Card Making Challenge #45
I discovered Swap-Bot from reading a comment on Janette Lanes Pocket Letter site http://www.pocketletterpals.com and it got my curiosity, so I thought I would join to trial it out.
My first snail mail was a card making challenge with circles. Your swap partner is assigned to you by the co-ordinator, and you make the card according to the template of the event. I sent a message to my partner letting her know I am her partner and will endeavour to complete the card and send off by a certain date. Once I have completed the assignment, I mark off the event as “Sent”. When my swap partner receives my card, I will be rated according to the Swap-Bot system and my swap partner optionally sends me a message. I like the rating system in that the challenge has been met and any extra ratings is a bonus. There will be another partner assigned to me and that partner will make a card for me. I will be given the opportunity to rate the card too.

Swap-Bot Card Making Challenge #45
I swap with Swap-bot!
This is my card I made for my Swap-Bot partner. I made a matching envelop to go with it.
With Jot Magazine
Jot magazine has a vibrant mood board challenge for November.
I just love vibrant, happy colours.
It inspired me to create a birthday card for my best, long time friend.
I dabbed acrylic paint to a floral stencil. Painted some shimmer on green and pink parts. Applied a light media paste which I coloured gold through a tear drop stencil. Printed ‘Happy Birthday’ with an elegant swirl on a laser printer and gold foiled with my recently brought Minc. Added a sticker, ribbon and flower.
Loving how it turned out.
I am enjoying using stencils and experimenting with distress inks and acrylic paint.
Thanks Jot Magazine for the mood board challenge.
I just love the paper collection kits from Lime Tart www.limetart.com.au.
With the May & June collection, I created a birthday card for Ann. Here is the link https://kobiyashi.wordpress.com/ann-birthday

I think these teeny books are fabulous! Gives me ideas to use up my small pieces of paper and would make beautiful gifts! I can see lots of recycling / resuse of things I have around the place.
Thanks for sharing Florence and Freddie! …. These guys are amazing.
