I was SWAPPED this weekend!

In between cleaning house, walking beasties, mulching the yard and shopping I managed to work on several swaps.

This one is for our monthly card challenge on Paper Crafting Divas. We did things a little differently this time...instead of a theme, you had to use the sketch. Here is my take on the sketch...the background is an older Heidi Grace paper. The image and sentiment are clip art from the computer...for the haunted house, I colored the windows with a Zig yellow marker and inked the entire sky with a plum Chalk Cat's Eye. Then, to give it more dimension, I covered the entire image with painted on crystal effects. The other circles are from a stack, they are metallic. I really like this card and had fun with the sketch. I am going to have to do a second set of cards to help a member out and I already have a fun idea for it...going to change up the circle...will post when completed!

Here are all the swaps I completed (from top left, clockwise): Recipe cards, Birthday Swap, Monthly card Swap, and Page Elements Swap.

It was a very productive weekend ;)
