ATCs & Inchies

I am trying to wrap up several swaps I am signed up for before the end of the year. Not sure if it is possible to get them all done, but I am trying! I really like making stuff for swaps and getting the returns in the mail, but not so much on the addressing, posting, mailing, etc. I guess it is just a necessary evil, though.

Meanwhile my craftroom (aka the black hole of time, space, and money) is in serious need of cleaning and organizing. Hubby says I just have too much stuff and I hate to admit it, but I am starting to think so, too! It is amazing how many stamps and inks and supplies go into each little project. Even if I start with a clean desk, it seems to be a big mess by the time I am finished!

Friendly Fowl ATCs (Take 2; Long Story):


Hero Arts Stamps: CL183 Sparkle Clear: Cute Letters, CL155 ClearDesign: Playful Animals

The quote on my ATC is from The Duck by Ogden Nash:

Behold the duck.
It does not cluck.
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks.
It is specially fond
Of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups,
It bottoms ups.

Cupcake Goodness ATCs:


Hero Arts Stamps: CL158 ClearDesign: Cupcakes, CL168 Sparkle Clear: Cupcakes

Love Is In The Air Inchies:


Hero Arts Stamps: CL309 ClearDesign: Whoo Loves You, CL266 ClearDesign: Mix and Match Elements, CL276 ClearDesign: So Sweet

Here is a close-up (trying to show the shine and embossing):



Hubby is impatiently waiting on me. I told him to pause something on TV and that I'd be right there a few minutes ago. Oops. Gotta run...

Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated!

Hugs,
dustypenny (aka Joy)

So cute! Love that duck one! Especially the poem on the back! I know what you mean by having too much stuff but yet we yearn for more! :>
