prex! Ditto everything that CQ5 said - especially love "He wasn't ordinary" and Man's Best Friend!

    Thank you! I guess I lucked out with the flamingo. I didn't realize I received an extra. I guess Maggie just likes me best

    I happened to already have the Tim Holtz paper doll body, headless, on my work space. That was just kismet I have zero recollection where the doll's head went...

    Great cards, Jen! Those flamingos are from a party banner that I cut up. They tend to stick together. I’m surprised more of you didn’t get two or three of them.

    As for Southwestern Bell stuff, CQ5, I have some things, if I can locate them.

    The last two sets are on their way. Can’t wait to see them!

    Hey Maggie, I find that fish card intriguing. Lots of fish.

    Creative way to make that flamingo all steam punk like. I wish I had thought of that.

    And I could just see that Butterfly card going to TAD,if she is even in this swap. She really like butterflies and esp Purple, But Hey I like butterflies too.

    You got lucky? or did you? with the GIRLY word for Betty Book? I am not into her too much. But have 2 friends that really are into her. Guess what one of the friends is named?. Betty, of Course.
