Tags and Cards swap w/G45 papers

Finished card #4 and on to #5 and #6. I have a couple of tags done and will post those in a bit.

I haven't done a swap in eons but this one was workable as there are only six of us in the swap with a June 1 deadline. I made all mine different which makes doing these even more fun, at least for me.

Notebooks Three and Four

I used velvet papers on both of these covers. The little bird is Grunge Board Glimmer Misted and the one from yesterday was covered with paper I made from inks, krylons and vellum paper. The 'stained' glass is made by dropping and blending alcohol inks with others and then wrapping the glass in gold or copper foil papers.
Thanks for looking!

Sneak Peek (notebook no 2)

I got three more of the notebooks covered at a crop on Sat. I still have the inside stamping to do and a few embellishments to add. I will wrap these all the same and hand them out randomly when we do the gift exchange in Dec. so even if any of the gals are peeking here, they won't know which is theirs. I have one more partially covered and will finish that and then take a break from these.

Happy May Day

and in honor of May Day and to celebrate a pleasant tradition from my childhood, here are two of the three May baskets (cones) I made yesterday. The third is on my other blog (www.postingfromparadise.blogspot.com). Hope your May Day is the best.
