September Swap Shop


Morning Peeps :)


A little while back, my good friend Alie suggested we do a card swap. But it's not just any old swap. Oh no. It goes a little something like this. Each month, one of us will send some stash to the other. Enough stash to make (one) card (Alie). Then, both using the exact same starting pile of stash, we each have to create something.

I've just discovered Liquid Pearls. Well, actually, that's not true. I've had my bottle for a while, ahem! I didn't realise it would come out so fast when I gave it a hefty squeeze. And another time, I might not lay down so many globs, but hey-ho!

Do, do, dooooo. Do, do, do dooooooooooh! Tra, la, la. Tra, la, laaaaaaah...

I'd like to enter this card at Sketch n Stash:

Katina said...

Hi Faye, love this cute card and I love your penguin one too. Great images on both of them.

I'm so glad you found your bracelet! I remember trying clothes on in Next when the chain around my neck got caught on a button and snapped. The diamond pendant went flying off and I was on my hands and knees (dressed in only my bra and knickers!) trying to find it!

Amanda R said...

LOVE my liquid pearls! I think I have almost every color they make. For background dots though I tend to take the end of a paintbrush or some such thing, squirt some out and then dip and dot them on. Then my card doesn't end up with pimples, just sayin. Love ya! and I think the card swap is an awesome idea and your owls are freakin cute!

Leah Crowe said...

omigosh, those owls are soooo sweet. Loving that scene you created for them.. way cool!!

Alessandra said...
