Had a hard time using the orange, brown, etc color on the butterfly page so I made a tag using the brown one she sent. Used the fashion yarn and fall leaf and orange hand made paper. Stamped with my crow stamp and added my rhinestones. Used the wood chip R putting some lavender water color pencil, then glue and dipped in my new found mica flakes. Thanks Jen, this was a challenge for me!
This was a fun challenge for me, took me a couple days. But that's what the Mystery is all about.
Thanks Tee for doing these swaps, you got me addicted! http://creationsbytee.blogspot.com/
I have signed up for another match box swap i will tell you about next post. The swaps from now on will be send to my Fl address and i wont be able to see then till around maybe the 28th of Sept. My ATC swap with Tee is in the envelope and ready to send soon as I get my partner. I will be sending my swaps ok from here but will be cutting of my mail soon, and don't want to take the chance not getting mine! I am ready to get back to Fl This has not been a great summer for me, and last weekend found out I need a new furnace. Not going to happen this year. So this means the gas will be turned off and I will have to winterize the house. Not happy camper here.
Talked to dad and his friend put my a/c in the Florida room for me...now that makes me happy camper! I will be making my art room in there and cant wait to get started. There will be obstacles to over come, like that's where dad stores the hurricane shutters and a few other things. i would like to get another storage building or clean out the one we have. But not sure that either will happen. All for now thanks for looking and come back soon.

I started to pack up my altered art supplies today, I sure have more to take back than what I came with. I was wanting to do the camping thing on the way back to Florida, but not sure that will happen. I think there will be a truck full. I am signed up for 3 more swaps, think I can handle that, I hate not being able to swap!! I have a few mystery swaps made up so I will be able to do them. The only problem will be making up what I receive, because it will have to wait until i get back to Fl. So I will just have to put some swapping on hold till I get settled. Hope I don't miss to much :(
I have to figure out how to manage my posting, so that I don't use up my MBites from Verizon before my month is up. Maybe if I use live writer it will help or up load my pic's from my Droid phone, that will save I think. But my pic's will not be so good. Well all for now thanks for looking and come back soon

Well I am back on line. My new G-Bites start to day. I have been trying to figure out what has caused me to use up my 5,000 before my time is up. I think it is because I have been uploading so many more pic's than I use to. That was before my swapping days lol. Maybe I will try sending some with my Droid phone and see if that helps. I have unlimited on my phone. What do you all do? I had a yard sale today along with the rest of the peeps on the east side of town. Did pretty good. Now I have to get caught up and show what I have been working on and what I have received in the mail.
All for now Blessings Donna

The orange rick rack, some of the many I have collected at yard sale, came in handy for this tag. I added some vintage sheet music , orange flowers with rhinestones. Vintage button with rhinestone again. Some gold twisty ribbon on the bottom of tag. Some detail and done. This tag was made on a ATC size card then attached to the shipping tag. Because I forgot what I was doing lol.
Some time ago I joined a Yahoo group but could never get anyone to respond to my post. Then one day a few weeks ago a lady posted wanting to do one on one swaps. Soooo I contacted her and we had our first trade an ATC card. I sent her my Mz. Scarlett card and a note tag along with it. Then I find out she is from Florida ...great... I am looking for some like minded peeps in Florida! I will show what she sent me next post.Weather in Greenville PA.... still warm but not in the 90's... maybe get something done this week. Hmmm will see.... Set up at the flea market did not go good at all... don't think I will go back this year. All for now thanks for looking and come back soon. Blessings Donna
