Some swaps I am in

Hello Friends, Just a quick post to share some swaps that I am participating in. This is for "Hat Pins" Oh my goodness, these are so fun to make and oh so easy too. Book Marks made with large paper clips and bottle caps. You cant see it real well, but on the book marks, look around the edge of the bottle caps. I used Pearl Mica flakes mixed with some distress in in "peeled Paint" I love love love how those turned out.Another swap I am in is the bottle cap phone charms. I am really happy how the bottle cap swap turned out. I cant wait to see what I get in return.

We stay at the KOA in our Trailer(home on wheels) and plan the sat. around  going to local Garage sales which the night before we leave, I go on Craig's list and plan our route and then Sunday is spent at the Swap Meet. so, for Garage sales, I found a few goodies like this really cool "Ball" jar, I only paid $1.00 for it. . You can see it on the Pepsi crate in the picture . We also found the chair that you see me sitting in, Can you believe that chair was only $5.00. Craig didn't want to buy it but I knew that was a great deal and the chair is so comfy so I am glad we got it.So that's about as exciting as our Garage sale day got so, Onto the Swap Meet. We did score some really cool stuff like that blue and white shelf/cabinet and those really cool Pepsi crates. We only paid $2.50 ea. on those. Score!!! Whenever we do this trip.

A challenge card

Hello friends. Long time no see, I really have no excuse because I have been sitting at my creating desk every night and just too lazy to post. So sorry but I do have some things I want to share with you all. First, A challenge card that I did complete last night. I really love this card. I made it for a friend that is hosting a swap and I wanted to incorporate the swap "item" into the card. So, the sketch is from CLP Challenge Blog.  So, for my take on the sketch.

 Now, see the "stick pin"? That is a swap I am in. I actually made that one specially for that card and as a little bonus for the swap hostess. I will get into the stick pins in another post so stay tuned.  As for the supplies used on this creation, My color scheme is Old Olive,Blush Blossom(retired SU!) and smooth white. The stamped image is that of "Inkadinkadoo" with some bling added to the chandelier from "Kaisercraft" Thank you sentiment is from "The stamps of life"  &quo…
